Rag and Bone Vintage & Retro

Published June 4th 2012
Great news vintage and retro fans, there's a new kid in town! Rag and Bone opened its doors 2 weeks ago, right in the heart of West End at 93 Vulture St (where the tailors used to be, near the Indian Kitchen).

Rag and Bone shopfront


It's a gorgeous little store decked out in classic vintage and retro style. Owner and self confessed hoarder Melissa, admits the stock comes largely from her own collection. More retro than vintage, wares include shoes, belts, jewellery, women's fashion and a whole wall of Menswear.

Menswear wall


Melissa describes her stock as 'on trend', meaning she tries to sell things that people want to wear right now, so don't expect to find too many 1970's bridesmaids dresses or the like, that aren't really wearable. Considering the high profile location and the associated rent, one might expect the prices to be on the high side but I was pleasantly surprised; very reasonable, similar I guess to the op shops that now 'specialise' in vintage and retro fashions.

Melissa, the owner


They don't have a website or online presence as yet, but Melissa is working on it. In the meantime, the best way to check it out is to head down there and take a look. And while you're visiting, why not try one of the best coffees in West End?
