Savers – Sydney Road

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

This secondhand mega store on Sydney road was a hive of activity when I visited on Sunday.  The racks and shelves at Savers are teeming with stock and are super organised – making what would otherwise be a completely overwhelming experience only mildly overwhelming.  I could happily spend hours in this store rummaging through the barrage of stock which includes, clothes, furniture, prams, homewares, luggage, books, games, collectables, accessories, bags, belts, jewellery, ties and much more.  For me the highlight was discovering an old Singer sewing machine in amongst the furniture.

Circa Vintage Clothing

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

This vintage treasure trove on Gertrude Street is a testament to the depth of knowledge and commitment of its owner Nicole Jenkins.  There are around 1000 items in store, a further 1000 listed online and thousands more awaiting display.  The quality of stock in Circa is outstanding thanks to the great skill and attention that has been invested in restoring each item to its former glory.  Repairs and restorations are done in-house by Circa’s staff Nicole, Kate and Esther.  For me the highlight of this vintage store was the superlative collection of vintage hats – check them out!

The brightly coloured walls of this vintage store are lined with racks of quality secondhand clothing – beautiful blouses, stunning skirts, delightful dresses and much more – it may be small but Harry Wragg sure packs a punch!  The collection of unique articles has been carefully selected with a wide variety of styles, sizes and colours on display.  There are some fantastic accessories (both vintage and new), notably a bright yellow glomesh bag in the window display.  There is also a sale section at the rear for those in search of a bargain.

Shappere, Smith Street

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Hello pretty vintage dresses!  If the wonderfully vibrant fabrics of Shappere’s shirts, skirts and dresses aren’t enough to lure you inside this smallish vintage store then perhaps the divine collection of leather jackets and shoes will do the trick.   The Smith Street store opened its doors in 2008 and is one of two Shappere stores currently operating in Melbourne (the other is located on Chapel Street).  Beyond the enchanting window display you will find a collection of both mens and womens-wear, including shirts, skirts, dresses, jackets, vests, shoes, bags, hats, belts, sunglasses and jewellery.
