Grandfathers Axe

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Grandfathers Axe is a Mecca for those seeking vintage furniture, particularly Danish furniture.  Despite its size it is quite easy to miss this massive secondhand furniture warehouse which is set back for High Street in Northcote.  Inside you will find a sea of sofas, chairs, dining suites, wall units, lights and sideboards, and with a new container of stock arriving from Europe every few weeks the range is constantly changing.  Grandfathers Axe’s comprehensive website is updated regularly to help keep you abreast of the new items, but to be honest nothing compares to seeing and feeling the pieces in the flesh.

Description

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world that is Tarlo & Graham.  This wacky vintage store on Gertrude Street takes the place of Industria – a secondhand stalwart that inhabited the space for a number of years.  If you’re in the market for some taxidermied goods, latex glove moulds, sciences beakers or animal horns this is the place to visit!  And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy there’s also some less quirky offerings like the beautiful set lights and furniture.

Department of History

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
   

 

Description

Department of History on High Street, Thornbury is a feast for the senses.  The music is rocking, the place smells like furniture polish and there are so many wonderful things to see and touch.  The only sense that misses out is taste, sadly I feel that licking the beautiful furniture might be frowned upon by the establishment… and probably wouldn’t taste very nice anyway.  This superb vintage store stocks a wide variety of wares from clothes to light fixtures, with stand out pieces including a massive timber desk with leather top in mint condition, loads of old magazines, fabulous glassware and old-school test tubes in timber holders (these were being used as vases in the store – very snazzy).
