montreal & back (part one)

back in montreal for good night, day at puces pop, & we couldn't have asked for nicer weather (although all the untimely sunshine was maybe not the ideal weather for selling alpaca collars), ...& even nicer friends (of course, new friends too),  drinking in the parks, sharing food w/ some of the very  best folks i know(& met), & studio visits too (montreal is always a source of enormous inspiration on all the senses). miss you already montreal.
to be continued (rest of photos here)
(above photo detail, w/ olivia mew, also a vendor at puces pop, & i'm so happy with my "dry her eyes" hankie from her stall, sometimes embarrassingly fitting for me. as well, finally get to wear out my wren paint splatter dress, it was on sale months ago, i just couldn't resist)

(above & below photo details ,also, outside of the puces pop venue, our very good friends sarah aka our hostess-extraordinare in montreal & izzy too.)

(above & below, montreal has the best food available for every taste, usually for cheap & in any neighborhood, ontario has a  lot to learn from this. olivia & izzy w/ amazing bagels on st-laurent. i'm taking a break from the stall, amazing pizza just across the street)

(above & below photo details of our vendor neighbors/friends , i admit it i have such a huge girl crush on audrey cantwell, i'm sure it is no surprise to her either, at her her booth, just across for ours,   for tarantula sisters & ovate, was shared with her friend maude nibelungen, also a talented knit designer. as well, my long time friend samantha of pinpals, with the other half of painpals sarah, who i finally met this time around)

(gorgeous & sweet lara visiting our stall, of montreal shop citizen vintage, in a meaford dip dyed cowl)

(above & below, waiting on our roti outside, & doesn't sam have the best tote. took our food back to sarah's studio, where she stores an insane amount of curated montreal vintage for her shop, & where we invariably tried on outfits & drank, can you blame us?!)
