Arthur's Circus

Arthur's Circus is a gorgeous new Melbourne shop full of all the kooky and colourful retro-style bits and pieces that we seem to be falling over ourselves for these days... lovely one-of-a-kind things like vintage lighting, industrial furniture and signage, vintage prints and posters, antique toys and nik naks much much more... The shop also showcases the work of local artists and photographers.

Arthur's Circus belongs to Natalie Jeffcott - an ex-visual merchandiser and photographer, and her partner Nick Fitzgerald - a former electrician and avid collector,re-decorator and restorer of furniture/bikes/things. Their love of vintage goodies, and their desire to showcase Natalie's photography and the talents of others, inspired Natalie and Nick to open their little treasure trove in North Melbourne.

Natalie also has a gorgeous blog that is full of photos from the shop and latest news, as well as generally entertaining ramblings and inspiring images. You can also check out Natalie's photography here. AND There's also another great blog post about Natalie over at Poppytalk with lots of photos and an interview about her many collections!

ALSO if you're a snoop like me you'll also love sneaking a look into Natalie and Nick's beautiful Melbourne home - some photos below but check out the whole slideshow at Apartment Therapy. OH OH and if you aren't Circussed out yet (I'm not) you can see even more Arthur's Circus eye candy on their Flickr page.
