The Salon des Refuses
Visit the old potato packing factory at 24 Pym Street, Millthorpe, (which was originally built as a Gentlemen's Club!) for an eclectic range of unusual antiques and decorative objects to enhance your house or garden. Imagine an old tricycle nestled in a bed of lavender! Grace your front verandah with a rustic kauri pine wheelbarrow or purchase a metal baker’s trolley as a “must-have” for the potting shed.
The owners of the “Salon des Refusés” delight in fossicking for pre-loved treasures in an annual two month buying trip in France, and find their property at Millthorpe the perfect haven for their extensive collection of old wares.
Whether you are seeking an upholstered chair or a whimsically painted cane pram, the Salon des Refusés is a virtual Aladdin’s Cave for the discerning browser. French picnic tables or perhaps a giant meat safe will attract your interest, although myriads of smaller items ensure that everyone’s taste is accounted for.
The Salon des Refuses at Millthorpe houses an eclectic range of European and early Australian antiques which is constantly changing as new stock is added. Some of our impressive pieces include a French bath, a water fountain, a grape picker's hotte and an extensive array of enamel ware. Compared with Sydney antique shops our modest prices will astound you! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram too! Excellent prices on large pieces to make way for new stock!
