2. PAST IMAGE
It’s tiny, but this store at the sleepy Excelsior Shopping Centre is a treasure trove of vintage nostalgia. Pick through antique china sets, retro dial phones and movie posters and magazine from the ‘70s to the ‘90s. (5 Coleman St)
3. ACTION CITY
You know you want them: Andy Warhol-inspired Be@rbrick collectibles ($89.90 for three), instant print cameras ($169.90 and up) and a ultra-thin, paperless Boogie Board eWriter ($79.90).
This techie heaven has 178 outlets spread out over six floors, where you can pick up a new tablet, Xbox console or even a FitBit. Don’t be shy to bargain if needed. (109 North Bridge Rd)
If there’s a childhood game you used to love, odds are you’ll find it here. Look a little harder to dig up eccentric items like a Psycho-inspired Blood Bath shower curtain ($38.90). It’s scary good! (2 Orchard Turn)
Even more great toy stores here!
