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…
