If you love the thrill of a one-of-a-kind find, riffling through vintage vinyl and scoring an op-shop bargain, the Valley is a thrift-shop paradise for savvy shoppers. Here’s where to go shopping for second-hand gear, retro furniture and vintage fashion in the Valley.

Monty’s Pawnbrokers

Whether you’re after estate jewellery or vintage collectables, Monty’s Pawnbrokers is your one-stop op shop. Spanning classic Rolex watches to antique cameras, porcelain collectable figurines and even 1950s guitars, Monty’s has been servicing the Valley for more than 140 years, so it’s practically a vintage find itself! 

Red Cross Shop

For pre-loved and new clothing, accessories and homewares, head to the Red Cross Shop in McWhirters. This branch-operated store is staffed by volunteers in order to fundraise for Australian Red Cross within the local community. You can also donate any good-quality clothing, accessories and books direct to the Valley Red Cross Shop. 

Valley Laneway Markets

Don’t forget the Valley Laneway Markets on the first Saturday of every month. Here, you’ll find a curated collection of vintage fashion and accessories amid the treasure trove of crafty artisan wares.
