okay so I've never been on the computer for so long - just finished posting new items in the vintage shop - I wanted to leave you with a few things before the weekend. I have never had so much to write about. I have a few sneak peeks from the fabric collection Roisin and I are working hard at. We are in the midst of setting up the website (will update you later) - decided that writing for two blogs was just too much for the both of us. along with the fabric we will also be offering buttons/badges, scrap packs, bias tape and kits. we don't usually sell other peoples work in the shop - but I couldn't resist these pieces from Alissa Kloet - my lovely intern last year - She is off to further her studies at NSCAD.The image below is her booth at the Toronto Outdoor Show. we've been crazy busy with online sales and I go to the post office everyday - I decided to walk down palmerston and what do I see on the sidewalk to be thrown out this beautiful cabinet - I run back to the shop - get john to get our dolly and he wheels it back - I was so excited that I already filled the drawers with my bits and bobs. Sorry - it won't be for sale - in case you were wondering it is vintage Office Specialty. Okay time to sleep and stay away from the computer. Have a great weekend - psst. Also next week I am going to be selling a vintage piece that might appeal to some of you - you'll have to come back to see what it is - and also next week - there is going to be an a m a z i n g giveaway - to celebrate being in Play all Day - let's just say it will inspire you to make something.
