Seaside Vintage Trail

Take a northern stroll while shopping for retro wares.

It's the ultimate trifecta: head near the shoreline, pair great views with some exercise, and do some buying and browsing as well. Welcome to the Seaside Vintage Trail, the Saturday stroll that combines all of the above.

Come 9am on October 14, Sandgate is the place to be to wander, sift through retro treasures, and stock up on pre-loved bits and pieces. Reloved Relics, Call Me Old Fashioned, Hello Duckie and Old Favourites are the stores getting in on the action, selling everything from antiques to clothes to homewares.

As you roam through the suburb's central business district, it's a choose-your-own-adventure kind of event. Here, the choice is yours. Where do you start? Where do you finish? What do you purchase? How long do you spend staring at the sea? How many cafes will you pop into along the way? Should you have ice cream because you're near the beach? Only you can decide. Treat yo'self to the latter, though, obviously.
