Hot in this week is our amazing window display from my currator partner and featuring a metal red ladder and shelves in a reversable timber.
This is the second ladder we have created and they are so popular as great for shops,bookcases and a wall feature and solid with that sought after rusted charm.
Also lots of globes and many ages and styles...the perfect gift for men and women and ideal as a travel gift. So poular and a visaul treat in the window.
From timber distressed cupboards to pre loved boxer boots to enamel signs to union jack cushions we at Nook Vintage like to diversify and stand alone in a world of followers.
So if you are reading this and have never been in let us tickle your tastebuds and be excited as from each day there is always something new to look at.
Open daily with a smile !!

There are some fabulous vintage pieces in our pigeon holes at the moment and so if you have missed a few weeks pop in as open daily.
We have 1920s original flapper girl shoes ,beaded 1950s shoes, worn in leather cowboy boots and Frye tan boots, lots of lovely leather bags in pre loved condition, hats in all shapes and sizes and select books to make you laugh out loud !!
Sizes are one off so its the Cinderella effect in here but you never know your luck !
So don"t drool any longer make a visit and see what all the fuss is about !!
In our store we love the company of men and so have structured the store to accomodate them by setting up a corner area full of great vintage boots, broques and desert boots with satchels,luggage and accessories thrown in.
Also we have a guys cabinet too full of gentlemens baubles !!
So guys pop in for all your essentials and we welcome you
Lots of new frocks just in and amazing styles from across the globe so something different Melbournians
A real mix from the 50s to the 80s and quirky colours like mustards, tangerines, and of course the essential black.
I am really focussing on moving some summer stock now so if it is not already reduced then ask me and I will be sure to do a deal for you.
New seoson as priced and do not forget Monday and Tuesday are student days at Nook Vintage so bag a bargain on those days with a 20% discount
Just in for the new seoson are these three quarter Japanese vintage kimonos in amazing hues and also the classic black. Last year whilst in Brick Lane in the heart of the East End of London all the cool somebodys were wearing kimonos with skinny jeans and looked fantastic.
So Melbourne I think this look is going to go off this year but we at Nook Vintage have been happily selling vintage kimonos from day one.
They look fantastic as an alternative to a jacket, throw over a tee and then mix in with basics like jeans or over a classic LBD
Every kimono is quite different and a one off piece so hurry in now and see the range.
This message is for all our followers and anyone who has supported us on our exciting journey.... should be WE LOVE YOU but enough of all the mushy stuff and back to the point and there is one !!
Nook Vintage now sell scrabble letters and rests so you can spell out your love or hate (great for inner stress) or any other word you like.
A great innovative idea that we stole of our dear friend Orli ( I love you too) and ideal for the people out there like me that cannot get the words out sometimes !!! hahaha only kidding !!
So come and be creative in store and buy a little something different and they make a great gift. Start from $1 per piece so a good affordable piece of art.
LOVE YOU ALL SERIOUSLY
We at Nook Vintage are so excited as our wonderful oregan work bench has arrived and it is one of the best we have sourced.
From the depths of the country this handsome brute is solid and a ideal shop counter, dining table or feature table in a open plan home.
Marrys well with our timber recycled benches on either side or mix up the look with our olive vinyl and metal chairs .
Priced competitively and a real show stopper be first to see this piece.
1750 x 740 in dimensions and bring a set of muscles as this is heavy to move !!
Be quick as Nook Vintage does get known as one of the best places to buy vintage boots apparently but thats only what we heard on the grapevine!!
We will take that compliment and hope we do not disapoint you.

Ok so we may seem arrogant, loud, in your face and ultra confident but heh when your in Fitzroys most competitive area you have to be all those traits and more. So to all the people out there we say STARE and look and then come on in as once you meet us you will be happily surprised !!
Stare at our window as it changes regularly and always has a theme which we hope you like
Stare through when we are closed and call our mobile and find out more (only at respectable hours mind you)
Stare at our blog and find something different for you,the home,the kids and the partner
Stare hard as I think you will be seeing more of our crazy antics in the future !!
So go on STARE
See the lights of yesteryear here at Nook Vintage as deco is our favourite era and this theatre light on a wooden tripod ticks all the boxes.
Amazing in design from the States and beautifully constructed and gives off a great beam so ideal for a secluded book corner or a giant warehouse where it would command more attention.
Can be adjusted and uses a 78mm bulb
Well priced as a piece of history and lighting is our new line that we will continue but this American Beauty is a true one off Decoesque treasure.
We have more coming but these are a few of our sought after hat blocks with stand and just the block.
Beautiful as is or pop on your best topper to keep it in shape.
Getting hard to find and very costly but we at Nook Vintage try and keep prices fair.
Expecting a few more this week so come in and see our range and make your favourite hat a statement piece.
Handsome old Remington typewriter in grand condition and a sought after item here at Nook Vintage.
Works well with all the keys perfect but the ribbon is in need of a change and now you can find the ribbons in Office Works so I have been told so thats brilliant.
Looks so regal on a mantel and of course great font when used.
Well priced and the only one I have instore right now.
We are "on a roll" with these two most sought after items as everyone asks me constantly where I got my paper holder from and can I get one !!
Well now I have listened and done what you have asked so where are you all ?
The brown paper is available from office works for a song and these old timber holders are found from the country with a little age but work perfectly.
For store holders to cafes to schools these historic items are rare to find and useful as well as looking amazing.
Be quick !!
This piece is so affordable and currently works well as a display for our current Pony Rider cushions and heh that sounds more glam than nappies right !!
Come see us daily
Around the world is our theme at Nook Vintage and we have the most fantastic range of globes in all shapes and sizes for the childrens room to the boardroom. Ages from the 1950s to the 1970s and all well priced.
The one in the photo is very deco styled and the most vibrant colours.
Come and learn your latitudes from your longtitudes and we can show you this instore now !!
Lovely old school Brogues in and very unisex style and big size so a must see for the new seoson. Gorge leather and great detailling and have a great shape for dresses or jeans.
My brogues walk out the door (God am I the queen of puns or what although none intended !!) so be first in as well priced and ready for the right foot but the left will do (sorry again but am drinking coffee and am bored !!)

Straight in from a long drive to the heart of the country comes this handsome oregon workbench with amazing patina and a great structure.
Ideal for a dining table, shop counter, office desk etc and is a classic piece that will stand the tests of time and great investment piece.
We have teamed the workbench with timber recycled benches and work well with that aesthetic but any indsutrial style chair also makes a great visual.
