$$$ Price guide: getting pricey
Shag is a veteran vintage purveyor and time has by no means diminished its vitality. This gem of a vintage store can be found on the corner of Rose Brunswick Streets in Fitzroy. The collection is mostly dedicated to women’s apparel and accessories: shirts, dresses, fur jackets, trousers, skirts, shoes, bags, jewellery, scarfs, hats and much more. Shag’s stock is lovingly displayed and organised with just the right amount of chaos.
This vintage store is an institution and it has been somewhat remiss of me to not have reviewed it until now. The store is quite small but the racks and shelves are crammed with goodies. A personal favourite was the pleated, herringbone patterned dress, which was sadly too small – damn those 60s ladies and their tiny waists! There was also a wonderful birdcage style hanger festooned with dangling handbags. I hear there is another Shag on Chapel Street, which is now on my hit list, but for now you should check this store next time you’re on Brunswick Street.
