Description

Memorabilia On Smith is a special breed of vintage store with the overwhelming focus being sporting and gaming memorabilia.  The window display sets the tone for this chaotic and fascinating secondhand store brimming with nostalgia.  Inside you will find loads of sporting memorabilia (mostly AFL), such as team photos, jumpers, footballs, stubbie holders, scarfs, backpacks, crockery and much more.  Non-football related collectables include carnival clowns, books, signage (Coopers, Coke, Milk Bar, Peters, railway …etc), lolly jars, toys, figurines, typewriters, posters, Pez dispensers, milkshake topping dispensers, scoreboards, cigarette dispensers.

The Verdict

This vintage store is unlike any other I have visited – for a football fanatic, I imagine this is what heaven might look like.  For me the railway signs, massive lolly jars and old sports scoreboards were the highlight.   Visit the website for further information regarding the buying, selling and hiring of stock.  The owner wasn’t too keen on me taking photos which is why there aren’t many, but if you wish to see more of what’s on offer you’ll find plenty of photos in the online gallery.
