This secondhand emporium is off the beaten track but well worth a trip if you are looking for unusual collectables and homewares. The collection is quite vast and is housed in and around three decommissioned tram carriages. Stock includes vintage crockery, cutlery, scales, camping and military equipment, lamps, clocks, telephones,cabinets, mirrors, traffic lights, plumbing fixtures, hats, luggage, artwork, cast iron furniture, wagon wheels, globes, refrigerators, punch bowls (with matching cups and ladel – a personal favourite), as well as bizarre items such as 1920s gas masks and surprisingly beautiful meat safes.
This place has great novelty value, there are items in these carriages that I have never seen before in my life and I imagine one could easily spend hours picking through the massive collection. All Aboard Old Wares and Collectables is a little pricey given the chaotic state of the store, having said that it is a truley unique collection. If I were to ever open a cafe I’d be back here in a jiffy to source much of the decor. I understand it’s a bit of a trek but if you’re in the area I’d recommend taking a detour to explore this strange but wonderful vintage store.
Saturday & Sunday: 10am – 5pm
