Launceston is the second largest city in Tasmania and the third oldest in Australia. As you might expect from such an introduction, it is known for its historic buildings and heritage. Antiques are a common passion in this city and antique hunters and avid collectors are guaranteed to find something unique, intriguing and worth taking home with each visit to this wonderful city.
Many of Launceston's antique shops are clustered in just a block or two in the city center. However, it is worth walking a little further out to find more gems. Tulloch's Auction, also known as Tasmania's favorite auction house, collects memorabilia from all over the world in a variety of styles and eras, and a visit to one of their auctions is a must. They hold auctions twice a year, so you need to keep an eye on their announcements to make sure you do not miss out. Red Fox Antiques is not too far from Tulloch's and this store has a nice mix of interesting vintage and antique pieces, with incredibly helpful staff to help you on your treasure hunt.
Those in Launceston with an interest in watches should head straight to Clockwise. It is a haven for those looking for antique wristwatches, pocket watches and clocks of all shapes and sizes. Seven Sisters Antiques is another lovely shop with smaller antiques, all of high quality. Armitage Auctions always has a great atmosphere and the staff inside are friendly and helpful. They have an auction every two weeks and are guaranteed to be a fun way to find your next antique or collectible. Owl Antiques and Collectibles has a diverse range of beautiful collectibles with a particular focus on music related items.
Launceston is a real shopping delight for antique lovers and collectors. With so many quality shops in such close proximity, it can feel more like an antique market than a city!
