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.

Old Favourites Sandgate

You’ll find tables, chairs, hutches and chest of drawers alongside a mix of old and new items for your home; from fragrant candles and kerosene lamps to soup tureens and teapots. There’s cane baskets, vintage scales, silverware and ceramic knobs.
