Windsor

Furniture & Antiques

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

I recently stumbled upon this secondhand store in Windsor and was pleasantly surprised by what I found inside.  The fit out is decidedly no frills but for those with a keen eye and a willingness to do a little rummaging there is gold to be found in amongst the clutter.  The hodgepodge collection includes clothing, glassware, crockery, hats, jewellery boxes, furniture, globes, framed artwork, vases, records and lots of lamps.

Chapel Street Bazaar

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Given its status as a south side vintage institution, it would be remiss of me to not to visit The Chapel Street Bazaar whilst in Prahran.  Like many other secondhand stores of this scale the Chapel Street Bazaar is broken up into individual stalls, each curated by a different pre-loved purveyor.  Inside this enormous shop you will find a cacophony of goodies including furniture, glassware, crockery, telephones, crystal, canistes, lamps, stamps, slides, records, dolls & figurines, record players, shoes, clothing, watches, jewellery, globes, cameras, model boats, rocking horses… I could go on for days – seriously!

Dorothy & Evelyn

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

As the name would suggest, the collection at Dorothy and Evelyn is distinctly feminine.  The walls of this very pretty vintage store are lined with racks of beautiful blouses, pretty summer dress, jumpers, skirts and cardigans.  They also stock an array of accessories including bags, jewellery, belts, sunglasses, wallets and purses – some new and some vintage –  all of which are delightful.  There is also a smattering of homewares, you’ll find a number great retro canisters are dotted around the place but it is unclear whether these are for sale or purely decorative.

Salvos – Chapel Street

On 03, Sep 2012 | No Comments | In $, 2, Bags, Belts, Big, Books, Clothing, Hats, Homewares, Jewellery, No Frills, Shoes, Windsor | By Rosie

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Salvos on Smith Street is definitely one of the more vibrant Salvos stores I’ve been to.  Presumably the fit-out was inherited from whatever retail space had previously tenanted the space giving this store a bit of a head start as far as visual merchandising is concerned.  The collection is well presented and includes clothes, homewares, bags, hats, belts, artwork, jewellery, shoes, books and much more.

Mission Op Shop – Chapel Street

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Mission Op Shop was a little hectic when I visited, with staff and donations in abundance, there is potential for this opportunity shop to be quite lovely once it settles into its groove.  The front of the store is brimming with men’s and women’s clothing whilst out the back you will find books, CDs, games, records, shoes, accessories and sporting equipment – there was even a set of retro golf clubs!  The slightly disorderly stock makes for good rummaging and there are plenty of staff around to assist with any queries you might have.  The Mission is currently recruiting volunteers, offering training and a supportive work environment for people overcoming mental illness.  Donations are welcome and all proceeds from the store go towards supporting The Mission.
