Yup, everybody loves vintage; it’s consuming Perth. Which makes the task of tracking down highly coveted retro must-haves just a little trickier. The good folks at Bluebird Vintage have done the hard work for you, sourcing kitsch collectables, fashion, retro homewares and all manner of vintage goodness from around the globe and cramming it into a tiny one-stop-shop for all your vintage needs. Within it’s awesomely wallpapered walls you’ll find intriguing cabinets of curios and costume jewelry, a huge range of Polaroid cameras, seriously pretty dresses and more accessories than you can poke a secondhand stick at.
Being tucked away on Cambridge St in Wembley, a detour from it’s more fashionable neighbours Subiaco and Leederville, means easy parking, peaceful browsing, reasonable prices and a pretty unique shopping experience all round. Especially when owner Deb is on hand to espouse the artistic merits of Tretchikoff prints, or warn against the sheer folly of double denim. So stroll in for a set of pastel tiki mugs and saunter out with a gorgeous 1950s seersucker day dress and a 90210 Brandon Walsh doll as well. Plus, it’s just a skip away from the Stanley bar and Flipside Burgers. And let’s face it, you can’t beat burgers, Brandon Walsh and Bluebird. Top of the vintage pecking order! Claire.
