Posted on August 7, 2014


It’s been a chilly winter for antique and vintage collectors, with snow coming to some parts of the Victorian Goldfields, but Nolan Street shops are warm and colourful, filled with collectibles of all kinds, for every kind of buyer.  Recent trends showing up are vintage framed pictures, teacups and saucers, teapots, ornaments and lovely Australian pottery ware.   Amaroo Antiques & Art have a lovely range in all these categories, pictured below, including an excellent collection of vintage light fittings and very collectible kitchenalia.  Deco era items in Bakelite and china are mainstays there, and their lovely shop is made to linger in, filled with treasures.  Expert friendly service and advice on valuations is always at hand, too!  Makes a trip to the country for the day or weekend worthwhile.  See below for address and contact details…

Wear J’a Get That? is bursting with colour and style, and enough glamour to ward off the chills of any dull winter’s day.  Mandy Tranter loves Cyndi Lauper and her shop window is inspired by the “look” of this very creative and trendsetting artist!  See pictures below for ideas and fabulous colour.  Mandy stocks vintage clothing and accessories for women mostly, and some styles for men.  Decorator items feature, too.  Her showcases are amazing to look through, lots of collectibles and very quirky items feature.  Ask her about how to put a sensational look together, because she has a flair for design and display.  Small pieces of furniture can be bought here too, so it’s easy to get the total effect of living a collector lifestyle, which so many people are embracing now.  See below for location and address details…

In addition to these great Nolan Street shops, also look for arcades in the same street, full of stallholders with great stock to browse and buy, and each end has antique and vintage style stores to visit.  A country drive to the Victorian Goldfields town of Maryborough is well worth it!
