How Bazaar Antiques and Collectibles is spread over roughly 3000 square feet and is found in Colac, Australia. The owners have long been passionate about all things old, unique, and collectible, and have been buying and selling since the 90s. Their huge store has been catering to antique and collecting enthusiasts since 2006 with the majority of that time being located in Geelong. In 2019, the store moved to its present location. Thanks to the move, it was able to grow a little in size and stock many more curious antique and vintage items for shoppers to admire.

The building that houses How Bazaar Antiques and Collectibles has been in use in one way or another since 1952. In the past it has been used as a factory, workshop, and storage space. It enjoyed a wonderful makeover to become How Bazaar, which can not be missed now with its vibrant purple paint job! It sits directly on the main road, and thanks to its location in western Victoria’s stunning tourist region, it enjoys plenty of passing traffic, many of which make an impromptu stop to check out the exciting items here.

Though the owners of How Bazaar Antiques and Collectibles are passionate about their trade and source a lot of their goods personally, they also set aside space in their store for independent traders to set up their stalls and sell their wares. This means that visitors to this store are treated to a wide and varied range of different vintage and antique collectibles. Shoppers can expect to find all kinds of road signs, items of furniture, lamps and lighting fixtures, vintage toy cars, old petrol pumps, model aircraft, suitcases, typewriters, chinaware, sewing machines, bicycles, and a whole lot more.

How Bazaar Antiques and Collectibles is the kind of store where you need to spend some time and get prepared to rummage. There are so many items crammed in and displayed on every possible square inch of space, it will take some time to be sure you see everything. If you are searching for something specific though, you can always ask for directions from the owners. Amazingly, they know where everything is!

"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."
