Unique Boutiques


Red House - Shop & Café

North Adelaide Railway Station, War Memorial Drive, North Adelaide 5006 SA


While Red House Shop & Cafe is known for its charming brick frontage and unique railway location, lemon meringue pancakes and other delicious baked goodies, their vintage shop is one of Adelaide's best kept secrets! All the treasures are handpicked by the owner, Emily, who has been curating threads from generations past for 14 years. Infuse some retro flavour through your space with some homewares and bric-a-brac or update your wardrobe with a one of a kind piece from the 60s through to the 90s. You'll find an ample supply of both womens and mens clothes, accessories and jewellery in a wide range of sizes.

Marilyn's Depot Vente

24A O'Connell St, North Adelaide, 5006


Marilyn's Depot Vente brings Paris Fashion Week right to North Adelaide. What looks like a tiny doorway from O’Connell Street leads to a high ceiling, natural light-filled alcove brimming with incredible European clothing and accessories, with a nice mix of local talent. It isn’t unusual to come across Salvatore Ferragamo box bags with their signature bows, Louis Vuitton monogram and a splash of Burberry nova check. Even if you aren’t ready to break the bank, it’s worth visiting for the eye candy alone!
