Hello Sailor Vintage Fair – Melbourne Central

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Last weekend I popped into Melbourne Central to check out the Hello Sailor Vintage Fair.  Clustered at the base of the Shot Tower was an array of vintage stalls each selling a variety of wares including sunglasses, belts, shoes, bags, hats, scarfs, jewellery, dresses, jumpers, jackets, skirts, shirts and much more.  The vast majority of the items for sale were for women, but there was also a smattering of men’s shirts and jackets.

Just across the road from Ace Antiques is another North Melbourne vintage jewel – Martin Fella Vintage.  Split over two levels this store stocks mostly clothing (men’s and women’s) along with some great homewares and accessories including tapestry bags, leather belts, colourful canisters, lamps, tea cups, glomesh bags, gloves, lamps, bangles, earrings, scarfs, shoes and hats.  The collection might be small but is sure to impress.

Australian Red Cross, Fitzroy

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
     

 

Description

Another delightful offering from the Australian Red Cross – you would never guess that this fabulous little vintage shop is not for profit.  I’m guessing this Red Cross outpost has the luxury of being more selective than other stores, and you get to reap the benefits.  Prices are higher than you would expect to find at your average op-shop, but I guess that’s the premium one must pay for the convenience and quality offered by the Red Cross on Brunswick Street.  The collection consists, predominantly of clothing, shoes, accessories, a smattering of homewares and some vinyl records thrown in for good measure.

Episode Vintage

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
     

 

Description

I have walked passed this store a number of times but had never gone inside.  This was because I believed Episode stocked mostly new products, which was the case until recently.  Now, it seems, the folks at Episode have shifted their focus to selling solely vintage wears – very pleasing!  The collection at Episode Vintage is quite vast and includes men’s and women’s clothing (cycling tops, bomber jackets, leather jackets, shirts, skirts, dresses, jumpers, coats), bags, wallets, scarfs, shoes, homewares, sewing machines, hats and a small collection of furniture.  The rear of the store appears to be a work in progress but I’m sure that will be sorted out over the coming weeks/months as Episode transitions to full vintage mode.

Hunter Gatherer – Brotherhood of St Laurence

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

Who knew a not-for-profit vintage store could be so fabulous?  I had always assumed that Hunter Gatherer was privately owned but in actual fact it is run by the Brotherhood of St Laurence.  The collection here is hand picked from the hundreds of thousands of items donated each year to the Brotherhood of St Laurence – so this really is the cream of the crop.  The stock is affordably priced and best of all you know the proceeds are going to charity.  Most of the collection is dedicated to womenswear however there is a small array of menswear.  There is also a smattering of accessories and homewares.
