One of my favourite things to do on a rainy Sunday is to take a trip to The Mornington Antique Centre on Tyabb Road.
I call this place the 'Antique Warehouse', and is one of the biggest treasure troves I've ever been luckily enough to find, all 60,000 square feet of it.
One can easily spend half a day browsing rows upon rows of furniture, memorabilia, toys, trunks, second hand and vintage clothes, paintings, cameras, old knitting patterns..and you might even find an old vintage car for sale (which was of most interest to my son)
Many traders within the centre sell vintage clothing and accessories, with some selling fairly recent second hand clothing labels. Here are some snap shots:
The Mornington Antique Centre is constantly changing due to the regular cycle of goodies that come and go. It is hard to leave such a mass of second hand delights without a purchase. I bought nothing this time, but there are two treasures I am deliberating on, and may go back during the week to see if they are still there.
The Mornington Antique Centre has to be seen to be believed. Please check it out of you happen to be visiting Melbourne's South East Peninsula.
