Hidden beyond the understated frontage of this sweet little store you will find a treasury of vintage items ranging from vinyl records to glomesh bags to purple tulle Cyndi Lauper-esque skirts. Much of the collection is dedicated to women’s clothes and accessories however there is a small selection of men’s gear which I’m told is going to expand in the near future.
Beyond the Victorian shop front of 303 Clarendon Street is a secondhand wonderland heaving with furniture, homewares, jewellery and artwork. It’s hard to walk past this store without being lured inside by the the array of secondhand furniture littering the pavement. The collection here is eclectic, with antiques from the 19th and 20th century rubbing shoulders with retro and modern pieces.

I had driven past The Mill Market in Newcomb many times, for those of you who frequent the Bellarine peninsula you have most likely spotted the massive orange barn on the outskirts of Geelong. It was only recently that I found time to pop in and rummage through what can only be described as a secondhand megastore. The two levels of The Mill are brimming with goodies including retro speaker systems, homewares, kitchen cabinets, records, chairs, books, baskets, fishing rods, ladders, clothing, bikes, lamps, shoes, basins, rollerskates, chairs, fans, birdcages… You can even find giant plastic ice-creams in this place!
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!

As you make your way down Queensberry Street keep your eyes peeled for the blue awning that adorns the entry to Community First Op Shop. Inside you will find a strange melange of secondhand goods including clothing, shoes, records, books, VHS, lamps, mannequins, vases, homeswares, jewellery, suitcases and bags. Amongst the chaos there were a number of stand out items – a beautifully crafted 1930s golf club, baby blue typewriter, metal chests, scales and a number of world weary suitcases.
