Dock 1 industrial antiques is a treasure trove of character finds. Dock 1 has been trading for years in three sites across Sydney. The old Newtown retail warehouse is now home to Berkelouw Bookstore & café. A fantastic renovation and slick example of adaptive re-use. The Marrickville Dock 1 has since closed up shop, but the Camperdown site is certainly worth a visit if you don't mind getting in amongst a bit of dust on the workshop floor. Pre-loved furniture, old timbers, fittings, turned legs, blocks, church pews and so much more. The creative possibilities are endless.
Doug up on Bourke in Sydney's Bourke St is another must-visit destination if you're looking for something old, familiar, or just out of the ordinary. Offering up a vast display of fascinating stuff including street signs, bus rolls, antique medicinal bottles and stamped crates to carry your wares home in. They've taken the legwork out of sourcing and obviously spent a lifetime trawling around country towns to come up with such an impressive selection of memorabilia.
