not quite exhibition pics

I had planned on uploading a few new photos taken around the shop of our exhibition (and re-arrangement), however in my cleaning frenzy I can't seem to find my card reader to upload photos. So instead a pic of a sweet old child's toy and a link to Gemma's flickr where she has some snaps from opening night.
A big thanks to all those who came and ate way too many lollies and those who have visited us in the pouring Melbourne rain. My favourite part of the night was manning the milkbar / lolly counter with Arthur and watch people umming and aaahing trying to decide what to buy with their $1. (Everything was 20 cents).

a sneak peek and 20 cent sunnyboys

A quick reminder that our exhibition opens tonight from 6pm. After a trek halfway across Melbourne and back we have procured some tasty milkbar treats....and all for yesteryear prices of 20 cents. The best and freshest snowballs in town, sunnyboys, mixed lollies and more. So raid your money box and re-live your childhood and enjoy Gemma, Nat, Miikel and Eamo's look at the fading history of the milkbar, laundromat and urban beauty.
Gallery/shop hours for the exhibition are Thursday to Sunday 11am - 5pm. And contact us for an appointment outside those hours.

awesome squared

we happen to stock a very awesome kid's (and adults) book, which is incidently called "an awesome book" by Dallas Clayton. Well things have gotten even more awesome as he has now set up a kids book foundation. Basically for every copy he sells, Dallas donates one copy to a child or school or hospital etc... So please take a look at this link and go buy an awesome book and dream big.
PS I have just added it to our online shop. Buy from him or us.

snowballs, sunnyboys and sherbert cones

figuring out the logistics and all important opening night treats... the shop is now closed for the week. Our online shop is open for business as usual. And Arthur has been helping me out with a little milkbar etc magnet and badge making. And to answer many a question you don't need to RSVP to attend. So come and hang out at our milkbar for the melbourne fringe festival.

milkbars, laundromats & urban beauty

Back from the printers is our exhibition invite for our upcoming photography show here at Arthur's Circus. Featuring the photographic talents of Gemma Jones, Eamo Donnelly, Miikel Doomernik and moi - Natalie Jeffcott. The exhibition is part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival and also celebrates our 2nd year in business. Opening night is Tuesday 22 September from 6 - 8pm . We will be extending our hours for the duration of the festival. And fingers crossed we'll have less circus and juggling in Arthur's Circus and be able to open an extra day of the week. We shall keep you posted.
