HOT: 84 Smith Street, 84 Smith St, Collingwood

I love to catch up on my window-shopping at 84 Smith Street. This vintage collectables and furniture shop has a constant rotation of eye-catching items in its storefront, from a plastic drinks-serving robot to mid-century Danish dining chairs to old-fashioned metal filing cabinets. Wendy Dracoulis and her husband only sell pieces that they like and […]

HOT: Melbourne Op Shop Tours (Part 2), Inner West, Williamstown to Footscray

Read Part 1 of the tour here. Another quick train ride to Spotswood then St John’s Op Shop (612-614 Melbourne Rd, Spotswood). ‘Great variety of household goods’ is an accurate description, with ‘variety’ being the operative word.

HOT: Thread Den Market, Lithuanian Club, 44 Errol St, North Melbourne

I LOVE markets. I will even travel across town for an hour on public transport on a Sunday morning to get to a market if it’s being organised by the lovely ladies of Thread Den.
