Yesterday, Mr Blue Calla kindly took a day off work to help me setup my space at the Arts Market. It was a bit of a juggle with kids needing to be picked up from school, van rentals, installing drywall (I do not like drills) but I managed and I am very happy with the end result!
It feels great having my own little space in a store that will actually force me to leave my house sometimes. I plan on checking up every Wednesday to make sure my items are neat and tidy after the weekend shoppers have been by.
I met some wonderful fellow artists while I was there. My neighbour Krystin from everything you do is a balloon was there also setting up. She is very talented with upcycling vintage furniture. Maybe she will let me take photos of her space and show off her amazing work.
My new space! (Oh yes, and me - slouching and wearing my comfy yoga pants)
If you live in Toronto, please feel free to drop by and check out all of the handmade goodies at The Arts Market which is located at 1114 Queen St East (between Pape and Jones) right in Leslieville.
