For the fans of all things vintage and retro, Collectore is a new vintage shop full to bursting with things to discover. Whether you’re a collector or just a fan of yesteryear, Collectore is a great addition to a city that’s all new and shiny. Situated in the cute and modern neighbourhood of St. Lazarus, it is on the same street as its “mother shop”, Vintage Market.
Collectore is the perfect place to have a browse whether you’re buying vintage items for your home or gifts. It feels like you’re hanging out at your grandmother’s house, full of wonderful old things waiting to found. That’s exactly what’s so charming and lovable about this shop. It is also a different reality compared to the city’s usual hustle and bustle. The shop has rare collectors’ pieces like vinyls, crockery, lamps, posters, cameras and more. Almost everything in the shop is for sale but do be warned that not all items are price tagged.
Something you might not know is how valuable antique McDonald’s Happy Meal toys are! The more well-kept and rare, the higher its market value! Coca-Cola fans are in for a treat because there are also vintage bottles and ashtrays waiting to go to their new home. The couple who owns these shops are truly passionate about vintage items and imports most of them from European countries.
There are also contemporary pieces created by local artists, such as CROZ (Camera Crossover Collections), by Hylé Designs. This brand made a build it yourself camera that you can build at home by following the instructions. The final result? You end up with a wood encased digital camera embedded with a USB cable so you can download your pictures immediately!
Okay not exactly vintage but if you enjoy coffee, there is freshly-brewed coffee available here along with some snacks. Keeping to the theme, these are served on vintage trays.
The next time you’re out and about in the city, take a detour to their shop and step away from modern times. Macau has so much more to offer than gambling, neon signs and shiny buildings! For more vintage and retro fun, follow their adventures on their Facebook page.
