Mitchell Road Antiques
This place is as much a museum as it is an antiques store. Mitchell Road Antiques is just a short stroll from Green Square Station (and actually on Bourke Road, despite its name). Stepping into the warehouse easily feels like walking head-first into a Narnia-like world celebrating the quirky and nostalgic. “We try very hard to be quite diverse when it comes to what we have on offer, covering many eras and styles including antiques, industrial, mid-century and retro,” Lyn, the manager, says. It’s worth dedicating an hour or two to exploring as much of the (very Instagram-worthy) space as possible; among the array of antique furnishings and brilliant neon lights and signs it can be easy to overlook the hidden treasures and oddities buried among them, be it vintage bags, antique medicine bottles, tin toys and more.
