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 !!

The colour makes the boots stand out in the crowd and give the wow factor to an already classic mod style. The boots are priced at $75.

Wow is this a rare find !!! This baby is an old Adelaide bus roll that is full charm of yesteryear with a great worn finish.
Very industrial and perfect for a shop or a warehouse.
