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.

This beautifully presented vintage store on High Street Northcote stocks a range of homewares and collectables from all over the globe, with French and Belgian pieces featuring prominently.  The owner, Penny Attwill, spent a number of years studying in France. During this time she developed a love of all things French and has since travelled back many times in search of items for her Melbourne store.  La Brocante also stocks a range of new giftware, cards, books and decorative bird houses which dominate the front of the store; most of the vintage wares are located at the rear.  Vintage highlights include number stamps, scales and European maps.

Grandfathers Axe

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Grandfathers Axe is a Mecca for those seeking vintage furniture, particularly Danish furniture.  Despite its size it is quite easy to miss this massive secondhand furniture warehouse which is set back for High Street in Northcote.  Inside you will find a sea of sofas, chairs, dining suites, wall units, lights and sideboards, and with a new container of stock arriving from Europe every few weeks the range is constantly changing.  Grandfathers Axe’s comprehensive website is updated regularly to help keep you abreast of the new items, but to be honest nothing compares to seeing and feeling the pieces in the flesh.
