A lovely customer in the store the other day told me that my sister's screen printed tees are getting quite a following. I'll have to let her know she has fans (if she doesn't read this first) and we just got a new batch! Here are some of the colours and prints available.....
Those are cute little buttons on that green tee.....
We've also started our summer markdowns! That means lots of gorgeous stuff on sale so pop in soon!!
If you've been in the store lately you probably immediately noticed the gorgeous new photo art we have up on our walls. It's hard to believe but these beauties were actually taken at the little Courtenay fair over by the Driftwood mall this spring. Local photographer Mike LeBlanc has really worked some of his magic!
I'm afraid though that my photos of his canvases really don't do them any justice ...... sigh....... you'll just have to come in and see them in person!
The smaller framed photos that we had up before were also Slipstream Images and you can check out more of Mike LeBlanc's amazing work at: www.slipstreamimages.com. Not only is Mike a talented photographer and a great guy to support.... he's also got fantastic business cards!
Market Day is this Saturday, July 16th, and we'll have a booth on 5th Street from 9am to 7pm with loads of great Market Day deals! You can find our booth on 5th between Cliffe and Duncan.......we're hoping for some sunshine!
Our Early Bird Market Day Sale starts tomorrow! Just for you early birds we'll have lots of summer clothing already on sale (with lots of summer still ahead of us) and we're even going to include a couple of jewellery and accessory lines in the fun! That's this Friday, July 15th, from 11am - 5pm at the store.
The lovely bird above is from one of several new handmade cards we have in the store by Plain Jane Designs. Yes, that is stitching and fabric on those cards!
If you're heading to Market Day this Saturday you might need this new a.d.e. Design bag Adrienne just brought in........she's called it the "Shopping-all-day Tote".....
It has vintage buttons, a gorgeous lining and two large inside pockets.....
Another new a.d.e. Design bag - locally made here in the Comox Valley.....
This Generations of Betty tote, also handmade locally, would be perfect for Market Day!
These two Generations of Betty pillows are currently decorating the store......
I don't think you need a pillow for Market Day (maybe after?) but aren't they gorgeous!
See you at Market Day everyone - or tomorrow you early birds!
Yup, it's true........thanks to those of you who lovingly encouraged me to make a facebook page for the store I have officially caved under the peer pressure! It's my first time on facebook though so helpful tips and suggestions are more than welcome and we would be thrilled if you would share the page with anyone who might be interested. Find us at:
Melow describes their summer collection with three words....."Comfort, Fluidity, Lightness". Sounds like some of their pieces would be perfect for Music Fest this weekend......if the sun is out.......and definitely perfect for the rest of the summer as well!
The Gaia front crossed dress/tunic is 100% linen and super cute on it's own or over pants. It's shown here with the Genevieve cardigan which we have in khaki.
We also have this cotton Melow front crossed tank in sage.....
And the Ginger top.....
