 HOT: Thread Den Market, Lithuanian Club, 44 Errol St, North Melbourne

I LOVE markets. I will even travel across town for an hour on public transport on a Sunday morning to get to a market if it’s being organised by the lovely ladies of Thread Den.

I’ve written about sewing lounge Thread Den before, and they’ve now have expanded their little empire to encompass an occasional craft and vintage market. They recently organised their second market and it looked like such a roaring success that I suspect that there will be more coming.

On offer in the labyrinth rooms of the Lithuanian Club was a community of crafters and vintage collectors selling all sorts of desirable things. My picks:

Handmade toys and vintage children’s clothes from Nettle and Brier. I absolutely fell in love with this adorable sailor’s dress ($20) and Red Riding Hood coat ($30) that I HAD to have them – now I have to find a 3 year old girl to give them to. (Don’t worry, I’m not that crazy – my god-daughter is three).

If only my Dad hadn’t cleared out his youthful wardrobe – I could have been selling his polyester flares for $5 each.

  1. Oooh, I was here too! Picked up some bits and bobs and a brownie (very important obviously). Did you get the e-mail about the Thread Den ‘secret’ sale? You have to say ‘jamboree’ in conversation to get a 20% discount!

    • Hi Vee

      What kind of bits and bobs did you find at the markets?

      Thanks, I did receive an email about the 20% off sale. I was hoping to pick up another Oh Bluebird dress but unfortunately the designer (and Thread Den co-owner) Kylie is not doing any sewing for the moment as Thread Den keeps her too busy.
