Sorry for procrastinating again, I am supposed to post this a month ago but I was so occupied and kept working on my papers for the whole March… However, I still did some interesting research on local vintage vendors during this month and now I have plenty shops to add on for this article 😉 that is definitely the good part for procrastinating hahah.
Now I can proudly tell you that I have been to all of their shops in Melbourne: which are in Northcote, Carlton and Fitzroy respectively. My opinion is these three shops have slightly different positioning: the one is Northcote is more like a warehouse store and you can see it always having sale; while the Fitzroy one and Carlton one is more like a boutique with selected brands and the pricing would also be higher.

Lost & Found
Unlike those vintage boutiques I introduced above, Lost & Found is more like a vintage flea market. It reminds me of those old markets in Europe, where you can find literally ANYTHING in the market: clothes, bags, furniture, CDs, accessories and handicrafts … it is such an ideal place to explore and to kill an afternoon 🙂
Address: 499-511 Lygon St, East Brunswick VIC 3057
American Vintage Clothing Co
Another vintage shop located at Fitzroy. I strongly recommend you to visit Fitzroy if you are a vintage/art/cafe/food/bar/music lover, this place is magical and literally have everything you want. 90s bomber jackets and American jeans are just everywhere in the shop, go check it out and there are also several interesting fashion boutiques near the shop. Overall, I LOVE FITZROY!! (@Fashionmimo)
