Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
Description

This vintage store houses a bounty of treasures  - typewriters, clocks, vases, lamps, phones (some in the shape of lips – oh yeah), radios, mirror balls, musical instruments, suitcases, books… oh and did I mention it’s also a barbers?  It’s an odd combination but it seems to work – the barber attends to his customer while I gleefully browse through the stock undisturbed but able to ask questions if need be.

Little Prince

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Little Prince offers a mixture of new and vintage stock with an emphasis on design and beautiful detailing.  Considering the petit size of the store and abundance of stock it is surprising to discover a sense of calm inside Little Prince.  The furniture in store has been sourced from around the globe; new, beautifully crafted, bespoke Japanese chest of drawers sit harmoniously next to English and Danish vintage buffets and cabinets.  It seems that the price of larger items is negotiable so if you are interested in a particular piece it may be worth talking to the owner.  At the time of my visit there were a couple of fantastic retro standing lamps (see photo below), some charming vases and collectables in the cabinet to the rear of the shop.  Much of the new stock, in particular the stationary, is also quite lovely.

Vintage Garage

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

If you are in the market for some pre-loved accessories, look no further!  The cabinets at Vintage Garage are sure to satisfy your hankering for retro jewellery, bags, shoes, hats, belts and homewares (notable offerings include a fondu set with original forks and burner).  There is also a array of signage, curtain material, lamps and wall hangings for those interested in fitting out their home or business with vintage garb, a personal favourite was an Audrey Hepburn print (see photo below).  In addition to the plethora of accessories is a vast collection of clothing – mostly women’s – including fur jackets, shrugs and wraps, bathers, dresses, cardigans, jackets, jumpers, shirts… etc.  It really has to be seen to be believed.  FYI – the men’s collection is due to arrive on the 9th of March 2012.
