This harbourside suburb is one of Sydney’s coolest shopping neighbourhoods with the highlights scattered along Darling Street. On Saturdays travel on foot from Balmain to Rozelle markets, passing Alfie’s Store, fabulous fashion at duckeggBLUE, Leona Edmiston Vintage and stunning hand-made jewellery at Juel.
Love shoes? Check out European imports at Shoes in the Attic or funky designs at Children of the Revolution. An eclectic mix of women’s designer wear is at Strelitzia and Bella Emporio. At Balmain Markets hunt for great recycled fashion, pre-loved books and music, antiques and collectables.
