Home shop


Brisbane's independent shopping scene is concentrated around the inner city, with Fortitude Valley and Paddington the meccas for fashion and vintage, along with a scattering throughout the CBD, eastern suburbs and West End.

Dotted throughout the urban villages are eclectic gifts and homewares shops while the main antique precincts are centred in the south side's Wolloongabba, the west and north.

Tucked away in inner city neighbourhoods are the best book shops, new and secondhand, as are specialty shops peddling the bespoke, eco, musical and general curios.

Then there's Brisbane's burgeoning market culture, with everything from farmers, fashion, kids, vintage, ethnic and organic to be found on weekends around town.
