It’s been a while, I’m sorry, I have been in Australia visiting my big brother so I couldn’t post. Although while I was out there I managed to explore some of Melbourne and Sydney’s vintage shops and markets.
1. Rock n’ Roll & Alternative Market
I was lucky enough to go to an amazing market in Sydney with vintage cars and music and fashion. It was up by the Sydney University and it was $2 to get in but so worth it! There was live bands playing and a big food court and loads of vintage clothing stalls and a retro barbers and much more. I managed to get some photos as well while I was there to show on here!

2. Vintage & Thrift Shops
Chapel Street Bazar
Honestly this is the biggest vintage shop I have ever seen, it has everything you could think of inside and its like a maze, but there are some brilliant finds and some of the clothes they have are beautiful.
This is a much smaller shop but with mostly clothes and accessories but there is some amazing pieces in there, defiantly worth checking out.
In general Chapel Street is the best place to go for shopping in Melbourne, there are some really lovely boutique style shops, second hand vintage stores and pop up shops, its great.
Paddys Market – Sydney
Paddys is a very typical market, there are stalls for everything – electronics, children’s toys, incense, fancy dress costumes, art, it was great and among the vast variety were some really great clothing stalls so its defiantly worth checking out, and its under an outlet mall so theres a bargin to be found upstairs too.
Queen Vic Market – Melbourne
The Queen Vic Market is similar to Paddys a few great clothing stalls in amongst a load of typical market stalls BUT the food there is great. Rows upon rows of fresh fruit and veg, cheese, wine, meat, fresh yogurt, smoothies, cakes and chocolates. It was incredible and I am a massive foodie so I was in heaven.

Crown Street Market – Sydney
The Crown street market is great, we stumbled upon this as we were walking to the city as our hotel was on crown street. Its a great little market with a great variety of vintage and second hand clothing stands. I got an amazing grey pure wool coat for just $10 which is so cheap. I need to alter the hem a little because its too long but I will post pictures when its done!
