I get asked on a regular basis from overseas visitors where are the best and most affordable places in Melbourne to shop as a tourist.
Here is something that dropped in my inbox yesterday:
Hi, Lady Melbourne,
I'm from Malaysia, I'm going to Australia next week and I'll be in Melbourne for two weeks. I would like to know where are good places to shop. Could you help? I would like to know some places with clothes, shoes, bags, accessories (basically everything!) that are, well, relatively cheap because I'm on a budget. It would be great if you could help out!
I’ve put together 5 places I think you could shop and get some great pieces that are really affordable, but as usual I’ll put a call out to my readers that if you have anything to contribute please feel free to leave a comment!
