Fitzroy

Garage & sidewalk sales

On 27, Apr 2013 | One Comment | In $, 1, Carlton, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Massive, No Frills, Thornbury | By Rosie

Description

A curious phenomenon is taking place in the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne, and perhaps elsewhere.  I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed the increasing number of swap-meets, garage and sidewalk sales lining the pavements and median strip of these vibrant suburbs.  It seems that many Melbournians interested in recycling their worldly goods are opting to cut out the middle man (markets, op-shops and secondhand stores) and sell their wares directly to passing traffic.  Obviously the success of any such sale will likely be determined by the level of pedestrian (and  bicycle) traffic in the area.

Sally’s Retro Fashion

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Being one of the first vintage stores on Smith Street, Sally’s Retro Fashion could be considered a pioneer.  This pre-loved store opened its doors some 15 years ago, and has played witness to the transformation of Smith over the past decade and a half.  The displays in this store could do with some attention, especially when compared to other secondhand traders in the area.  Having said this, the collection itself is solid – gloves, hats, ties, suspenders, bags, belts, jackets, shirts, jumpers, pants, skirts, jewellery, shoes and even bras can all be found at Sally’s Retro Fashion.
