We stumbled across this little treasure after having brunch at Boundary Espresso further down Plenty Road. If it hadn’t been for the bright blue paint on the brickwork, I may have just walked by and not explored but I do love blue and there was a stenciled sign that said MADMAN VINTAGE so I had to go in.
There were a few people inside checking out the furniture, interested in an old Parker Style sideboard. Whereas I was looking at the cute little chair (red one) in above photo.
Each item has a story and if the could talk, the tales they would tell. For example these lights – where they on a desk, bedside table, drawing board for an draftsperson? Who knows.
Some of the more eclectic pieces are table lamps, sculptures, artwork and even old kids toys.
These statues above were interesting and a little out of character for the shop but it’s these very things that make this place enjoyable to visit.
