Paddington's Vintage Shopping Trail

The charming historic inner suburb of Paddington is Brisbane's mecca for vintage, retro and op shopping with 10 fantastic shops in walking distance of each other.

Take the trail starting from Given Terrace and all the way along Latrobe Terrace (with a detour to Rosalie Village) and spend a day hunting for treasures, with plenty of cool cafes for a stop along the way:

Start the treasure hunt on Given Terrace, where tucked away upstairs in a 1980's commercial centre you'll find Encore La Chance,  designer consignment store where you could pick up anything from an Oroton 80's handbag to Miu Miu shoes or a 90's evening gown.

Paddington's new op shop is filled with designer labels at bargain prices - and you'll be supporting a great cause
Retro Metro, one of Brisbane's best vintage and retro shops lives underneath an old weatherbeaten Queenslander

This quirky boutique stocks a mix of preloved designer brands and vintage finds, from coats and frocks to shoes and bags 

What this store lacks in laundering it makes up for in atmosphere.

An old Queensland cottage with polished timber floors has been converted into Brisbane's most stylish op shop 

Barbarella's Vintage is a tiny secret underground treasure trove of vintage fashion and wares

Occupying the front rooms of a charming Paddington cottage (that has Barbarella Vintage underneath) is this fantastic shop of quality pre-loved fashion

The original granddaddy of antique emporiums has been operating from under the blue starry ceiling of the old Plaza Theatre
This virtual Aladdin's cave of new and secondhand vinyl records occupies an historic Paddington store
If a department store and an op shop had a baby this’d be it
