We sell only what we love, and oftentimes, what we use and enjoy in our own home. Celebrate the past and treasure it in the present – with The Present Condition!

Our Goals

Discover that perfect retro present, that piece to complete your collection, or that unique knick-knack to add to your life. Every item we offer is carefully preened, cleaned, and sheened adding that TPC-TLC you will love and expect to receive from us.

Thank you

Thank you for landing here and supporting a Brisbane small business when you shop with us. We love that you’re making a conscious and considerate choice for the environment by choosing to re-use, recycle, and repurpose. After all, shopping to save useful and beautiful products from landfill is a wonderful part of the emerging circular economy.
