No one has mentioned House of Cashmere or The Vintage Clothing Shoppe in the arcade across from LV on Castlereagh st in the city...

Are there any good designer vintage stores (besides the one mentioned above) I'd love to have the luck many people have in the US of finding intact vintage Chanels.. and what not

Sydney shopping is quite er, quiet :p

I used to do lots of market/vintage shopping, stopped, and started up again recently. Kirribilli markets is terrible. I used to find lots of great buys, now everything is so expensive, and there's not much vintage or good 2nd hand stuff anymore, just lots of commercial things/mass imports of cheap clothing. It was a huge disappointment. DON'T GO!

I am a cheap a$$, so I like to go to Rozelle markets on weekends to buy second hand used stuff. Sometimes you find ultra cool stuff and the atmosphere there is great.

i miss my dear old sydney!!! glebe markets , the wonderful surry hills with cream on crown (well, EVERY shop on crown street. love for grandma takes a trip and C's flashback!), and in saying that, cream on king in newtown.

i also highly reccommend checking out www.twothousand.com.au, a free to-your-inbox magazine. i found utter gems through this, and not just for shopping, but for entertainment, art, and hidden spots, as well.

^ We now have a Miu Miu in Sydney Westfield but really, if you're coming from overseas it would probably be much cheaper to buy from wherever you live or over the internet. The markups are ridiculous here. It was reported in the Sydney Morning Herald a while ago that the markups for cosmetics in Aus/NZ are the highest in the world. For example, we pay at least double US$ MAC prices despite our dollar being much stronger.

As a Sydney resident/market fan, I can say that in the past few years Sydney markets have really suffered from people wholesaling mass-produced cheap clothes. Glebe, Paddington, Kirribilli- I don't know why they let people do this. Every second stall was one last time I went to Glebe, they all sell the same things from the same manufacturers and it was so disappointing to see. You go to a market for local designers and individual pieces and designs- these people shouldn't be allowed to sell there.

Gucci recently launched their flagship store, and so will the new LV store on George.

i went to rozelle market last weekend and loving it!! my bf's friend had a booth there and it's so fun to sit around to eat and shop there, love the atmosphere
i also did a little shopping around new town, found some great vintage clothing there.
cream in new town have good choices but very generic and specific vintage style, the price is not too cheap too. i get some cute dresses in rozelle for 2, 5 and 15$ but in cream the dresses are 49$, men's shirts around 23-29$
the louis vuitton in george street across apple store is quite big too, bought an iphone case there, good service and the price is like stated in louisvuitton.com for australia and that is included GST.
