I’m currently working with Tatiana C C Scott to document the history behind some of the well established shops across Melbourne.

It just featured in The Age which is crazy. I think it outlines my motivations pretty well. Basically, there’s lots of coverage about newer shops that are opening around Melbourne, which is great. I follow them all, and read them all. But, I also think there’s room for a website which is just dedicated to some of the older shops and the people who own and run them.

Contact me at talesofbrickandmortar@gmail.com. Please say hello, and recommend places that might be worth writing about! I’m hoping to cover a diversity of shops (and, in the near future, bars) across Melbourne.

Thanks for reading my ‘about’ page! (the content elsewhere is better)
