    14 Aussie Shops You Probably Forgot About Until Right Now

    All my pocket money used to be spent at Granny May's and Kleins.

    1. Granny May's

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    THE place to get stickers... and giggle at the "adult" section at the back.

    2. Kleins

    seek.com.au, pinterest.com

    Long before Diva or Lovisa, Kleins was there for all your cheap jewellery needs.

    3. Clint's Crazy Bargains

    angelfire.com, instagram.com

    Say it with me now: "It's CRAAAAAAAZY!"

    4. Copperart

    youtube.com, gumtree.com.au

    If you collected porcelain dolls, Copperart was one of your fave places.

    5. Red Earth

    cfdirect.com.au

    Red Earth still exists as a brand, but back in the day their stores were EVERYWHERE.

    6. The Lost Forests

    thelostforests.com.au

    While a store has just reopened in Melbourne, these magical places were once much more common.

    7. Tandy

    pinterest.co.uk, rctoymemories.com

    Before there was JB Hi-Fi, you got all your high-tech toys (portable cassette player, anyone?) from Tandy.

    8. Darrell Lea

    yelp.com.au, bsale.com.au

    Sure, you can still get the products, but the stores themselves were HEAVEN.

    9. Brashs

    Twitter: @BrashsAustralia, youtube.com

    An Australian institution that is sadly no longer with us.

    10. Grace Brothers

    auspostalhistory.com

    Chances are if you live in NSW, your grandparents still call Myer "Grace Brothers".

    11. Fosseys

    youtube.com, youtube.com

    There was a time when Target Country stores were all Fosseys.

    12. Angus and Robertson

    en.wikipedia.org, whatsitworth.com.au

    They still have a strong online presence, but once upon a time you couldn't go into a shopping centre without seeing one of these bookstores.

    13. Video Ezy

    en.wikipedia.org, instagram.com

    No sleepover was complete without a trip to the video shop.

    14. Tuckerbag

    realcommercial.com.au

    Tuckerbag had Tucker – undoubtedly the most iconic supermarket mascot of all time.
