For all the fashion boutiques and homewares stores on the Sunshine Coast, there’s nothing quite like Mooloolaba’s latest recruit, El Badi.
Intriguing, luxurious, a treasure trove; just some of the words we’d use to describe this vintage-filled space.
It’s full of cosy nooks with antique lounges, chandeliers, oversized ornate mirrors and brass candelabras, sourced from the likes of France and India. Plus, racks upon racks of second-hand pure silk slips, linen shirts and perfectly-worn leather jackets and, for top-end label lovers, you’ll see classics such as Gucci and Yves Saint Lauren. In short, this place is a gold mine for those who like to buy vintage, well-made pieces that you’ll probably have forever.
