Time Out Sydney

Open every Saturday and Sunday, Rozelle Markets is the place to go for a good rummage through second-hand treasures

Rozelle is the closest Sydney gets to old European flea market. From vintage fur coats and Elton John on vinyl to rusting collectors’ coins, dog-eared paperbacks, dusty china teacups, ’80s denim jackets and clunky old suitcases – Rozelle is a bargain-hunter’s lolly shop. The unwanted tat, genuine antiques and second-hand homewares start from $1 a piece. 

Beeline for... John Shepherdson’s Light Industrial stall. He’s there each week with handcrafted industrial lamps he’s created from old theatre lights – he’s even made a desk lamp from salvaged parts of a 2002 iMac G4. They’re on the pricey side, but it’s worth a look solely to marvel at Shepherdson’s craft and ingenuity.
