I Love Vintage

I love vintage. Vintage clothing and Vintage Homewares. So I was delighted yesterday when my dear friend Eloise took me to L'ermitage vintage clothing shop in Glebe. A lovely collection of cheap and cheerful finds jam packed into a teeny weeny store on Glebe Point Road. (It turns out Clipper Cafe is not the only good thing about Glebe). I especially love the little retro kitchenette on show in the hidden away back room.

Eloise bought this delightful swing coat for a sunny 45AUD. Don't you love the tag! I also spied a tag of the name of 'Honky Tonk'! Cute!

And just down the road at The Salvation Army I picked up a flirty floral frock complete with lace peter pan collar (see top) for 10AUD. Minus the shoulder pads and about 30cm off the hem and I will have myself my new favourite dress! Yay! Tanoshiminishiteimasu!


L'ermitage is at 243 Glebe Point Road, Glebe. Fancy a chat? Call on +612 9660 5958
Do pop on over - and be sure to stop in to Clipper Cafe on your way for a coffee too!
And if you need some vintage inspiration look no further than the lovely Fashion Forestry or young little Tavi.

Well, I'm off now to alter my frock. Happy Sunday sweet peas.

  1. Awesome finds, Ebony! How good is a bargain vintage discovery?
    I think Gleebooks and Glebe Markets are my other non-Clipper reasons to skulk around Glebe Point Road. But otherwise .... (OK, maybe the Todae store for eco-nerd stuff and I don't mind the mango-cheese quesadilla at Flying Fajita Sisters!)

  9. Hello lovely Pip! Thank you for your super sweet message! Love your starry line pattern! :) So happy you like the big pics too! I must admit it took me a while to work out how to do that! haha! xxx

    Hi Hiki! Yes that is indeed where Glebe is! I used to have a market stall there in fact when I used to have my own clothes label! I wish you were coming on a holiday to Sydney now and then we could hang out together! When did you come to Australia? Oh thank you so much for you lovely encouragement on my first lesson! It was quite hard actually and reminded me how terrible my kanji is! eek! I think I need to buy an electronic dictionary! Do you know any good ones for gaijin? xxx

    Hi Riyo-san, I am so happy you could enjoy Clipper cafe! How exciting that you will be going to Tokyo. If you leave your email address I will send you a few favourites. I do have a Hello Sandwich Tokyo guide in the works but it is not finished yet :( I will also let you know when I have finished it!

    Hi Little Miss B, Thank you for your comment and for stopping by Hello Sandwich! I am so happy you liked the photos and they could inspire you! Pity you are too far away :( maybe one day!

    Hi Joanne, isn't the kitchenette so super cute! I love it! So happy you like the earring collection too!

    Hello lovely Sarah, I know! It's so exciting when you find a cute bargain!
