The racks are tight with polka-dot skirts, funky blazers and retro ties, but you’ll find most of the hunting has been done for you at Hunter Gatherer. A visit will bring you back to the days spent sifting through grandma’s closet, dusting off old dresses from the fifties and sixties.

Dedicated volunteers from the Brotherhood of St Laurence handpick the best quality vintage and contemporary pieces from generous donations to fill the three (Fitzroy, CBD and St Kilda) op-like shops.

A little musty inside – understandably so – the store has a pleasant community vibe, stocking ethical and fair-trade products.

The not-for profit ethos and the fact that your money is going to a worthwhile charity, along with knowing that the items in Hunter Gatherer have been selected from the hundreds of thousands of items donated each year to the Brotherhood of St Laurence, makes shopping here just that little bit nicer.
