    Vanbar (Carlton) is moving!!

    I dropped off my big bag of C41 holiday rollfilm yesterday for processing, and Lachie informed me that they're moving later this year to somewhere in Fitzroy - pros: the new premises will be bigger and better, cons: they will no longer be within walking distance of my work... The other details I have temporarily forgotten, after being distracted by attractive lightweight Gitzo tripods...

    The other advantage of Carlton is that it's a very short tram ride from the CBD. It's already two tram rides for me, so if they are any further away it looks like I'll be restricted to Saturdays only :-(

    But it's encouraging that they are moving to larger premises.

    Well it's not quite so close to ME, but I'd miss sloping down that sleazy little ally where the last hold outs of film and chemistry conceal their nefarious trade.

    Confession: I bought a Fuji X100 (shock horror) digital camera from them a few weeks ago.

    Ross, nice description. The one and only time I've ever been in there I was gobsmacked with amount of film-related stuff they had. I couldn't stay long, sadly.

    Hmm I did think the Carlton store did look different, kinda empty. "Last week" But did have some nice new stuff I was looking for. Actually I think Vanbar started in the Carlton location ?

    Does this mean there is going to be a moving out sale?

    Moving in about a month, they told me. Too bad, the current shop is in walking distance from my office.
