For vintage enthusiasts looking to create a space of their own, Dirty Janes Canberra should be their first port of call when visiting the Fyshwick industrial area. This is the second store from father-daughter duo Athol Salter and Jane Crowley, which opened in March 2020 as a continuation of Dirty Janes Bowral, their beloved Southern Highlands store. It was Athol who instilled in Jane a love of unique vintage pieces as a child, after opening Antiques Hall in the 1970s.

Dirty Janes Canberra is housed in a fully converted 21,500 square foot warehouse (2000 sqm), which was Fyshwick’s former Geological Survey building. Today, Dirty Janes houses in the main building 90 exhibitors who offer a magical array of new and recycled furniture, homewares, home accessories, fashion, art, clothing, jewelry, garden items, and vintage finishes.

In addition, the store has a pantry and tea room located in the front and an inviting outdoor space containing two small buildings, one housing a blacksmith shop and hobby farm, and the other a small cottage just waiting to be rented out for private events. The pantry and tea room offer “nostalgic meals,” according to operator Caleb Evans. They include bean, black pepper and smoked cheese waffles, a selection of toast, baguettes, salads, sandwiches, pies and pastries.

While it’s tucked away in Fyshwick, Dirty Janes is a destination location and a welcoming place where the little ones won’t have time to get bored while the older ones shop for antiques. It’s open 7 days a week and is buzzing on weekends, so visit during the week if you want a quieter experience. And half a day is not too much time to wander around this space in search of unusual objects.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
