While there’s plenty of sights to visit in the Blue Mountains, you can’t leave without popping into a few of the vintage and antique stores. Many of our guests find they end up coming away with more than one or two things, and always make a return visit next time they are in the mountains.
We sat down and made a list of five must visit vintage and antique stores that you must visit while staying in the Blue Mountains.
One of the largest antique dealers west of Sydney, the Victory Theatre represents 50 dealers right here in the Blue Mountains. Over two floors you’ll find books, jewellery, vintage clothing, toys, furniture, china, ornaments, art and more. There’s also an art gallery on-site, and make sure you check out the beautiful work done by Blackheath Jewellery.
The Victory Theatre was built in 1915 and was originally called Neate’s Hall. It was renamed the Arcadia Picture Palace in 1921 when it opened as a 999 seat cinema. There’s certainly some history in this building!
Stop in for lunch or a coffee in the cafes, and take a look around.
If you’re after men’s or women’s vintage fashion, vintage inspired fashion and accessories, make a stop at Leura Vintage. You’ll find vintage dresses, tops, suits, gloves, scarves, homewares and much more.
Located in Leura, this is the perfect place to find something to wear if you love vintage fashion.
With everything antique, vintage and retro, a visit to Peachtree Antiques is the place to visit when you’re looking for furniture, collectables and rare pieces.
Just a 10 minute walk from The Gatsby in Katoomba, there are some amazing pieces. Perfect for that one of a kind gift, take a stroll to Peachtree Antiques and see what you can find.
Mr Pickwicks Fine Old Books
If you’re a book lover than Mr Pickwicks is the place for you. With over 60,000 books, Mr Pickwicks sits within the former Westpac building in Katoomba.
Along with books, you’ll find a collection of fine Australian art, rare and exotic collectables and antiques.
Rotate Interiors is where you’ll find all your antique furniture and collectable needs. With three rooms, it’s well worth visiting the store in Wentworth Falls. You’ll find fine antique furniture and furnishings to take home with you.
This is a great place to find some interesting pieces, and some unique gifts.
