At Fat Shack Vintage we aim to only offer products that are readily available to ship. This means that it is either IN STOCK at our Melbourne facility or there is a STANDARD or EXTENDED LEAD TIME before arrival of stock to our facility.

The quantity displayed is in stock at our Melbourne distribution facility ready for despatch.

Upon receipt of your order, we need to transfer the stock from one of our local Australian suppliers to our distribution facility in Melbourne. On receipt of the stock your order will be sent in entirety typically within 1-2 business days. Supply levels change on a daily basis so if after ordering it becomes apparent that there is now an unexpected, extended lead time for replenishment of an item then our customer service team will notify you as soon as possible and provide you with the updated lead time.

At times, an item or items you have purchased can unexpectedly become unavailable for immediate shipping, resulting in an extended lead time. If it is already known that an item is not readily available to ship and there is an extended delay, lead time information will be displayed here under the Extended Lead time section on the item listing.

Once all items in your order are available, we will ship your order in its entirety.

With thousands of products available for sale on our website and the nature of supply and demand fluctuations with fast moving goods, it is impossible to keep all items 100 per cent in stock, 100 per cent of the time. We offer a variety of products and finishes to try and suit many tastes, so unexpected delays can and do occur.

If your order is urgent then please contact us to discuss options.

We are always here to help so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at or (03) 9585 6836.

From vintage rustic chic to country provincial, nothing beats festoon lights to set the mood. These string lights can be used inside the home, over your desk, shelf or around a mirror. Zigzag them across the ceiling to dress up a room. String them overhead outdoors to transform the ambience in your backyard space or use a couple of sets together to illuminate your patio, porch or deck. They are the perfect DIY party light kit. 

These string lights are far more robust than what you would get cheaply at a hardware store (you get what you pay for!). As such they are also suitable for commercial applications. Suitable for both indoor an outdoor use they are ideal for landscape lighting and hospitality fit-outs such as cafes, wineries, markets and festival tents. Perfect for dressing up any area for special occasions such as wedding lights where they are often seen sweeping across gazebos or other entertaining areas to outline the space. Outdoor string lights are so versatile... their use are only limited by the imagination!

    great customer service

    Just thought I'd send a thank you for my light fittings arriving safe. I am absolutely wrapped with my lights. You're online pictures do them no justice; they look better than I imagined. I now have to wait about a month for our friend to install them but I will send through some pics when they're up. Thank you again for your great customer service - I would recommend you to all my friends.
