 HOT: Lost and Found Market, 12 Smith St, Collingwood

RM has been very patient with my new found penchant for retro lamps, so off I dragged him to Lost and Found Market. This indoor market is smaller than Chapel Street Bazaar but runs on the same idea – stall holders have a small space to display their secondhand wares, ranging from clothes, accessories, furniture, books and prints. Obviously you need to have the patience to trawl through a lot of stuff, but there were lots of treasures to be found. Kartell cabinets and stacking tables, old school desks, Planet lamps, and a red toy car all caught my eye, but luckily RM was much more practical than me and we didn’t end up buying anything, although I was sorely tempted by the pretty umbrella for $29 (as opposed to the body shirts for the same price).

  1. You have a totally fabulous blog! Would you be interested in seeing your work about local places syndicated on local news blogs? See Fitzroy for example. Many local bloggers are contributing. There’s no advertising and no exploitation of your content – just a convenient way for local people to read local news. To contribute please keep adding suburb categories, tags or labels to your posts, such as ‘Fitzroy’, ‘Brunswick’, etc. RSS feeds for these tags are created and added to the local news sites. You may find that syndication brings more traffic to your blog and more comments from readers!

  3. Great idea for the blog. I love the fringe array of things listed above. Some of them I had never heard of, so this was a real treat.

  4. Sounds like a good place to buy some awesome stuffs at a reasonable price. Do you know any other Lost and Found Market outlets available in other areas? I’m too far to Collingwood.
