Men’s Pop Up Shop at Flock: June 8-16th!


Just in time for Father’s Day, we’ve planned something special for those dads, brothers, boyfriends & just plain friends that are so hard to buy for!

Three of our favourite Canadian designers – Blank, Voyou & Atelier B – are sending us goodies from their men’s collections and we’ll be using them to turn the classroom space in the basement of Flock into a great little place to shop for the men in your life!

Or, feel free to just send them in by themselves to search through the fun men’s undies, past seasons hoodies, hip street wear and current and past seasons made-in-canada men’s wear!  This pop-up shop will be part current stock and part trunk sale (think: discounts!) – don’t miss it! (-:

More details and a few sneak peeks can be found here.

This Thursday: Dalhousie St. Shopping Night!

We kept our biggest surprise for our last and surely craziest shopping night of the season…

hmmm...the prizes seem to be occupying the street...

This is a pic of the huge gift basket that some lucky shopper will win this Thursday night (Dec 15th) at the Occupy Dalhousie Street Holiday Shopping Night!  It is a bunch of goodies from each of the participating shops valued at over $300…wouldn’t that just top off your holiday perfectly?  You could give some of the goodies away…or, well, maybe keep them for yourself…we’ll never tell! (-:

So, don’t forget to stop by Workshop on Dec 15th for a chance to win it as well as an opportunity to let us help you find the perfect handmade gifts to put under your tree.  We will also be having festive drinks, goodies and other fun prizes! And…we will be doing 10% off the entire shop!  Want to know what the other Dalhousie St. shops are doing? You can find it all on our event page!

Can’t wait to see you Thursday – I’ll be the one mulling the cider!



Dalhousie St. Shopping Night ~ Dec 1st, Tonight!

i have been waiting patiently to turn the page of my calendar to december. and today is the day.

people who know me know how much i love the holidays! i love everything about the actual holidays themselves, but most of all, i love the month-long run up to Christmas! i love the twinkling lights in the shop windows, the soft snow falling and wetting my hair, i love window shopping with a steaming hot cup of coffee in my hand, the smell of pine…i even like the christmas carols. i love it all.

and so i was like a kid on Christmas morning (26 days early) when the ladies at workshop put up the handpainted papier mache Christmas balls (made by renee, one of our lovely and fun interns) in the window yesterday…just in time for TONIGHT, the big Dalhousie St. shopping night!

so, i hope to see each of you tonight at all of Dalhousie St.’s fabulous independent retailers getting a head start on Christmas! at workshop, there will be raffles, goodies, music and other fun and, best of all, 10% off everything in the store ~ tonight only! 6-9pm.

just one of the reasons that i love the holidays.
