Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

As you walk into 20th Century Scandinavia you can smell the furniture polish… and as you move further into the store you will see staff rubbing that furniture polish onto one of that many superlative pieces of furniture housed in this den of wonders.  There are tables, armchairs, lamps, desks, buffets (even some with those magical disappearing doors), sideboards, hat stands and cabinets all hailing from a bygone Scandinavia. Out the back you will find loads of chairs, tables, chests of drawer and a vintage pinball machine.

Brotherhood of St Laurence

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Brotherhood of St Laurence stands as proof that not for profit stores needn’t lack character or charm as this store has both in abundance.  This opportunity store has really upped its game since last time I visited with a fabulous Hunter Gather ‘fancy section’ at the front of the store, which features an array of fashionable and popular items – fur jackets, dresses, blouses, suitcases, lamps & dressers – hand-picked from the larger BSL collection.  The general stock includes books, bags, scarfs hats, shoes, clothing, homewares, furniture, linen, children’s wear, sunglasses, artwork and much more.

Harry Wragg – Warehouse Sale

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

This Sunday I took a trip to Brunswick to check out Harry Wragg’s warehouse sale.  As you would expect, it was far less glamourous than their city store (recently reviewed on VM – Harry Wragg CBD).  Outside there were boxes of  stock at bargain prices, meanwhile inside things were far more organised, with racks full of stock at slightly higher prices but requiring far less rummaging.
