SWAP LAND – CLOTHES SWAP/PICNIC! Sunday August 1st, Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden

July 8, 2010

Tired of trawling the Op Shops only to find that some lightening-fast Vintage Shop has got their jammy digits in there first, taking the 1950s two piece mohair suits and sixties smart mod dresses, leaving you to rifle through the late eighties stained shell-suit collection?  Yeah, me too.  Well this could be the answer – one big glorious clothing Swap Meet! No money changes hands, meet other fans of vintage shopping and all in DIY community style.  Brilliant!

The Swap Meet crew supplied information as follows:

It’s time to bring the Swap Land community together, and cut out the middle man. Swap Land presents the first (we hope, of many) clothes swap picnic.

What happens? Bring clothes or accessories you don’t want any more (clean and in wearable condition, please…if tattiness is actually part of their charm, fine, but please bring stuff you think other people would actually want). They’ll go into a central “pool”, and if you bring stuff, you can take home other stuff. It’s that simple. If you want to bring fancier/more expensive stuff, and barter for it one-on-one, that’s fine, but we do ask that you bring something for the central bank.

What to bring: Clothes, of course, but we’d love to make a day of it, so bring picnic food/drinks, and a blanket. We’d absolutely love it if (in the spirit of the day) you could bring something communal, so we can share treats as well as clothes, but it’s not mandatory. If you have a spare picnic blanket we could use to put the clothes on (we may need a few!), that would be wonderful – you’ll get it back when you go!

Clothing will range from alternative through to the usual stuff and possibly some baby clothes for the new families out there. We may try to ‘file’ it into rough categories if there’s enough.

Where is it? In the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden, in King’s Domain. If you haven’t already discovered this little gem, it’s just near the Myer Music Bowl. There’s a link with directions, here: http://www.melbourneplaces.com/melbourne/the-pioneer-women%E2%80%99s-memorial-garden-in-the-royal-domain-is-an-area-of-peace-and-charm/

And a map, here: http://thatsmelbourne.com.au/Documents/Maps/DomainGardensNewMap.pdf

Easy access by public transport, nice and secluded. If it looks like the weather’s going to be disgusting, we will send a message to all attendees and arrange an alternative venue or date.

When is it? Sunday, August 1st, from 2pm onwards.

This Saturday: International Independent Record Store Day

April 16, 2009

/culled from the Indie Initiative email list – a very worthy cause!!!!!  From this list, remember Heartland Records, Greville Records, Peril Underground, Polyester Records, Metal Mayhem:  but there’s also Missing Link, Hear Now Records, DMC Records, Liquorice Pie Records, Northside Records… plenty more too, just waiting to help you love music :D  Google maps can help if you need to find one near you!

 

 

It’s World Record Store Day on Saturday www.worldrecordstoreday.com .

Record stores are the heartbeat of music. Those indie stores that are left survive because they cater to their consumers needs. The proprietors and staff have the knowledge to steer people in the right direction, they help musicians get their product out and give joy when the have the music you want.

I have a bad vinyl habit that needs more records. This week I got Zaireeka (Flaming Lips) and a Superfunk compilation from Second Spin in Carlisle St, the new My Morning Jacket album (complete with CD) and a soul compilation at Greville Records and a DVD of The Prairie Home Companion from Record Paradise in Chapel Street.  Record Paradise in now run by Paul and Renee and is completely changed from Warrens Record Paradise. You can now find vinyl sorted into some sort of order. It’s still a crate diggers paradise, but they have added books and movies (helped by Paul Harris from 3RRR).

Warrens was run by possibly the unfriendliest and rudest proprietor ever. It’s next to the Police station at 100 Chapel Street (near Carlisle St).

If you’ve been there you know what I mean. But now it’s sweetness and light.

Basement Discs and Polyester will be having instore appearances.

Record store were and are a great source of knowledge. Support them on Saturday, but support them very week. It can be easier to go to a chain, but having some knowledgable discussion will be far more illuminating. You never know who you might meet. I met Nick Cave recently at Greville. He always supports local stores. In’t it time you did to.

Greville Records: cult dvds in Prahran!

March 8, 2009

 

I’ve not been out to investigate, but I’ve had a hot tip that Greville Records have a healthy collection of cult kitsch dvds now.  Already famous for their large range of music on cd and vinyl, there has always been a reasonable dvd selection in this cornucopia of a small shop.  But now, apparently, the selection has increased in size like David Banner becoming the Hulk!!

Their website has a small selection of the DVDs available there, and is endearingly oldskool but a bit low on info.  So it may require a trek out to Chapel/Greville, which in itself can lend satisfaction of a number of other kinds… Comics R Us,  Charley Weaver, Chapel Tattoo, Chapel Street Bazaar… definitely worth the trek. 

From their website you could currently pick up the following cult kitsch titles:

WAR OF THE WORLDS 1954…$20 the original and best
