You can't beat a good rummage through vintage and industrial knick knacks on a lazy Saturday afternoon, can you? Trouble is, the good stuff gets snapped up too quickly in this city - Melburnians just have SUCH good taste (!!), it's almost impossible to find a bargain anymore. That's why you have to plan a day trip to The Vintage Shed in Tyabb!
The Vintage Shed is lovingly run by husband and wife team Jodee and Tim Goddard, who set up shop with just 5 stall holders only a year ago, and have already grown to 60 store holders! Wowsers! No sign of economic downturn on the Mornington Peninsula, clearly!
The Vintage Shed is essentially a huge warehouse of Vintage stuff from the early 1900s through to the 1980s, all from individual dealers selling under one roof. Have a look at the pics on their website and you'll get a better idea of the immense amount of stock we are talking about! ALSO 'The Vintage Emporium' section has an extensive vintage clothing range, full of amazing designer clothing to rival what you'd find in many city vintage stores.
The Vintage Shed also hosts the local Farmers Market on the 3rd Saturday of every month - the next one scheduled this coming Saturday! With a sunny 27 degree day forecast, I really can't think of any excuse not to bundle up your boyfriend / housemate / kids and head down for a day of vintage fossicking and fish 'n chips on the beach!
