Melbourne vintage furniture, thrift shops and vintage stores

Multiple dealers under one roof. If you love digging through a crazy selection of secondhand furniture, pre-loved homewares and weird bits and pieces, then vintage market places are for you.

They generally offer individual stalls leased by a variety of dealers inside a large warehouse space. Wares vary from antique to retro, and often reflect the individual styles of each stall holder. Expect to find antiques; collectables; retro, rustic, industrial or upcycled furniture; crockery and glassware; clothing and accessories; music; books and memorabilia.

Chapel Street Bazaar

ADDRESS:  217 Chapel Street, Prahran, Victoria
PHONE:  03 9529 1727
OPEN HOURS:  7 days 10am – 6pm

This bazaar makes the most of cramped space by filling right up to the ceiling and it feels a little overwhelming on the first visit. Due to space restrictions there is not a lot of big furniture in here so expect to find plenty of smaller collectable homewares, records, vintage clothing and lighting.


Waverley Antique Bazaar

ADDRESS:  88 Garden Rd, Clayton, Victoria
PHONE: 03 8522 7895
OPEN HOURS:  7 days 10am – 5pm
WEBSITE:  Facebook

It may be a bit of a drive out to Clayton if you don’t live nearby but this bazaar is worth a visit. It’s a huge space, well laid out with wide aisles and plenty of room to move, and I found the variety of stalls really appealing. Instead of different versions of the same stuff there is a clear style distinction from stall to stall which makes browsing really interesting. Think industrial, upcycled, shabby chic, retro, country, rustic, refined antique, collectable or kitsch. There is also plenty of space for bigger furniture items so you’ll find old workbenches and antique tools, vintage armchairs, all sorts of homewares, signage and clothing.


Syber’s Vintage Bazaar
