Weather is cold and rainy with no end in sight. Welcome to spring in Melbourne.

Cheap(ish) shopping: Queen Victoria Market for souvenirs and assorted knick-knacks (not to mention cheap eats), Smith Street in Collingwood for athletic wear, Bridge Road in Richmond for clothes (factory outlets), DFO at either South Wharf or Essendon (haven't been to the Essendon one but SW isn't too bad). I thought Harbour Town in Docklands was pretty crap, but some people seem to like it. Melbourne doesn't do "cheap" shopping very well IMO - better to buy a cheap flight to KL or Hong Kong and shop there!

For shopping for things you wouldn't really find anywhere else: Gertrude Street in Fitzroy (great little artsy street with cool shops and cafes), Brunswick Street in Fitzroy (thrift shops galore), Melbourne GPO in the City (higher end international chains), Chapel Street in South Yarra (some cool boutiques with local designers mixed in with larger chains), St Kilda Arts and Crafts Market on Sundays on the Esplanade (all local designers).
