This is an interseting shop to search through, especially if you are looking for that missing part. There are lots of handles, knobs and hinges to look through. The staff are helpful when ordering things in.

Having moved to Bendigo and found a home to renovate I decided to travel into Castlemaine this morning to source my door hardware and bathroom accessories. This proved to be a disappointing waste of miles and my time. While I'll concede the building contains a...More

Should have brought some measurements from home before coming here. What a place. Brought a few things, but could have brought more.

If you've always wanted to find a shop that your husband would be happy to go into go no further.... It's man's idea of heaven. If you are renovating a period property this shop should be your first stop. From the front it gives no...More

If you are interested in old things or renovating, this is the place for you. There is a mix of real and replica, all for sale. Ranges from door handles to fine china. Browsing is good. I think you wuld always walk away with something.

So much hardware, crockery, fixtures and fittings, bric-à-brac and everything is orderly and in its own special place. A very orderly place and it would be very easy to find that special item you need. Worth having a stroll through.

Thank you for your feedback. My husband and I are the owners of The Restorers Barn. We work very hard to provide an enjoyable shopping experience from having a great product offer, friendly surroundings and attentive staff. We do care when we hear feedback such as yours, and having looked back to see who was on staff that day - we did have a trainee on who was very much still learning the ropes (being his fourth week of employment here). I am pleased that our team of staff really do care, and we are often acknowledged for how polite and helpful they are. We do offer a casual browsing environment without wanting to pressure customers into purchasing - so we remain visible & available to help, but we are not pushy. For many people we are purely an old world shopping experience - having lots of interesting and wonderful things to see. We cater for a broad audience - from people taking a trip down memory lane - to serious home builders & renovators, interior designers and collectors. Thank you again for your feedback. We welcome you to re-visit our store and enjoy what we do offer - we work hard for it!

Hi, I wrote a reveiw November 5th 2015. You may have me mixed up with someone else's reveiw because I only had the fullest praise for Restorers Barn and no bad comments on the staff. They were very helpful
