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!

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.

Salvos – North Melbourne

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP
Description

Given it’s location amongst the ever increasing throng of cafes and restaurants on Errol Street I was expecting this North Melbourne Salvos to be a hive of activity when I visited on Saturday morning.  This was not the case.  It was very quiet, with just a couple of others milling around the store. The stock included clothes, furniture (couches, entertainment cabinets, mattresses), homewares, accessories, children’s wear, toys, VHS, CDs, puzzles and a collection of bizarre frog ornaments.

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.
