If you love finding unique pieces of vintage furniture and homewares, then you need to visit The Old Boathouse in East Brisbane. Katherine and her husband Kristen have been sourcing antiques and vintage items for over 20 years. The treasures they find will excite and amaze you. I have purchased a number of pieces from them over the years, and never leave empty handed when I visit the store. Being vintage, each piece is unique and the stock changes over quickly. Here’s what was on display during my recent visit.
Here’s a little virtual tour around the shop
While you’re visiting, stop for a coffee or bite of lunch at The Secret Garden Cafe.
There’s always so many beautiful and curious items on display – giant clam shells, hat blocks, vintage toys, fine bone china, silverware and more. Katherine paints and restores many of the furniture items herself, custom mixing the colour for a unique look.
The Old Boathouse is located within The Cottage Garden Nursery at 999 Stanley Street, East Brisbane. Follow them on Facebook or Instagram to see all the latest finds as they arrive.
