Located on Sydney Road (almost opposite Savers) this small vintage store is in the perfect position to capitalise on the thrifty, secondhand seeking, pedestrian traffic in the nearby area. The collection includes clothing (men’s and women’s), books, lamps, scarfs, tables clothes, stereos, collectables, accessories, children’s wear, toys… quite an eclectic mix for such a small store.
This Sunday I took a trip to Brunswick to check out Harry Wragg’s warehouse sale. As you would expect, it was far less glamourous than their city store (recently reviewed on VM – Harry Wragg CBD). Outside there were boxes of stock at bargain prices, meanwhile inside things were far more organised, with racks full of stock at slightly higher prices but requiring far less rummaging.

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!
Owners Rachel and Gary have been running this gorgeous vintage store on Johnston Street for around two and a half years. The collection is predominantly furniture, collectables and homewares with a smattering of signage, maps, clothes, shoes, bags and other accessories. Nook also stocks a number of new items including gifts cards, glass beakers and cloches. There are stacks of chairs, literally, for those looking for a complete set for their home or business. The displays are simple and elegant, with just the right amount of apparent chaos.
Hello pretty vintage dresses! If the wonderfully vibrant fabrics of Shappere’s shirts, skirts and dresses aren’t enough to lure you inside this smallish vintage store then perhaps the divine collection of leather jackets and shoes will do the trick. The Smith Street store opened its doors in 2008 and is one of two Shappere stores currently operating in Melbourne (the other is located on Chapel Street). Beyond the enchanting window display you will find a collection of both mens and womens-wear, including shirts, skirts, dresses, jackets, vests, shoes, bags, hats, belts, sunglasses and jewellery.
