It's been a while since I've spoken about a retail space on here - new ones in Sydney seem few and far between lately (although there is no shortage of web ventures - and I'm shopping online for work more than ever). I was pleasantly surprised on Tuesday when I walked around the ground floor auction area at Mitchell Road Antique Centre in Alexandria for the first time in over a year (I'm going to be honest, one had to be in the right mood to sift through the crap and clutter on the ground floor). I was pleasantly surprised - the establishment changed hands towards the end of last year, and it's really obvious. I was particularly drawn to (Interior Designer) Brian Hoy's market area, his stock and merchandising seen above is super beautiful - and very reasonably priced. What an eye! The best bit? You can purchase items on the spot now from all the auction stall holders. Mitchell Road is definitely worth a re-visit - always the first floor, and now, the ground.
