Sally’s Retro Fashion

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

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.

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.
