Poison Arrow Retro is a treasure trove of unique and original Kustom Kulture fashion, homewares, accessories and kids wear in historic Nolans Corner on the edge of Ipswich CBD’s mall.
A must visit if in the Ipswich CBD and worth a trip to check out, this charming and quirky store is full of locally and Australian designed and made retro, hotrod and kooky clothing and wares as well as imports from the UK (Hell Bunny) USA and Belgium (Liquorbrand).
Here you’ll find polka dot Betty Boop style dresses, sailor frocks, pencil skirts, Hawaiian print sun dresses, leopard skin two-pieces, Hotrod T-shirts and jackets, tulle petticoats, headbands and cinch belts.
Poison Arrow also has a stunning collection of shoes including platform Mary Janes and peacock pumps (from Hot Chocolate), biker boots and Tuk Creepers as well as accessories like purses made from recycled cassette tapes and hand bags made from vinyl LPs.
Little folk can match their Kustom Kulture parents too, with a quirky range of romper suits, mini sun dresses, hotrod Tees and print-covered sneakers and Mary Janes, not to mention having the coolest Kustom lunch box at school.
Poison Arrow can custom make bags too, using supplied designs by customers – think gifts like a Kelly bag or shoes covered in children’s artworks.
There’s also some funky home furnishings that make great gifts like Route 66 cushions imported from the US.
Nice to know – Poison Arrow Retro opens late when there are events in the Ipswich CBD Mall.
