New Ownership of Ochre Art Supplies.
Ochre Art Supplies was the shop at the front of the Square Edge building for many years. The original owner sold and the couple who took over sadly went into receivership.
In April 2019 Fluffymilk.com purchased this iconic business from the receivers.
..And so begins the significant project of turning a name back into a thriving art supply shop.
I look forward to developing a shop and service offering that you can come to enjoy and rely on.

Plans & Progress
April has been all about getting services put on. Ordinary things like power, phone and eftpos...... are followed by more difficult decisions like what Point of Sale systems will work with the accounting system & the courier system.
Next has been a complete work through of what stock is here. This has shown up a few weird and wonderful treasures. There will be a section of obsolete lines once I get the online shopping set up.
I am in the process of starting 'Friends of Ochre Art Supplies'. A loyalty program for people who subscribe to my mailing list. Once all the back ground work is completed this will also discount art supplies in the online shopping cart. Watch this space!
Next up will be 'Beautiful Junk-Mail Project'
This is a three fold project.
- Profiling a collection of local and near local artists
- Offering a regular prize draw to participants
- Causing my Junk-mail to be more beautiful and un-ordinary
