Preloved hot spots in Melbourne's South East
We're a bit spoiled for choice when it comes to shopping second hand in Melbourne compared to other cities and states. If you live in the South East or are visiting the area, here's a few good shopping spots to try.
Erstwhile Market Dubbed "Baysides's Newest Ol Place", it can be found at 12 Horscroft Place, Moorabbin. It's a lovely new market made up of stallholders who have varied and eclectic tastes and sell vintage, retro and handmade goods. They are also beginning to hold classes from the market in the near future.
Vinnies Moorabbin Such a beautiful bright and big new store, I'd especially recommend a shop here if you're looking for furniture and books, because of their size they have lots to choose from. They are open 7 days a week, Monday to Saturday 9am - 5pm and on Sundays from 10am - 4PM You can find all their stores on their website here.
