E5 Evan Bradhurst

Episode 5 Jamie sits down with Evan Crofton Bradhurst from Apologue

Our fifth guest for the season is one of my favorite people in the Melbourne antique scene!

Welcome, Evan Crofton Bradhurst from Apologue in Fitzroy North.. After leaving school and working as a graphic designer, Evan turned his side hustle of selling antiques into a full-time reality and has now been dealing in decorative arts for 12 years.

Apologue is a beautiful little shop filled with eclectic beauty! Evan’s collection is a handsome mix of English, French, Asian and African furniture, decorative and applied arts. I was drawn to Apologue because it isn’t your run of the mill antique store, Evan makes brave furnishing choices and utilises a vast range of materials and mediums.

We recorded this episode over two separate sessions due to a clashing calendar, so I sincerely hope you enjoy listening to this wide-ranging conversation as much we enjoyed recording it!

Trade secrets all round!

Here Evan and I discuss how rewarding it is to buy and restore a piece of furniture, and how instantly gratifying brass can be!
