Main Farmer's Market!
This Saturday May 12th, we’ll be at the Main Farmer’s Market in Old Ottawa East and we’re super happy to be there almost every Saturday for the entire season this year!
Come and check it out!
Where: Saint Paul University, 223 Main Street, in Old Ottawa East.
When: Saturdays from 9am – 2pm.
Chinatown Remixed presents one continuous art gallery in . . . Ottawa’s Chinatown. The month-long celebration of art exhibits original artwork in unusual & diverse venues — jewelry stores, travel agencies, grocery stores, and cafés. More than 40 artists will show their work in 40 businesses along Somerset Street West.
Colin White (http://colinwhitestudio.com/
) is showcasing his latest collection at our shop and we are thrilled! We first met Colin at Raw Sugar during their 2010 Christmas craft show and have been big fans of his bold, detailed, and locally-inspired sketches ever since. Here's some info on his collection:
"Confectionaries: Remixed are paper weavings made using test prints from my original Confectionaries series.
Over the course of printing the Confectionaries series in 2011, I collected the "scrap" test prints, with the intention to turn them into a project. In January 2012, the artist centre where I printed this series suffered a flood, and has been unavailable since. Unable to print (at least at this subsidized studio), I began cutting and weaving the tests into original pieces. Thus, Confectionaries: Remixed."

When: The GRAND OPENING is Saturday, May 12th, 1:30pm – 5pm. Exhibitions continue until June 12th.
At the opening, we'll be giving out samples of our soap and we'll have some Lavender Limeade to sip while you browse and chat. It's the perfect time to pick up a great Mother's Day gift as well! If you stop by the shop Saturday the 12th or Sunday the 13th and buy one of our gift baskets, you will get a coupon for $5 off your next $25 (or more) purchase :) We'll see you there!
