Return To Geelong’s Amazing Mill Market

We always love a trip to G-Town, and no visit is complete without a stop at the The Amazing Mill Market. We already showed off all the beautiful retro gaming goodies we spotted, but there was so much more – and we couldn’t resist putting together a second story to show you all the other weird and wonderful things we found. As the Mill Markets website says:

‘At Amazing Mill Markets you will find a selection of vintage clothes, vintage furniture, collectibles, antiques, memorabilia, home decor, fine china, art, glass, coins, jewellery, books and records – to name a few things!’

The Thrill Of The Chase: Gone Hunting

There was only one thing to do on a cold and miserable Sunday – go hunting! No guns or ammunition were required for this hunting trip. We armed ourselves with warm clothing and a keen eye to find some retro gaming gear and other vintage items.

Once the target was found, we went in to prowl. It was clear from the outset that this hunting trip was not going to disappoint. Once we got past the usual household kitsch items, we found precious arcade machines from the 1970s, lots of comics, vinyl records and a number of classic video gaming systems and games.

The selection of retro gaming systems and games did get the nostalgic nerve quite excited. There was no way we were going to leave empty handed on this hunt. Sorry wallet.

Didn’t know where to focus on this collection of action figures. Daytona USA lurked in the background
