BIG VINTAGE HAS PERMANENTLY CLOSED.
Located in a southside semi-industrial estate, Salisbury's little secret is Big Vintage.
Inside the Commerce Street warehouse, Big Vintage is a treasure trove of reclaimed, recycled and repurposed industrial furniture and vintage homewares sourced by owners Pat and Sally Lynch; from an old shipping dock in Sri Lanka to a general store in Dalby.
Full of surprises, you will find everything from Indian chapati rolling pins and Indonesian gongs with tassles to vintage Cuban movie posters and puka shell chandeliers; while seafaring fans will love the collection of nautical items from decommissioned ships such as life rings, ship lights and double faced clocks.
Next door to the showroom, Pat keeps busy in his workshop crafting cheese boards out of old railway sleepers, candle holders from ancient temple pillars and custom-made tables any size you want; with plenty of vintage metal chairs and stools to match.
With an espresso machine on-site, patrons can enjoy a well-brewed cup of Genovese coffee and sweet treat - lamingtons, blueberry coconut cake or red velvet melting moment - while wandering around the warehouse.
*Need to know: Big Vintage is available for hire for events such as hen's nights with Sally taking care of the catering or you can attend a cooking class at Big Vintage with Sally.
