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.

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.
