UPDATE JUN 2014 Odditorium Vintage have taken on a commercial lease in the space they have activated since 2010 ensuring this unique destination for vintage vinyl, clothing and collectibles remain open for trade.
Odditorium Vintage is a galleria, portrait parlour and retail store managed by Naomi Saunders a Novocastrian photographer, fashion stylist and avid collector of oddities and vintage wares, as well as being a mother of almost three.
Coming from a long line of small business owners in the Newcastle city precinct – stemming from Tyrrells Recordland (est 1925) to father Bruce Saunders’ King Street institution Antique Sounds (now closed) – the Renew Newcastle objective of pumping life back into the city lies close to her heart.
Odditorium Vintage has a focus on eras past. The galleria houses ever changing installations made up of items from Naomi’s many collections and will also feature local artists.
The retail store includes artwork, handmade and altered fashions and textiles, vintage clothes, jewellery, odds & ends and bric-a-brac, made and found by local artisans for sale.
Peruse vintage finerys and dress yourself up for a picture taken in the portrait parlour amongst the retro decor.
The basement space was previously a jewellers and, with its wood and glass panels and very own antique safe, it has loads of charm and character and is a perfect home for Odditorium Vintage.
All expressions of interest are most welcome.
