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!

Description

This vintage treasure trove on Gertrude Street is a testament to the depth of knowledge and commitment of its owner Nicole Jenkins.  There are around 1000 items in store, a further 1000 listed online and thousands more awaiting display.  The quality of stock in Circa is outstanding thanks to the great skill and attention that has been invested in restoring each item to its former glory.  Repairs and restorations are done in-house by Circa’s staff Nicole, Kate and Esther.  For me the highlight of this vintage store was the superlative collection of vintage hats – check them out!

Salvos – Victoria Crescent

Price Quality Size Vibe NFP

 

Description

It was Saturday afternoon when I visited the Salvos Store on Victoria Crescent and the place was a hive of activity -bustling with both staff and customers.  The somewhat banal facade of this warehouse does not do justice to the exciting assemblage of secondhand goods inside, which includes clothing, shoes, ties, belts, hats,vinyl records, toys, sports equipment, DVDs & VHS, homewares, artwork, outdoor furniture, lounges, dressers, beds, mattresses, cushions, buttons, lamps, stools, ladders… and much much more.  Salvos stores rely on donations, conveniently this opportunity store has a dedicated loading bay at the rear which is open seven days a week.  The collection point is staffed, ensuring that all donations get to their intended destination and are not left exposed to the elements.
