Mitchell Road Antique and Design Center

Sydney has a thriving community of antique lovers and vintage aficionados, and all can agree that one of the best places in the city for such enthusiasts – besides Rozelle Collectors Market, Surry Hills Market, and  Paddington Market – is the Mitchell Road Antique and Design Center. This huge warehouse covers more than 2000 square meters and over 70 different dealers are trading under this one substantial roof. It is the one-stop-shop for vintage lovers, antique collectors and anyone with a love of one of a kind, nostalgic items.

The owner of Mitchell Road Antique and Design Center has many decades of experience in the antiquing business, and stall holders are full of information about their wares and antiques in general. This makes for a lot of vintage knowledge all collected in one place, so is the perfect spot for conversations and questions. Vendors tend to mill about the store, rather than specifically man their booth, and will happily chat about anything that shoppers show an interest in. Because of this, the atmosphere is incredibly friendly, and it feels as though you are walking through a small antique-loving village rather than a shop.

Mitchell Road Antique and Design Center is the perfect place for collectors. It is very likely that there is something within the walls waiting to be added to that special collection, but if items do not happen to be in stock then vendors will go out of their way to source specifics. It is not just collectors that are catered for: amateurs simply seeking that unique item for their home will be spoiled for choice here too. It is also a popular location for professionals in the business of set design and prop sourcing, so many of the items have more than a few stories to tell.

Items found in Mitchell Road Antique and Design Center run the gambit from large pieces valued at thousands of dollars to smaller items more suited to all budgets. A little bit of everything can be found here; just be sure to allow at least a day to see everything.

Michael Peeler
"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."
