Opening Next Weekend

It's been been quiet in the hilbarn new vintage shop over winter, but the bulbs are coming up now, the fronds are unfurling, and the covers are coming off. Give us a call or drop us an email if you'd like to visit sometime.

Turning Over A New Leaf

What do you really need? That's what new vintage is all about. Making do, re-thinking, resisting the impulse to buy something totally new and putting your own stamp on what exists already. We thought these messages written on leaves and left as offerings were just that (spotted on an outing to Rocky Hills Retreat on the East Coast, south of Swansea). Who needs paper when a dried gum leaf will do?

More Of What's In Store

Views of the Hilbarn New Vintage Store featuring things we love that we've found in our travels. While  hunting and gathering fresh produce each week, it's hard to resist a garage sale, farm clearance, or special finds from a local market. You'll find us on the Tamar Valley Wine Route on Pipers River Road, Karoola.
