No Frills

The Mill Market – Newcomb

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

I had driven past The Mill Market in Newcomb many times, for those of you who frequent the Bellarine peninsula you have most likely spotted the massive orange barn on the outskirts of Geelong.  It was only recently that I found time to pop in and rummage through what can only be described as a secondhand megastore.  The two levels of The Mill are brimming with goodies including retro speaker systems, homewares, kitchen cabinets, records, chairs, books, baskets, fishing rods, ladders, clothing, bikes, lamps, shoes, basins, rollerskates, chairs, fans, birdcages… You can even find giant plastic ice-creams in this place!

Description

What could be better than spending a beautiful summer’s day on the beach?  Spending the day on the beach AND shopping for rad secondhand goodies at  Restyle Threads in Rye!   In amongst the many cafes, ice-cream vendors, juice stores and hamburger joints of Rye’s main drag you will find this unassuming secondhand store.  Restyle Threads has some quality secondhand goods – mostly fairly mundane with the occasional gem.  Whilst in store I picked up a lovely secondhand Laura Ashley wool hat and a brown Italian made leather bag – excellent!

Savers – Footscray

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
   

 

Description

This West-side outpost of the Savers conglomerate is a whopper.  The collection of stock is huge, they even had a dedicated Halloween costume section when I visited.  Like all good secondhand megastores the Footscray Savers has an air of organised chaos, the sense of chaos was probably compounded by the hoards of people looking for Halloween costumes.  The stock here includes clothing, furniture, hats, shoes, bags, toys, homewares, sports equipment, records, books, belts, ties, sunglasses, jewellery and electrical goods.

Community First Op Shop – North Melbourne

Description

As you make your way down Queensberry Street keep your eyes peeled for the blue awning that adorns the entry to Community First Op Shop.  Inside you will find a strange melange of secondhand goods including clothing, shoes, records, books, VHS, lamps, mannequins, vases, homeswares, jewellery, suitcases and bags.  Amongst the chaos there were a number of stand out items – a beautifully crafted 1930s golf club, baby blue typewriter, metal chests, scales and a number of world weary suitcases.
