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!

Lost & Found – Brunswick

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

As you may have guessed this marvellous vintage store on Lygon Street is the sibling of the Lost & Found Market in Collingwood.  Consequently, I had great expectations… and it delivered!  Similar to the Perry Street outpost, the Brunswick Lost & Found is divided into stalls each with its own theme and focus.  Some stalls specialise is stereos and record players, others feature bikes and many of the stalls stock furniture, clothing, accessories, homewares and collectables – you really must see it for yourself to understand the magnitude of this collection!

Clearance Centre, Smith Street

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

This place is chaos!  There is no discernible order to the collection here with items strewn across this cavernous variety shop.  I use the term ‘variety’ as the Clearance Centre on Smith Street is not exclusively secondhand.  The collection of bikes that line the storefront hint at the farrago of objects inside this thrift store: bikes, books, wigs, luggage, vacuums, oriental fans, stereos, blenders, clothing, linen, toy, collectables, memorabilia, lamps, shopping trolleys, cassettes… even ice-skates!  There are heaps of bikes here, some don’t appear to be in working order however the man running the store seems adept at fixing them so if you are interested in a particular specimen it may be worthwhile talking to him.
