Description

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!

Hunter Gatherer – Brotherhood of St Laurence

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Who knew a not-for-profit vintage store could be so fabulous?  I had always assumed that Hunter Gatherer was privately owned but in actual fact it is run by the Brotherhood of St Laurence.  The collection here is hand picked from the hundreds of thousands of items donated each year to the Brotherhood of St Laurence – so this really is the cream of the crop.  The stock is affordably priced and best of all you know the proceeds are going to charity.  Most of the collection is dedicated to womenswear however there is a small array of menswear.  There is also a smattering of accessories and homewares.

Currency – Vintage Clothing

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

In amongst the trendy cafes and sleek clothing stores on Brunswick Street you will find a number of great vintage stores, including Currency.  It was a miserable Melbourne day when I visited, making the vibrantly coloured selection in store all the more enticing.  The collection is predominantly clothing (men’s and women’s), accessories and shoes, with a smattering of specialty items such as a secondhand typewriter for $30 (see photo below).  The store is well set out and full to the brim with good quality stock which makes for happy vintage hunting.
