Have you ever wondered what sits in the back rooms of Northcote’s eclectic shops? This Saturday you can find out as High Street’s independent traders transform the sidewalk into a trash and treasure market.
It’s almost like being a tourist and re-discovering Northcote by revealing what has been hidden away. When you’re tired and want to put your feet up, there’s also a selection of great cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants to refresh yourselves at, before you continue foraging.
With Northcote’s reputation as an incubator for independent designers, you’re bound to find special one-off pieces as you roam the street. Locally designed hand made wares, retro home fittings, upcycled furniture and vintage clothing are all on offer. And while you’re shopping up a storm, be heartened by the fact that you’re supporting independent local traders.
The High Street Sidewalk Sale runs from 10am – 4pm on Sat 27 April.
