Dirty Janes Bowral

You'll find something unusual with every trip to this mega marketplace.

Of Bowral's many boutiques and specialty stores, Dirty Janes has to be the best known. The expansive antique market is an emporium of retailers, from vintage sellers to plant purveyors, and you could easily lose a couple of hours exploring each one at a leisurely pace.

The family-run business underwent a major renovation in 2016, which saw its original emporium linked up with neighbouring cafes and bars so that you can sit and admire the antiques over a glass of pinot before loading up the car with unique, yesteryear gifts.

Spread out over 1600 square metres, the indoor market is the largest in the Southern Highlands — and it's so popular that the owners are opening a second outlet in Canberra in 2020.

At the Bowral location, you'll find an eclectic mix of homewares and antiques — from vintage cameras and fur coats to oak dining tables and brass doorknobs. It's become a landmark shopping destination that's worth a stickybeak on every trip to the Southern Highlands.
