Vinnies

Paddington

What this store lacks in laundering it makes up for in atmosphere. Located in the heritage listed Foresters Hall which since its inception has been a venue for welfare provision in one guise or another, it is a well preserved example of a small 19th century hall.

Not so much a vintage store as an op shop there are nevertheless odd treasures to be unearthed within – 1950’s hats, tap shoes, evening gowns and original Levis for instance. Otherwise it’s laden from one end to the other with old crockery, wardrobes, seating, ornaments, jewellery and preloved clothing.

Take the narrow creaky steps from the entry vestibule up to the gallery overlooking the hall and here can be found evening wear and dress ups including a small mercifully cheap stash for children of masks, pirate vests and so forth. For non-sewing parents landed with a last minute themed party or school play a visit to this little hideaway may just be lifesaving.
