The Archive, Market Street, Fremantle, Boutique Fashion Brands, Recycled Used Clothing

Check out The Archive on Market Street for great bargains by boutique fashion brands, both recycled and new:

The archive is a brand spanking new boutique in Fremantle and in my opinion, has the potential to be one of Fremantle’s best fashion stores. True to their name, the shop is an archive of used clothing. But don’t expect grubby Supre tanks or granny’s nighty. I’ve found Manning Cartell here for $59, Marc Jacobs shoes for $79, denim cut offs by Friend of Mine for an insane $59 and similarly priced designer ware. Are they insane or just generous? Who cares. Designer ware for mass-manufactured prices. Not complaining!

Thinking about the weekend already? We are – and looking forward to Rachel & Henry Climb a Hill’s album launch on Saturday night at Freo Arts Centre. A lot of nice things can be said about these guys, like this quote from Jennifer Peterson, X-Press Magazine:

Having forged a steady following in WA, playing gigs at Southbound and various haunts around Perth and Fremantle, Rachel & Henry Climb a Hill have frolicked onto the music scene with their debut EP First of a Few, an infectious pop confection, sure to be loved by indie darlings across the state. Telling tales of leap-frogging, kite-flying and lost loves, the melancholic local trio explore an eclectic mix of musical forms from folk rock to hip hop while still maintaining a strong twee pop sensibility. Sweet, playful, and always charming, First of a Few stands a very good chance of proving itself one of WA’s finest indie-pop releases of the year.

Rachel & Henry Climb a Hill’s debut album is called ‘The Little Things’ and will be launched with a vintage fair themed extravaganza. For more info check out facebook and get your tickets here.

The Big Cheese Returns

I’m not entirely sure why* but every year Galati A & Sons haul in an enormous block/log/sausage of cheese into their deli on Wray Avenue. I look forward to the cheese cutting ceremony.

*I am ready to be schooled on this matter.

Bathers Beach Boardwalk

I know it’s going to look amazing but it really doesn’t look like it’s going to be finished in time for the sailing championships. I have every confidence it will be finished, or will it?, no definitely finished… definitely.

Kings Square Sounds is free event that will get local young people and those delegates together and show off a little bit of Freo. Check out the flyer for the who, what, where when bits.
