JIM KIDD SPORTS LEAVING FREMANTLE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, retail, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on August 13, 2018

 

The JIM KIDD sportswear store in Fremantle’s Essex Street is leaving Fremantle and relocating to a huge warehouse near Perth airport.

It is a shame to lose another shop and I question the new location, as there is no way I will drive all the way to the airport to buy my next comfy walking shoes, so they are losing this customer.

Vacant shops are never a good look anywhere, but unfortunately a sign of the time everywhere, so I hope FREO NOW in collaboration with property owners will find a lot of creatives to move into empty retail premises and make them at least look attractive.

It would be nice if the City of Fremantle could allocate money for artists to at least paint windows of vacant shops and make the best out of a bad situation by creating a new art walk attraction in the CBD.

Velvet Sushi

 

Let’s finish Tuesday’s blog posts on a positive note. This is one of the reasons I love Fremantle!

What a stunning window display at the Velvet Sushi fashion boutique in Bannister Street.

If a few more shop owners took pride in their window dressing they might have less to complain about.

A funky new cafe and clothes shop has opened at Elder Place opposite the Fremantle railway station. The Calypso Warehouse looks inviting, cosy and cute, so check it out when you are down that way.

They sell women and men clothing, coffee and other things.

It is on the corner of the Wilson carpark and next to CODA architects.

Sadly further in town at the Piazza the Red Cherries coffee bar has closed but they now operate the cafe in the Fremantle Markets food yard section on weekends.

VERY FREO BLINCO STREET FLEA MARKET

Posted in fremantle, hospitality, markets by freoview on April 24, 2016

 

What a lovely atmosphere today at the Blinco Street Cafe FLEA MARKET in the very arty and hippy Fremantle Fibonacci Centre, and how nice to see so many people turn up to grab a bargain, listen to live music, catch up with friends and have an excellent coffee and meal at the cute little cafe.

I hope they will make this into a regular once a month event during the colder months.

If you haven’t been to the Blinco Street Cafe go and try it out. Tomorrow morning they will open at 4.30 am to cater for the people who attend the ANZAC DAY dawn service, so go and grab a cuppa on your way to Monument Hill! The cafe is only a three-minute walk away from it.
