- For something individual, retro or off-beat, head to Brunswick Street. It's more upmarket than nearby Smith or Gertrude Street, but still boasts an eclectic mix of independent traders. Visit Shag for vintage clothing or Ministry of Style for rave wear. Clover stocks Japanese-inspired clothing and home-ware. There's also a smattering of bookshops, design stores and retro music shops (such as Dixon Recycled). If you need to escape the urban crowds, step into Fitzroy Nursery. This Brunswick Street institution is a haven of plants, trickling fountains and garden art.
