Bookies tote board

bookie board

This was a fun find from the last buying trip. It was originally used at Rockhampton Race Track and its got the knocks and bruises to show for it. A great display piece for the wall of the study or games room.

Available in our shop in Newtown.

    March – What’s in Store?


    It’s been either very hot or very rainy for the first few weeks of March which has felt like a real shift in the seasons and motivated me to make lots of changes in store in readiness for the colder autumnal and winter months. The main changes are as follows:

    • Lots of lamps and mirrors
    • A new copper and brass section
    • A clean up of the vinyl records section – now predominantly 70’s and 80s music
    • A focus on small furniture pieces
    • New artworks
    • A choice selection of vintage posters
    • A bevy of vintage radios.
    • A few more taxidermy birds for the natual history section.

    March – What’s in Store?


    So much of what I do here at Bloodworth Bellamy is about presenting carefully selected objects and I get so swept up in presentation and I forget that not everyone knows the history of the objects in the shop. Part of what I enjoy when I am sourcing is hearing the history behind an item and if it remains anonymous a few handy internet searches can often provide information on the maker, when it was made and for what reason. If I genuinely don’t know a thing about the object I’ll confess.

    Hip Hip Decay

    BloodworthBellamy is extremely proud to have an exhibition of Hip Hip Decay.

    Hip Hip Decay is the sculptural work of Suzanne McRae, a Ballarat Australian based artist. The mixed media pieces depict animal and anthropomorphic creatures, made with vintage and aged fabrics, antique buttons, staining and fraying.

    Suzanne McRae graduated from the University of Ballarat in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts Ceramics. Over the next decade she moved into costume and fashion, operating shops and web businesses sewing for clientele near and far. Most recently she has returned to her beginnings in sculpture and ceramics, coupled with her textile experience, to create pieces which are finding a place in galleries and the homes of people who are transfixed by their character and charm.
