Vintage Sourcer's New Collections

Hello Ladies & Gents,

Time has flown this year, summer has past us (although it's still fairly warm) and autumn has arrived. We have been busy sourcing new stock and revamping the website for you to help you find what you're looking for in amongst it all.

Our website now allows you to search items by All Collections, Brands, Circa and Material.

At "All Collections" you will find all the product types that we have sourced for you. If you’re after a Vase in particular, "All Collections" has a Vases Collection where you can browse through to find something that you like.

Maybe you want to browse a particular brand? Click “Brands” and you will find mostly all the sought after Tableware brands.

“Circa” will take you to an era that ranges products relative to those time periods. We have Antiques (dating 100 years or older), Art Deco (1925 – 1940s), 1950s, Sixties, Seventies and Vintage (1980s – 1990s)

After some Fine Bone China? Click "Materials" to narrow your search. We range materials from crockery to pottery to metals to wood.

Don’t forget that there’s a search button in the top left if you want to simply search an item by key words.

We hope that you find what you’re looking for with ease or simply enjoy browsing through our vintage collection. We welcome your feedback. Let us know what you love most about vintage. What products or brands do you love? Feel free to leave a comment or contact us directly. We would love to hear from you.

Welcome to Vintage Sourcer

My name is Robyn and I have worked for myself all of my life. Now, finally, I am turning my love and interest into a lifestyle and enjoy passing on the pleasure of old and recycling to others. This is how Vintage Sourcer began..

My grandparents, my Mum and her two brothers immigrated from the U.K in the early 50s and so as a child I was surrounded by interesting and beautiful English pieces - clocks, china, bells,ornaments, toys etc. My Grandmother would always give me something and I am sure my love of the ‘OLD’ started then.

I have visited many countries and I always find myself drawn to the antique, secondhand and op shops of an area - I get a certain feeling and I begin to just soak up the atmosphere of the stories and history. Often, I purchase a special piece that reminds me of my time in that area and I then let it start a new chapter in our home.

My eldest daughter has lived in London for 8 years and on a trip with my other daughter and my Mum, we visited a small seaside town in the north of England . There, I picked up a business card and later ordered a tea pot from John which he sent to me here in Australia. I am now expecting a second container from John to arrive next month. His shop is at the corner of the streets where my grandparents and great grandparents lived most of their lives. Yes, I think this is meant to be!

I also now source items locally. Aside from Australian items, I find so many pieces with FAR AWAY origins. 

I hope you enjoy visiting our store and imagining the stories behind the items as much as I do.
