Thrifting and vintage shopping is fast becoming the best way to score pre-loved treasures and retro gems. Here’s our run-down of the best places to shop ’til you drop around Perth and beyond.

Lucy in Disguise

Lucy in Disguise is tucked into a small laneway on Subiaco’s Rokeby Road. Since its opening in 2008, the store has become renowned for its local and international collection of vintage fashion. The boutique stocks fashion from throughout the 20th century, with a special emphasis on harder-to-find garments from the earlier decades of the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s. In their current collection, you will find 70’s dresses, 80’s jumpsuits and vintage wedding dresses, and an eclectic variety of records, cassettes and accessories. The boutique also offers costume hire in their decade-inspired fancy dress shop, and an amazing collection of go-go boots for the fashion-forward.

Fi & Co

Northbridge

Fiona Hiew opened Fi & Co after travelling overseas and finding vintage pieces unlike anything found in Perth. The garments are curated from across Europe, Asia and beyond, with each piece containing a unique history and character. Fiona values old-world craftsmanship and strong designs, and you will find a distinctly haute couture collection in the boutique. Look out for high-end brands such as Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Moschino and Dolce and Gabbana. If you are looking for an ethical gift, the store also stocks local and handmade products including soy candles, natural soaps and jewellery.

Vinnies Retro

Northbridge

Specialising in retro and vintage wares, Vinnies in Northbridge combines the traditional ‘treasure hunt’ feeling of thrift shopping with a charming retro feel. Specialising in vintage and retro style fashion and donating profits to St Vincent de Paul Society (which helps support housing and people experiencing homelessness, Indigenous causes, and much more) – this store has new items arriving daily. With an extensive range for both men and women, and plenty of accessories to choose from, this store is a must-visit for vintage fashion lovers looking for pieces that won’t break the bank and contribute to a good cause too. If you’re looking for a fashion adventure with friends, Vinnies also offers a private shopping experience where you can shop uninterrupted after hours.
