Mitchell Road Antique and Design Centre is the go-to place for anyone who loves searching for rare and unusual antiques. The dealer warehouse is home Sydney’s largest range of pre-loved goods with over 60 stallholders spread across two floors. The antique store, formerly known as Mitchell Road Auction House, has relocated to Bourke Road in Alexandria, where vintage pieces are refashioned and saved from becoming landfill. Owner Lyn Richardson described the process as “recycling, reusing, repurposing and restoring” anything from home wares and lighting to toys, clothing and accessories. Shoppers rest their weary feet at the café before heading back out on their quest for the perfect vintage piece.
