New Melbourne Stockist - Asta Pubblica

Ginny & Jude feel like busy little bees this winter - especially now we have a stockist in Melbourne.
With a name which translates from Italian to ‘Public Sale’, the newly opened
Asta Pubblica at 355 St Georges Road, Fitzroy North, features hand-made local designs crafted from either re/used, re/cycled, local or natural materials.
With our penchant for re-purposing vintage and/or used found objects into new and functional modern accessories, Ginny & Jude feel quite at home amongst objects of a similar ethos.
This hybrid space is a mixture of gallery, retail, public art windows and office/meeting space. Packaging is minimal and great care is taken to reduce energy consumption the shop generates through reduced printed materials, displays developed from re/used materials and efficient lighting.

Catch the number 112 tram and hop off right outside - just look out for the shop window adorned with pianola scrolls and you'll know you're there.
Open: Saturdays 10 - 4pm weekly

Ginny & Jude at the Marsu Homme Artisan Guild

Mens shoe designer Christina Hammond and her label Marsu Homme decieded recently that the best way to get those lovely shoes of hers onto more feet was to surface for a short time through a little pop-up shop on Oxford Street.
The idea quickly grew from a small seed to a incorporate a number of different local artists and designers with a common aesthetic in what has become the Artisan Guild and Curiosity Shop.
Ginny & Jude are awful pleased to have been asked to be involved and we will be stocking the nooks and crannies of this alluring space with our feathered headpieces, select jewellery, knitted winter essentials and other curios.

Opening tomrrow and running until July 31st there's ample time to pop past to escape from the winter cold into a land of the extraordinary.
263 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst.

see you there! g&j
