Hobart, Australia

Experience hosted by Leigh

3 hours
Includes drinks
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

From meet and greet we'll have a quick chat to see if there are any particular interests or things being sought. I have a good list of op shops, a consignment shop and various vintage/retro and antique shops to choose from. The exact tour will be designed to meet the shoppers on the day. We'll mostly walk from place to place but there are are also a couple of shops worth catching an Uber to if a particular interest is expressed. Depending on the day we may also visit the CWA ladies with their homemade goodies and crafts.

The shops visited vary in size so the duration of stay will reflect this, a couple of shops really need a bit longer to explore.

To replenish our energy there is a great selection of cafes to choose from, a drink is included in the tour.

Walking time varies on where we go but at least 30/40 minutes so suitable shoes and a bag for goodies are recommended.
Be prepared to have fun maybe find some treasures or get that something special to add to your own unique collection..

I love stuff.

I have been a hunter and collector of treasures and op shop clothes since my teens (and as my mother would say "that wasn't yesterday").

The hunt and delight of a find still excites me. I love to know the stories behind "stuff" and imagining the new life they are going to have.

Running a retro/vintage stall in a Syndey antique centre was a dream come true, now in Hobart it's just the occassional stall to keep involved in the vintage community.

Come join me and explore Hobarts streets and treasures.

Where you'll be

Hobart is a very accessible city to get around but it can be confusing with the one way streets so walking is an ideal way to explore. While our time will be focused on visiting the op shops and lovely vintage/retro stores I'm happy to point out other delightful building, art works or my "go to" places.

I was the only one on the tour with Leigh and it was such a delightful experience, Leigh is a lovely lady who makes great conversation and was able to help me find such great vintage clothes and shoes ! I also told her I enjoyed vintage furniture and history and she took me to some awesome stores with antiques and historic items, she was so educated about all the stores we went to and was able to provide recommendations to bars and cafes along the way. 10/10 experience ^.^

Leigh is a lively, friendly host, with great local (and non-local) knowledge. She was gracious when we were late, and checked with us a number of times both before and during as to our interests and satisfaction. Thanks to her I am set for my next visit, being aware of some great places to shop secondhand in Hobart!

Thankyou.Merle DAVIS.

Do you fancy someone with local Knowledge and insight showing you the hidden gems? Then get on this tour with Leigh. Shipping with Leigh was great. She didn’t rush as at all and took the time to find out what we were interested in and then showed us. I HIGHLY recommend Leigh!

A lovely afternoon with great company! It was so nice exploring the various op-shops/vintage stores that Hobart has to offer. Leigh personalises the tour to best accomodate your interests. It was great to get an idea of each store, keeping in mind which stores to come back to in the future. I particularly liked seeing the little hip areas of Hobart, as well as finding a bargain at the good old fashioned Salvos. Leigh also shared a lot of knowledge about Hobart and the history, making it interesting and informative. It was great to walk around with Leigh and have a chat, as she clearly has a passion for vintage & op-shopping. We are also very grateful that Leigh was very flexible with us, letting us reschedule to fit in the Mona gallery into our trip.
