Some of my purchases!
Nambour wasn't always the first place you would think of when wanting a great day out shopping, but that has now changed thanks to the array of fantastic unique shops popping up in the town.

I picked up my friend to spend a day looking around as Nambour is fast getting a reputation for these hidden gems. Small enterprising businesses following their hearts and providing original alternatives to what the mainstream stores in shopping centres offer. 

If visiting I would recommend starting in Howard Street as it is an easy walk from there to all the shops. Here is just some of the amazing shops you can visit:

Mr Beesley Vintage Clothing is in the Old Ambulance Station and has a fantastic range of authentic vintage clothing including mens and womens and accessories galore. Also some vintage knick knacks and artwork.

Urban Fiction carries comics, pop culture and art supplies. I was impressed with how well set out it was and my friend Jo was in her element.

It's great to have very own vinyl record store on the Coast at Back Beat Records , a huge range and I love how everything is set out in categories. Of course I was checking out the reggae section.

Melanie at Pin Curls and Petticoats will have you looking like a gorgeous pin up girl with her range of vintage inspired clothing for sale and she also offers vintage style hair and makeup so you can perfect your look.

We had lunch at Husk and Honey in Queen Street is where I enjoyed the Pumpkin & Feta Tart while my friend had the Fruit Salad. Seriously yummy and I felt like a million dollars afterwards. The cafe is gluten and grain free and had alot of vegetarian options.

Next stop was going up Currie Street to The Time Machine, a treasure trove of vintage and collectable goodness. Vinyl, comics, posters, prints, artwork, vintage clothing, weird stuff. You name it. Go downstairs into the den and you will find all kinds of goodness. All Aussie Adventures - Russel Coight was playing on the VCR in the video room downstairs which led to me taking a load off for a few minutes.  They also hold some cool intimate gigs downstairs occasionally.

Asylum Clothing is your one stop shop for alternative clothing and accessories for men and women. Think steam punk, rockabilly, creepers, rock and roll and you might start to get an idea of the wonderful items on offer. Not only that but there is a cafe inside ( voted best coffee ) and a huge selection of books and artwork. There is also regular events happening in store so best to like their Facebook page to keep informed.

Nambour also has a huge variety of op shops you can visit with interesting wares. I'm sure there is many, many more cool shops in town I missed this time including Podie Pie, Coolihawk and Earth Temple so you will have to go check them out and look for some more hidden treasures!
