Hidden beyond the understated frontage of this sweet little store you will find a treasury of vintage items ranging from vinyl records to glomesh bags to purple tulle Cyndi Lauper-esque skirts.  Much of the collection is dedicated to women’s clothes and accessories however there is a small selection of men’s gear which I’m told is going to expand in the near future.

The Bar Dream – The Sandy Bunker

On 15, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In CBD, Events | By Rosie


For those of you who missed the memo The Bar Dream is currently taking place on the level four of the iconic Carlton Hotel.  For the month of July six small licensed spaces will be open to the public, making the dream of opening a bar a reality for six creative Melbournites.  Each bar has a different theme, for the vintage lovers out there I’m guessing The Sandy Bunker will be the pick of the bunch with it’s 1920’s finery and delicious cocktails.  Astor Productions, the team that brought you The Gatsby Winter and Gatsby Spring Soiree, is responsible for the creation of The Sandy Bunker.  This glorious vintage cocktail lounge is full of old world charm and sure to impress!

*See comment below from Mick.  Vinyl Space is now closed, however Micka has opened a new store located at 119a Johnston Street, Collingwood.  Enjoy!

I stumbled upon this terrific little store a few weekends ago when I was in search of some vintage pendant lights in Thornbury.  Vinyl Space is joint project between Michael Smajdor and Top Hat Antiques, which is located just down the road at 873 High Street.  The store is understated and could easily be missed if you’re experiencing some kind of hangover/post-brunch food coma, a condition I find myself afflicted with most weekends… Anyway, my point is you need to keep you’re eyes peeled.  Alongside the vinyl, there are some excellent lamps, canisters and a wonderfully retro record player.  For those too lazy to leave the comfort of their couch you can also check out the collection on the Vinyl Space website.
