Stuff I Did Last Week
Had a full social calender last week. First off, Mr. Andrew and myself performed as Dick Wolfs at Sketch Com-Aggeddon on Wednesday. Thursday was my thrift hunt expedition. Friday, I went with Jessica to represent Covet Garden at the Toronto Etsy meet and greet in honour of their new Canadian Community manager. It was useful and informative and the space was prettily decorated (see below) and filled with tasty snacks. But it was hot as Hades in there. I had to buy a change of clothing on my way back to the Comedy Bar to see Mr. Andrew perform with Shoeless.
We met some cool craftspeople, including milliner Lori-Anne Krausewitz of La Krause, shown here modelling one of her gorgeous chapeaux.
Speaking of hats, on Sunday I met up with my friend and fellow vintage aficianado Becky to check out the Gadabout storage sale. There were some very cool, very vintage pieces like the 1940s hats and hat boxes pictured above and the shabby but still spectacular Victorian topper pictured below.
I’m a little sad that I couldn’t fit into the 1970s or ’80s era purple dress pictured above. I took a picture of it as part of my “catch and release” approach to thrifting. I wonder if and how I can recreate it.
And finally, my nephew Justin was in town for the the 14th Annual Northern Ink Xposure Tattoo Show. He was an arm model. That’s his new ink pictured above. We also went to see Flaming Lips at NXNE. It was a balloon-a-palooza!
