After a few location changes, Lost and Found have settled into Fitzroy's Brunswick Street. Vintage lovers across Melbourne lust after Lost and Found, a huge cavern of pure vintage heaven drawing in second-hand fans like moths to a flame. There's clothes of course (men and women), as well as furniture, books, lights, toys, records and bric a brac.

In many ways, a trip to Lost and Found is like an inadvertent visit to the Lost Dogs Home: it's packed with precious little things hoping for a warm, loving home. Maybe you weren’t expecting to leave with a fuzzy orange armchair, but you really didn’t have a choice, did you? Just like back in the good old days there's no online shopping available, so you'll have to go into the store to find your next retro treasure.
