Being one of the first vintage stores on Smith Street, Sally’s Retro Fashion could be considered a pioneer. This pre-loved store opened its doors some 15 years ago, and has played witness to the transformation of Smith over the past decade and a half. The displays in this store could do with some attention, especially when compared to other secondhand traders in the area. Having said this, the collection itself is solid – gloves, hats, ties, suspenders, bags, belts, jackets, shirts, jumpers, pants, skirts, jewellery, shoes and even bras can all be found at Sally’s Retro Fashion.

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.
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.
