Vintage Furniture and Homewares at Reclaim Newtown

Vintage Furniture and Homewares at Reclaim in Newtown

I’m a huge fan of vintage decor. I love that a piece has lived a life and has a story to tell. I had been eyeing off Reclaim Newtown for some time for this very reason. Not only is it filled to the brim with homewares, fashion and stationery that I have seen nowhere else, but it also has the added bonus of being owned and operated by the glorious Monica Trapaga – jazz singer and Play School alumni! The store is a collection of her favourite things (and now some of mine, too!).

As you can see from the photos, the Reclaim Newtown store is a collection of the cute and quirky; everything from fashion accessories, bird ornaments (you know how much I love a bird ornament), gift cards, furniture, candles – you name it. Each piece has a unique, Reclaim flair about it. It’s definitely a little left-of-centre and so very nostalgic, which I love (the vintage suitcases below are just dreamy, don’t you think?).

Besides the stunning vintage vibe this Newtown store has to offer, I was also rather impressed that the team do all of the merchandising themselves, which is no walk in the park if you saw how wonderful their displays are. I was told during my tour that everyone who works at the store is involved in one form of creative art or another outside of Reclaim, which is evident in their interior styling. It’s bold and beautiful and very eye-catching indeed.
