Woolloongabba Antique Centre
22 Wellington St
A relative newcomer in the olde world stakes, the owners Sarah Jane Walsh and Megan Rizzo have used this to make a point of difference from other antique centres.
Located in a revamped saw toothed factory on the outskirts of the Woolloongabba Antique precinct, the inside has been cleaned up to create a bright aircon industrial 1500 square metre space without a hint of mustiness or dustiness.
Incorporated is a fabulous retro 1950’s café, all vinyl and formica, entertainment comes in the form of jazz trio the Butter Brothers on weekends while in a far flung corner you can sit on a row of 1940’s theatre seats and watch the non-stop silent movies playing on the screen.
The emphasis is on Australian and French antiques as well as glamour vintage clothes and accessories, toys from the pre-electronic age and a range of inter war and post war wares and pieces of furniture.
