Smith Street Vintage Trail
The inner north's famed vintage strip is hosting a weekend of retro fashion, entertainment and other fun.
If your wardrobe is looking a little tired and you're well overdue for a vintage shopping session, then Melbourne, this weekend is your time to shine. From 10am–4pm on Saturday, April 17, and Sunday, April 18, a group of the inner north's best-loved vintage and retro stores are joining forces for a huge celebration of pre-loved wares. Meet the Smith Street Vintage Trail.
Dotted along the Smith Street strip, you'll find traders throwing open their doors for some great shopping, lively tunes and other activities. Sally's Retro Fashion is running mini styling sessions, Monkey Jar will host a runway show dedicated to retro threads and sequins, and Shappere Vintage Clothing is handing out free drinks and discounts.
Nearby, Recycled Delightful has planned a vintage market and treasure hunt, while Memorabilia on Smith is set to host a garage sale, complete with giveaways for the kids. And at Plug Seven Records, you'll be able to shop new and pre-loved vinyl while enjoying live tunes courtesy of The Psychedelic Freaks.
More entertainment will be dished up by the likes of Jack Lynch and What The Funk Brass Band, plus there'll be plenty of slick vintage cars to check out, too.
