Inside How Bazzar

How Bazaar is a very appropriate name for this shop as you will see things and wonder what they were ever used for and the words 'how bizarre' may roll off the tongue. I am not saying this place is bad, actually far from it.

Small bottles in cabinet

You will find so many interesting items that you may have once seen, either at an old petrol station in a country town , or toys you or your parents had as child, along with many things in-between.

The vintage and retro advertising signs are amazing, I have never seen so many old (and extremely collectable) Shell, Good Year and many other signs at any other vintage/antique store around Victoria.

Out the front

The amount of stuff to look through here can be overwhelming. It starts in the car park with Disney characters on the side of a container, surf boards on the veranda, full size horse with saddle, a Doctor Who phone box at the other end of the veranda with a cockpit of an aeroplane below it. How bizarre you're probably thinking!

Bicycle ?

Step in side and the feeling you get is like a kid in a lolly shop, so much cool stuff to choose from and so many fond memories come flooding back when you see this stuff.

A Vespa maybe?

Whether you're after records, vases, vintage advertising, a rustic farm house table, antique and vintage bottles, military items, toys or even a vespa, you can find it here.

As far the pricing goes, these guys know what things are worth so don't expect a bargain, however, there is always room for negotiation and if you really want something, then you may have to grin and bear it because many of these items are becoming much harder to find and also quite fashionable with interior designers so all these things push the prices up.

Dr Who phone box

So next time you're in the area, drop by have a look and take a stroll down memory lane, you never know what you will find.

P.S if you can't get to the shop, they have a great website with most items listed.

Happy shopping.

It looks like a museum - not a shop!

Any Doctor Who fan with enough spare cash is going to be in heaven. Do you know if it is an original or just a replica?
