Hats

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!

Dorothy & Evelyn

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

As the name would suggest, the collection at Dorothy and Evelyn is distinctly feminine.  The walls of this very pretty vintage store are lined with racks of beautiful blouses, pretty summer dress, jumpers, skirts and cardigans.  They also stock an array of accessories including bags, jewellery, belts, sunglasses, wallets and purses – some new and some vintage –  all of which are delightful.  There is also a smattering of homewares, you’ll find a number great retro canisters are dotted around the place but it is unclear whether these are for sale or purely decorative.

Salvos – Chapel Street

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Salvos on Smith Street is definitely one of the more vibrant Salvos stores I’ve been to.  Presumably the fit-out was inherited from whatever retail space had previously tenanted the space giving this store a bit of a head start as far as visual merchandising is concerned.  The collection is well presented and includes clothes, homewares, bags, hats, belts, artwork, jewellery, shoes, books and much more.

Description

Shag is a veteran vintage purveyor and time has by no means diminished its vitality.  This gem of a vintage store can be found on the corner of Rose Brunswick Streets in Fitzroy.  The collection is mostly dedicated to women’s apparel and accessories: shirts, dresses, fur jackets, trousers, skirts, shoes, bags, jewellery, scarfs, hats and much more.  Shag’s stock is lovingly displayed and organised with just the right amount of chaos.

Brotherhood of St Laurence

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

The Brotherhood of St Laurence stands as proof that not for profit stores needn’t lack character or charm as this store has both in abundance.  This opportunity store has really upped its game since last time I visited with a fabulous Hunter Gather ‘fancy section’ at the front of the store, which features an array of fashionable and popular items – fur jackets, dresses, blouses, suitcases, lamps & dressers – hand-picked from the larger BSL collection.  The general stock includes books, bags, scarfs hats, shoes, clothing, homewares, furniture, linen, children’s wear, sunglasses, artwork and much more.
