Chapel Street Bazaar

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Given its status as a south side vintage institution, it would be remiss of me to not to visit The Chapel Street Bazaar whilst in Prahran.  Like many other secondhand stores of this scale the Chapel Street Bazaar is broken up into individual stalls, each curated by a different pre-loved purveyor.  Inside this enormous shop you will find a cacophony of goodies including furniture, glassware, crockery, telephones, crystal, canistes, lamps, stamps, slides, records, dolls & figurines, record players, shoes, clothing, watches, jewellery, globes, cameras, model boats, rocking horses… I could go on for days – seriously!

One Nine One, Bridge Road

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

It was St Patrick’s day when I visited One Nine One on Bridge Road and the themed window display hinted at the fun and fabulous vintage store that lay beyond.  Inside this Australian Red Cross op-shop you will find a sea of clothes, scarfs, belts, ties, hats, shoes, sunglasses, bags, wallets, books, records, homewares, cameras, disc-mans, suitcases, a small amount of furniture and much more.  From the swish change rooms down to the timber coat hangers it is obvious that a lot of love and attention has been invested in this opportunity shop – there is even the opportunity to try before you buy with a record player and headphones set up amongst the collection of vinyl records.  Many of the accessories look brand new or barely worn and have been carefully sorted and displayed (see photos below).  At the rear of the store you will find the secondhand book section complete with reading chairs, a lovely place to sit if you need a little respite from all that shopping.

Lost and Found Market – NOW CLOSED

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Unfortunately the Collingwood branch of Lost & Found is now closed, but you can check out the East Brunswick Lost and Found on weekends from 10am – 6pm.

Description

Welcome to vintage nirvana! This pre-loved paradise consists of a series of small stalls run by individual stakeholders, resulting in pockets of hand selected vintage stock each with its own flavour and focus – some are filled with cameras, many are crammed with clothes and shoes, while others are brimming with homewares and furniture.  The Lost and Found Market has been running since 2004, during this time it has shifted to various locations in Collingwood, most recently to Perry Street, just off Smith Street.  Ross (the owner) and his team have once again demonstrated their  capacity to turn an empty warehouse into a vintage wonderland.  Their clever layout and manipulation of space will guide you on a journey through the cornucopia of stock – this thrift store is massive, so be prepared to spend many hours absorbing its vintage delights.
