Satchel Overload !!

Here at Nook Vintage we have just scored the most amazing statch of old vintage satchels and messenger bags with a few rare tram bags thrown in .
Having waited months to find these sought after items we find an abundance (believe in the law of attraction I say as it works !)
They are a great range of leathers and colours all in various conditions but brilliant for the hard to find person at Christmas as who would not love one of these for men and women.
Be quick as they will go fast

Christmas Window Award

If there was an award for the best Christmas window in Fitzroy then I think we at Nook Vintage would walk out with it.
It is a mass of amazing one off pieces with a child like fusion emphasizing our insane and kitsch personalities perfectly !!
From flying squirrels to ride me ducks we have captured enchantment for the kids and the bigger kids amongst us.
Cars have almost collided on Johnston just to get a gueney at our latest offering and this Christmas as it is our first we have pulled out all the stops to bring you something special.
Everything is tactile so you can touch, play and maybe not ride (sorry the duck is a bit precious) on most items and the tram roll on the wall plus the green distressed patina pigeon holes are all for sale.
So pop in or window shop and let us get your Christmas all sorted in our one shop stop. Its a wrap !!

I want I want I want !!! The christmas list for Nook Vintage is growing and these are top of our list for the most gorge slippers in town.
Some have red toadstalls on, some roses and some simple embelishments but all are pure wool and made in Nepal and so unique.
Be first to own a pair as we here at Nook have sourced these for you and like to be the only one with them in the area.
Snuggle up on Christmas day and relax and these babies will warm not only your tooties but your heart as the profits go towards the Nepalese community.

Tit for Tat

Tilt this tit for tat (hat for the un- english amongst you) and be a real dapper gent in this stylish top hat made in the 20s in London where else !!
For hire and for sale keep a few hundred saved but you are buying a rare piece of history and it is in ok condition but the battered patina gives it that artful dodger look that is commands. After all not much that survived the 1920s would look that great right !!
So team it up with your whistle and flute (suit-get it !) and bobs your uncle (not sure on this one)
In the window as we speak and not much stays there for long....hurry in .

Boot Frenzy

These designer boots are the bomb and are in immaculate condition and size 7 to 8. Rarely do I get this excited about a vintage find but these are breathtaking and in the old school style with the great toe and stubby heel.
They will not hang round long and look ideal with the floral summer dress .
Made by Giorgio Armani these are a made with love and skill.
If only I had smaller feet they would be hiden away from the world but alas it was not too be ....sob
