Welcome Lovely Caroline!

I think it goes without saying that we adore new designers…I mean, really, who wouldn’t want to dig into a box of beautiful handmade things they had never seen before?

It’s paradise, trust me, just paradise.

So yesterday, a little box arrived by Worskhop & Flock‘s latest love, Caroline Villamarin.  It was full to the brim with beautifully hand made fabric studs, brooches and giant paperclips (cause who wouldn’t need one of those beauties?)!

She also sent a bunch of her goodies to give away (another one of our favourite things!) so keep an eye on our Facebook pages (Workshop, Flock) & Twitter (@ws_boutique, @flock_boutique) for the next week or so and some of them could be yours! (-;

Tastes of Wellington West & Our Lucky Winners!

It’s entirely possible that Tastes of Wellington West is my favourite day of the year…when else to do have a steady stream of fantastic people through your shop, hundreds of kids pushing the limits of pipe cleaner art just outside, and full licence to bring your daughter to work and let her and her friends run wild handing out balloons and running up and down the shop staircases?

Madness, plain and simple.  Good old fashioned awesome crazy heart stopping laughter inducing madness.  I loved every minute of it. (-:

On top of all of that craziness we somehow managed to run a contest and here are the winners:

- Winner of the Draw Me A Lion Colouring Card Set: Amy Lawley

- Winner of the Colour Me Postcards: Helen Cleasby

- Winner of the Seahorse print by Eufemia Bella: Heather Fogo

- Winner of the $50 Gift Certificate for Flock: Lucy Starnino

A huge thank you to everyone who came out: you made our day!  We are so happy to be in such a fun-loving, supportive neighbourhood! (-:

Fall Trunk Sale: Sept 26th-30th…Get Ready!

Fall seems to be setting in and it’s a little too chilly to head to the beach, so we’re all huddled away here at Workshop gearing up for our wild and wonderful FALL TRUNK SALE: September 26th-30th! The big opening party will be on Thursday September 26th at 6pm where there is sure to be the best of deals, some fun goodies for munchin’, extra changerooms and all the all around joy of getting a sweet deal on handmade goodies!

The fun doesn’t end there though, because we’ve decided to officially hold the sale over for the whole weekend – this is for those of you who give us those sad puppy dog faces when you can’t make it the night of the event.  And because the sale is going to go on for 5 days, we have even more designers involved and even more great canadian made stuff at fantastic prices!  But don’t forget that on Monday we start packing things up and then everything goes back to the designers, so don’t miss it!

For those of you who are new to the cult of the trunk sale, here are the basics: once in the Spring and once in the Fall Workshop invites a few of their favourite designers to participate in our trunk sale: they ship us tons and tons of great clothes, accessories and jewelry which are from past seasons collections, slightly damaged items, weird sizes (the xs people clean up at this event!), samples, etc! Our designers get to clean out their studio spaces and our customers get to pad their closets!  The deals are great – up to 70% off!

More details and sneak peeks can be found on our facebook event page!

Put it in your calendar and don’t forget to join us!
