Spectacular finds: Dusty Old Things

There’s plenty to discover at vintage store Dusty Old Things, who have recently settled into a bright new location on Wairakei Road.



The larger venue means they can stock even more spectacular finds from jewellery to tools and everything in between.

Owner Glenis Parker wants to thank all her new and existing customers for their support during the transition, but it’s still business as usual. “We’re selling a vast range of items,” she says. “Vintage jewellery, clothing, linen, pottery, glassware, collectables, and furniture from all eras.

“A dedicated clothing room also includes hats and fascinators which are great for that ‘one-of-a-kind, individual look for any occasion.’”

Top-selling items are the vintage and retro lights (more arriving late September), home and furniture accessories, and realistic artificial flowers that brighten up any room.

With plentiful parking, popping into the shop at 526 Wairakei Road is easy – you never know what purchases you’ll discover to take home.

Vintage vibes: get the look in your home

There’s something deliciously authentic about 20, 30 and 40 year old homewares with their ability to bring a well-loved homeliness and cosy warmth to a space.

Vintage Vibes

The prevailing popularity of the vintage vibe has seen it become an enduring style staple with a quality that transcends time.
And, with the cyclical nature of trends bringing things back into the fashionable forefront time and time again, vintage styles are even easier to integrate into the modern home.
Vintage pieces are not only adaptable to current trends, but are often timeless classics that can become a centrepiece in your space.
Although garage sales and flea markets can yield just the right treasure to complete a collection and make your space, sometimes time just isn’t on your side when it comes to trawling.
So designers, furniture makers and even wallpaper companies are coming to the homewares party with new ‘old’ things, so your abode can look the vintage part.
