Ooh, I’m so excited to introduce you to my latest vintage obsession, Retro Village! Open every Thursday to Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm (ish – it’s part of the charm), you will find the lovely Grace. She will embrace you with her sunny charm and passion for retro and vintage.
Located at 776 Darling Street, Rozelle, the shop is the former bottle shop for the Garry Owen Hotel. If you get thirsty whilst shopping, you can always pop next door for a refreshing ale!
Retro Village Rozelle | fabulous fashion
You know I love to shop local. Well, Retro Village is so local that it is about a three minute walk from my house. Retro Village is stocked to the gunwales with genuine vintage fashion, jewellery, hats, bags, shoes and even homewares.
But wait … there’s more. Retro Village also have a range of dresses made from vintage fabrics to vintage-esque designs but cut for the modern figure. You know, girls without teensy little waists. Or as I like to call it, hourglass figures with a little too much sand in the middle!
Recently, I popped in to say hello to the newest vintage store on the Balmain Peninsula, and left an hour later with a 50s day dress, a 60s linen shift, a 70s maxi, an 80s quilted chain handled clutch, and a vintage necklace of sheer gorgeousness. On the way out, I fell in love with a 50s straw hat and added that to my haul.
