Time Out says

Here's where you can recreate fashions of decades gone by for a small outlay

The Ipswich Road strip of Annerley is a nerve centre for nostalgia. Antiques shops, comics shops and retro toy shops are all clustered around the ancient Annerley Arcade, and one can easily while away a morning browsing bric-a-brac of yesteryear. Vintage Revival is a highlight: a wonderfully curated second-hand clothing store decorated with sixties wallpaper and posters of Golden Age film classics and stars like Lauren Bacall and Marlon Brando. 

It’s the kind of place where cool kids discovering 1970s fashion rub shoulders with old codgers talking about the good old days. Items are grouped according to the era in which they were made (or which inspired them), and you can pick up a fab little number here for around $15. Grab a halter top, cloche hat, go-go dress or Paisley shirt and a pair of old school Ray Bans to go with them. 

There are shoes, hats, wigs and some fancy dress outfits too. The shop is run by Lifeline but you’d swear it was someone’s passion project. We adore it.
