It’s only worth visiting 84 Smith Street if you have a discerning design eye, or the beauties that lie within won’t be fully appreciated.

The folks behind Nook Vintage have acquired so much over the years that they have now opened an enormous warehouse space filled with just the sort of vintage/industrial furniture and home wares that seem to have captivated Melbourne’s imagination. Also, they deliver locally at no extra cost. If that doesn’t convince you, nothing will.
