This Northern Beaches boutique is where the smart shoppers of Manly pick up designer brands without the price tag
Named for the owner’s two sons, Sammy & Sid is a second-hand boutique made from a lot of love. Owner Doriana likes to know as much as possible about her shoppers to guide them through what she has in stock. From the $10-and-up suitcase near the till to the embellished dresses and genuine vintage threads out back, Doriana knows what’s going to fit and she’ll pick out items to add to your changing room pile. The store stocks second-hand fashion, so there’s lots to tempt thrift-shoppers looking to bag a bargain. We find a near-new electric blue jumpsuit from Zara for under $200 and a ’90s romper for under $100. Doriana’s top tip is to follow her pages on social media as she’ll post the latest boho dresses or Prada handbag so regulars know when to drop in. If Australian designers are what you’re looking for, you’re in luck. Sammy & Sid gets frequent drops of Alex Perry, Lisa Ho, Camilla, Sass & Bide, Camilla & Marc and Simona – an iconic label of days gone by.
