I came across vintage furniture shop Drunk on the Moon by accident on the little strip of shops and restaurants on Newtown’s Australia Street, home to the excellent Black Star Pastry cafe. The shop is tiny but packed with a really well curated selection of vintage furniture and home accessories, like wooden dining tables, small wooden pigeon hole shelves, ladders, ice chests, stools and lots more. Like a little piece of the Brooklyn Flea in Sydney’s Newtown, the prices are really reasonable and it’s one of those places where you fall in love with everything, from the big pieces to the small. Oh, and if you’re into typography there are vintage Scrabble letters for $1 a piece.
