Who are we?

Apostlebird is the inspiration of Jacqui Rafferty whose dream was always to open a vintage retail store on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We are buyers and sellers of one-of-a-kind objects from around the world, brought fresh to you at our store in beautiful Manly. Mainly sourcing our stock from the USA, hand picking pieces from East to West coast. From digging deep through the gritty stalls at New York’s Brooklyn Flea to breathing in the SoCal atmosphere at LA’s Rosebowl we source from all over the country to bring you the truly weird and the wonderful. As well as our stateside finds we stock a wide range of Australian vintage pieces, unearthed from the far reaches of country NSW to the laneways of cosmopolitan Melbourne. No two items are ever the same and every piece tells an amazing story.         

Our style

From industrial storage to barnyard chic, Rockabilly to Steampunk you will find all kinds of obscure and unusual items at our Manly Store. We sell pieces from the late 1800s up to the modern day. Vintage typewriters, prosthetic body parts, medical instruments, taxidermy and industrial furniture and are just the tip of the iceberg. Objects for the man cave include porcelain and light up signs, vintage Coca Cola merchandise, hood ornaments and classic sports equipment. As each piece is so unique go to our gallery to see the real Apostlebird.

Not only can you buy a unique Apostlebird item to enjoy forever in your home but you can also hire for that one off occasion, event or photo shoot. Please contact us for more information on prop and event hire.
