Where To Go For Homewares in Melbourne

Where To Go For Homewares in Melbourne

| On 23, May 2015

If you’re looking for some new items to spruce up your place and after pieces that will set you apart from everyone else, there are a myriad of stores in Melbourne to satisfy your needs. I’ve rounded up four of my personal favourites, where you’re sure to find something to tickle your fancy.

Lost and Found Market

Lost and Found Market, East Brunswick
If you’re after some truly unique pieces, then the Lost and Found Market in East Brunswick should be your first stop. To sell there, your pieces have to be either vintage (from the 1940s to the 1990s) or a collectible of some sort. With independent sellers taking over the East Brunswick warehouse every Saturday and Sunday, there’s plenty on offer.

The sellers are constantly changing, with new stallholders coming in to have a go selling their wares quite frequently, so there’s always something new to check out. If you’re after a really unique item to add some quirk to your house, spend a few hours on a Sunday rifling through all the goods at these markets and you’re bound to find something to take home with you.

511 Lygon Street, East Brunswick
Open Saturday – Sunday, 10:00am – 6:00pm
Check out their website for more information.

 Lunar

Lunar Store, Prahran
It may only be a small store, but Lunar Store in Prahran has a lot to offer. Supporting independent and largely local designers, this shop has some beautifully curated items, with pieces you’ll be hard pressed to find elsewhere. The store cycles through items fairly frequently, so there’s always new stuff to choose from. Some of the highlights are the exquisitely crafted ceramics and the often-hilarious poster range.

Not only selling homewares, Lunar Store also offers a small range of clothing, and some charming pieces of jewellery and accessories that are worth checking out. As everything is independently designed, you can pretty much guarantee that no one else you know will have the same piece as you.

136 Greville Street, Prahran
Open Monday – Wednesday, 11:00am – 5:00pm, Thursday – Friday, 10:00am – 6:00pm, Saturday, 10:00am – 5:00pm, Sunday, 11:00am to 4:00pm.

Scout House, St Kilda
If you’ve got a bit of extra money or are after some investment pieces for your home, then Scout House is where you’ll want to be. Exclusively selling homewares, Scout’s range has been expertly curated by a former designer, with the focus being on items that can be treasured, are intrinsic to design, or are directly sourced from other designers.

Modelled after furniture and homeware stores in Europe, the US, and South America, Scout sets the precedent high for homewares. The range is beautiful, and whilst a bit pricier than some of the other places on this list, you’ll certainly get more bang for your buck.

161A Fitzroy Street, St Kilda
Open Monday – Sunday, 10:00am – 5:00pm
Check out their website for more information.

 Rose Street

Rose Street Market, Fitzroy
In the heart of Fitzroy, the Rose Street Market comes to life every Saturday and Sunday. Bringing together up to 70 different designers every week, the market’s backdrop of a former junkyard serves to only highlight the treasures you can find at these markets.

Based on similar projects around the world, these markets serve to highlight some of the best designing talent in Melbourne. Selling homewares and knick knacks, the markets also stock a range of jewellery, clothes, and collectables, so much so that you’re always going to find something to leave with. Its location makes it perfect for a weekend stroll after brunch, and even if you don’t head there with an idea in mind, you’re sure to find some finishing touches to your home.

60 Rose Street, Fitzroy
