day one:(to be cont'd)
sadly, its post-field trip now, & i feel lonely for the company of all the gals & my boys too! i wish i had taken more photos, & a lot of these were taken by others, good thing too, it was a nice surprise to see them on my camera later. of course, i was a nervous wreck inside, but i think w/ the help of others it all worked out just fine. i loved my lil shop, made up of just a few items, a rolling rack, a borrowed rug (from my moms laundry room, she just doesn't appreciate it i suppose, i love the designs), enid's chalkboard (which was meant as a shop name sign, but since i forgot those pesky stickers for pricing it became a price list), a black metal half body form (borrowed), a folding table (borrowed from dave at mixed media down the street), a family crocheted lace tablecloth , a portfolio that jeff gave to me (thanks babe) & images printed for free from his boyfriend & my blue mountain ashtray as chocolate candy dish, along with some fold up ikea chairs.
i was rushed setting up, & so in all the excitement of the moment, the shop was never photographed fully stocked up, oh well.
field trip pop-up shop & those included & invoved: victoire (from ottawa), white elephant (local hamilton shop owners), robber & fieldguided (both from toronto), myself/ yarnovermovement (from local hamilton) & pre-loved (from toronto& montreal)
( my own modest & humble yarnovermovement shop... )
hey there hollie of white elephant. also stephanie of beaux mondes dropped in too, & it was so nice to meet in person for the first time. (these w/ stephanie were some of the surprise photos i discovered later, thanks greg)
& millie of know your ghosts gallery popped in too, & even snuck us in beers later, at the end of the night.
(above) & yes indeed, i am wearing my own leeds halter bra in verlaine nude!
the space was amazing, & i was beyond impressed with everyone's shop, so much personality can be seen, just so perfect. above robber, & of course robin+erin=robber (do you get it?!), i've never met robin & she is just as kick ass as erin. below, anabela (hiding there somewhere) & geoff set up fieldguided with the most gorgeous roses & those crates, oh man. & lastly those ladies of victoire had a shop that looked as if it had been home forever, especially envy the vintage photos, books & trophy displays. ps. i have huge girl crushes for the ottawa gals, & the first night i could barely talk to them, i felt so love sick. ok gush gush gush....blah, blah,blah....pfbbttt
& best end to the first night drinking wine at white elephant as the hosts! & i'ii post more tomorrow. (more photos & day two soon)
