This post is a sequel to my last post where I let you in on a few hot spots around Collingwood, Melbourne.
Now I shall ferry you about Fitzroy and show you a few treasures.
Neil’s Art Store, located at 44-46 Greeves Street, Fitzroy is a one stop shop for art materials and equipment.
They are especially handy for products of a printmakery nature!
You will be taken good care of by the charming Paul and Ben who can give you all kinds of advice about all kinds of interesting things art related and otherwise.
A hop, skip and jump away at 227 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy you will find the fabulous Shop Sui by Sylvia Tai.
If you need the perfect gift for that perfect someone (or even a treat for yourself!) Sylvia is your lady.
Her super store is overflowing with a superabundance of super cute stuff – it is a must see.
Just over the road at 228 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy you will find the scrumptious Fatto a Mano organic bakery.
They make a multitude of delicious snacks and treats.
Amongst my favourites are the tomato focaccia, sour dough rolls and cranberry cookies.
You will always be greeted by a friendly face at Fatto a Mano.
If in Fitzroy and in need of a spicy feed make your way to Trippy Taco at 234 Gertrude Street.
This vegetarian restaurant is a fiesta of flavour.
My regular order is the vegan nachos but I also enjoy a taco now and then.
Thanks for taking the tour!
In closing here’s a blast from the past that provided inspiration for this post…

‘Cities must be fun.’
– James Rouse (1914-1996)
Judged the world’s most livable city in 2011.
Contentiously referred to as the cultural capital of the country.
The place I have called home since 1995.
I’ve previously featured my studio at the Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne.
It is very close to the inner city suburbs of Collingwood and Fitzroy, which I frequent for various reasons.
I thought it might be fun to take you on a tour of a few of my haunts.
Firstly, here is Collingwood through my (somewhat blurry, black and white) eyes!
Australian Galleries in Collingwood represent my work and I exhibit at the 50 Smith Street gallery space.
The Smith Street gallery is managed by the most excellent Nicholas Thompson and Kattie Bugeja.
As well as the main gallery space that presents an exciting range of exhibitions, the Smith Street location also houses an intimate print room.
In the print room you can view work by a plethora of awesome artists including Deborah Williams, Graeme Drendel, Alexi Keywan… and me!
Located a few doors along from Australian Galleries at 46 Smith Street, Collingwood is the fantastic Fluff Hair.
This funky salon is where I have my coiffure styled by scissor genius, Mario Italiano.
Relaxing follicle conditioning and hot beverages are ably provided by the enigmatic Brendon.
Amble on down the road a little further and you will come across the astounding St Luke Artist Colourmen, purveyors of quality art supplies, at 32 Smith Street, Collingwood.
What a sweet shop is to a kid, St Luke Artist Colourmen is to artists!
Kez Hughes and Paul Williams of St Luke are fabulous fonts of information regarding anything and everything art related.
Round the way at 9 Campbell Street, Collingwood you will find the inimitable Neo Frames.
These guys are who I trust to frame all my art – drawings, prints and paintings.
The customer service and workmanship at Neo are beyond compare.
Give Bob and the crew a visit if you have any framing needs.
If you’re lucky dashing shop dog Neko may be around to give you a friendly greeting!
In a fortnight i’ll scoot you all over Fitzroy in Nosing around – part 2.
Until next time!
