Make sure you check out the Geelong Vintage Market which has a huge range of rambling antique collector’s stalls and collections. You’ll find things ranging from trinkets to more serious treasures of days gone by. You’ll find a second market at Hesse St in Queenscliff.
Find fantastic vintage clothing, industrial goodies, rustic furniture, second hand books, music memorabilia, vinyls, 70’s clothing, second hand dealer buyers and of course, outstanding Cafe’s.
Bottom Draw Antiques and Henderson’s Vintage Warehouse are located in North Geelong and have dirt cheap vintage collectables, it’s a popular sport for antique sellers to shop, meaning you’ll need a keen eye and a dab hand at haggling, but well worth it for those who delve.
St Andrews Salvage and Collectables has an eclectic range of antiques suited for pickers and collectors.
How Bazaar is a shed-sized shop, aptly named for it’s incredible mix of furniture, memorabilia, signage, collectables and weird and bizarre gadgets.
