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!
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!
Prepare yourself for the visual onslaught that is My Delirium. Split over two levels this recent addition to Johnston Street is bursting with colour… literary, it’s spilling out onto the pavement. Beyond the glass and metal clad facade you will find an array of women’s clothing, shoes and accessories. The collection is small but sensational and all stock is in great condition.
Next time you find yourself cruising down Point Nepean Rd take a pit stop at this pleasant little op shop. Beyond the lack lustre facade you will find clothing, homewares, toys, VHS, DVDs, sporting goods, records, books, haberdashery, hats, bags, belts and loads more. As you would expect at a country op shop such is this the prices are low and the quality of stock varies.
Yeehaaa!! If you’re in the market for a pair of cowboy boots look no further! Vintage Sole stocks a great range of both men’s and women’s boots. The collection is not exclusively cowboy boots in fact I picked up a lovely pair of red leather shoes (see below). In store you will also find a small array of jackets, shirts, dresses, skirts, bags and belts.
