The Big Trip!

What can we say about Toronto except that twice a year, for 48 hours each time, we are gathered up in its massive hug of indie designers, great restos and fun adventures…

It's already spring in the Distillery District!

Distill, a great shop carrying the best of Canadian design. Also know as "where we spent all of our money".

The very end of our 7 hours at the One of A Kind Show...no matter how many times we go, we always still manage to find something great!

Thank you Toronto (and a huge thanks to the 30 of our designers who greeted us with smiles and hugs!) – you always show us such a great time!

the big road trip!

so christina and i picked up and headed to toronto last thursday in her dad’s fancy new shiny blue bullet like matrix (thanks dick!) to go and hang with our designers at the one of a kind show!

i could fill pages with trip details (like when we almost ran out of gas and ended up hitching to brockville with 40 pairs of candi factory undies and a box of eikcam ceramics) but instead i’ll just tell you all of the lovely goodies that we saw (and bought)!

jenn-portrait

jennifer glasgow, lovely as ever and in desperate need of a pee break (those shows sure can be long!), was wearing her new jersey dress – super cute, kelly green, with huge pockets and a tree print…undeniably the pick of summer! we should be getting them soon!

candi factory

candance of candi factory surprised us this show by handing us a huge bag full of her amazing undies! she, as a mother of two (two!) is a busy lady and we were honoured to get them…come over and get yourself a pair, they are certainly back by popular demand!

eikcam

grace lee, the amazing ceramicist filling much of flock’s housewares section, also gave us a box of goodies – casserole dishes, vases and mugs with lovely and unusual prints…perfect for hosting this summer!

these are only a few of the fab items we brought back and had promised to us at the show – you’ll have to come in and see the rest for yourselves!

see you there!
