The VINTAGE TOOL SHOP in 549 High st, NORTHCOTE 3070 is the ONLY dedicated vintage tool shop in Melbourne.
We know that people always need good tools & we offer unique items that are high quality user grade or collector grade antique hand tools. Most of our tools are of a better quality & more durable than what you buy brand new at a hardware store these days with a few high end exceptions.
The newly opened VINTAGE TOOL SHOP is a combined center for VINTAGE TOOLS MELBOURNE (www.VintageToolsMelbourne.com.au) & VINTAGE DESIGN SHOP (www.VintageDesignShop.com.au). We have been selling vintage & antique & retro items in bazaars & stalls, online via eBay & Etsy, markets & tool sales etc since 2012.

We are proud of what we do & it’s also good for the environment to restore & reuse, not just throw away & buy a new one, but we acknowledge that not everyone has the skill set or facilities to restore their own tools or space to do so, hence we provide sharpened & sensitively restored tools for those people, we also offer a sharpening service for tools that we sell, including razors.
Tools are tax deductible for users, they also don’t lose their value if well looked after & even help you to make you living if you are a maker, plus they never go out of fashion. Tools are cool!
And if you have a collection to dispose of or some tools that you don’t require & wish to sell, please contact us as we are always looking to buy quality tools.
