TBC Flea

DSC_2256This past weekend I had the pleasure of taking part in my friend Amanda’s first flea market at her vegan bakery, Through Being Cool. This flea was particularly  more fun than previous fleas because it was filled with pals (yay pals!!!) I was vending along side Brendan who run’s the ever popular Explorer’s Press, flowers and garden designs by Lucy of Perrin and Rose, housewares and quirky knick knacks by Addy, art by Matt Darling, and zines by Permanent Sleep Press and Blood of the Young (i’m sure im missing a few people here, and i’m sorry!) It was so great to see the support that Amanda and all the vendors (myself included) received. It’s those types of days that I need to remind myself to step back for a second and really acknowledge how lucky I am, and how truly wonderful human beings can be. I feel so lucky to be surrounded by like-minded individuals who are all working so hard, and so creatively in life.

I didn’t end up taking that many pictures, but I do hope to go by the bakery on a regular ol’ day so I can share her delightful (entirely vegan) baked treats with you all, because Amanda bakes the best goodies! Vegan maple bacon donuts?! I mean, c’mon guys!!!












Parkdale Flea

DSC_0786Oh goodness guys! Thanks to all my (and Matt’s) lovely pals who came out to the Parkdale Flea on Sunday to give me a couple hellos, and even those cool pals that bought some of my stock! I somehow survived the evening before of way too much tagging and steaming, thanks to my seriously amazing and helpful boyfriend.

The day was filled with sunshine (but god awful wind), neat vendors selling handcrafted wood works, mini doughnuts (geeze louise I could have eaten 3 bags of those bad boys) smoothies/lemonades, beautiful antiques and vintage galore. I didn’t get to do too much browsing myself, because I was manning my booth alone most of the time, but that was quite alright. A gal, like myself, who loves to buy things I probably don’t need, should usually flee (ha!) temptation.

Vince and Josh (the organizers behind this here flea) plan to make this a monthly event. So keep an eye out, you wonderful people!DSC_0754 DSC_0762 DSC_0763 DSC_0766 DSC_0768 DSC_0769DSC_0785 DSC_0794 DSC_0777If only that gosh darn skirt fit me! But at least a pal ended up buying it, so I know it’s in good hands.DSC_0790
