Old Favourites


Old Favourites is a gorgeous vintage shop found in a hundred year old tin shed in the seaside suburb of Sandgate.

Next door to Wired Owl Coffee on Rainbow Street, this shabby chic shop is full of vintage furniture - transformed into new treasures by owner Rachel McGregor – and beautiful homewares.
