We love hearing people tell us their stories about Bimbo and want to hear more stories about Chris, Carol or the good old days. Throughout its 35-year history, Bimbo has sold some really amazing pieces of artwork designed and constructed by local South Australian and Australian artists.
Peter Day sent us in this awesome photo of a wire sculpture he bought from Bimbo in the late 80’s. He saw this piece when he was walking home one night from the Ex and decided he just had to have it. It now sits proudly in the entrance to his home and is one of the first things people see when they walk in. This wire artist had work featured in Bimbo throughout the 80’s but we can’t remember his name. If you have any idea, seriously, drop us a line.
Tony Kellie bought this original wooden stool by local Adelaide artist Robin Turner. Robin created amazing sculptures
from recycled native timbers. This one of a kind piece has become even better with age and is still one of Tony’s favourite purchases from Bimbo today. With the passing of Robin Turner a few years ago these pieces are now a tribute to an amazing Adelaide artist, who will be sorely missed by the art community and his fans.
In keeping with tradition, Bimbo still stocks works by a range of amazingly talented Adelaide and Australian artists. New to the store, this stunning mixed media piece, by a local Adelaide Artist, is constructed from exquisite antique textiles. With a rich backstory, this piece is compiled of stunning textiles that the artist collected from the Silk Road during her travels in India and China.

Last Friday Tony Kellie was sitting with a group of mates at the Exeter Hotel in Rundle Street East, surprise, surprise they were discussing old times. One of the things that came up was the changing face of Rundle Street. It was noted that the two main-stayers were our host The Exeter and Bimbo Gift Shop down the street. Bimbo started life as East End Imports 35 years ago about the same time the Ex was transformed into The “cool” pub.
In the group was Peter Day, Tony Kellie, Simon Hackett and various others who are all long-term Exeter and Bimbo Customers.
Pete started with a great story, about how he had bought a bloody big wooden Balinese statue (of a Duck), with a revolving head that stood close to a metre tall! He bought it to get back into the good books with his then wife who subsequently split and took the duck.
Simon Hackett’s favourite gift is a red kids chair in the shape of a hand which he gave to his granddaughter, who loves to sit in it and now her Dad, (his Son-In-Law) has now taken to repose in, all 6ft 3 inches of him.
Bimbo’s Owner Carol
