Vintage Market In Moorabbin

Hidden within a small industrial area of Moorabbin is Erstwhile Market selling retro and vintage items.

I stumbled upon this place a few weeks ago and on my first visit was glad to see a few second hand books for sale, as well as toys, pictures and clothes.  The market is located in a large warehouse at 12 Horscroft Place (near St Kilda's AFL training ground), the people running it are both friendly and helpful, and have been operating the business for about 15 months.

I found these two Bond books among the books for sale.  I hadn't seen this John Gardner hardback omnibus before, and while I didn't buy it as I concentrate on paperbacks, I thought the image of Bond on the cover was interesting.

No purchases for me today but when I'm in the area again I'll definitely be dropping in to see what new books they might have.
