OK so Melbourne clearly has no shortage of options if you’re in the market for vintage / industrial furniture and homewares, there is just SO much goodness on offer if you know where to look!  But I must say this recent find, opened just last month, is a bit of a hidden gem – well worth a visit before the masses catch on!

Rachel and Gary Lewarne, the lovely couple behind Nook Vintage in Fitzroy (I covered their cute little store way back here) have just opened up a brand new and seriously MASSIVE space in North Fitzroy.  270 metres of vintage / industrial goodness.  Awesome!

Nook Vintage Warehouse is hidden down a little laneway just behind Queens Parade (you know in that cute pocket between North Fitzroy and Clifton Hill).   It’s chock to the rafters with amazing finds – rustic vintage benches, tables, lockers, shelving and drawer units, antique flags and pennants, shop fittings and mannequins, trunks and suitcases, masses of industrial pendant lamps (the real vintage ones!) and much more.  The prices are refreshingly reasonable – and local hospitality peeps will be pleased to find lots of pieces (especially vintage chairs) in multiples!

It must be said that another major drawcard for this local business is the fact that Rachel and Gary are just so genuinely friendly and helpful – they go out of their way to assist, and deliver locally at no extra cost.  And really, you’ve got to love a shop owner who puts their mobile number on their website - now that’s customer service!

Stylists will be pleased to learn that most of the Nook Vintage collection is available to hire, as is this amazing industrial space (a local band shot their album cover here just last week!)

Nook Vintage Warehouse is open weekends or by appointment (and their Fitzroy store in Johnston is still open 7 days). Pop down and say hello – you won’t be disappointed!

    There’s also a fantastic vintage warehouse on kororoit creek road, in williamstown north. You should check that one out too. Can’t remember the name though.

    Love this space. I picked up a cute table on the weekend for my shop. It is located right behind my store in Queens parade. Dangerous! Think I may be a frequent visitor.
