Oh wonderful minions!

So, despite the ass weather, turn-out was pretty good at The Crafty Minions Sale at Aqua Books on Saturday! It was such an amazing collection of unique handmade goodies alongside the coolest in vintage and retro finds from clothing to kitchen ware to bird cages! I found the coolest pair of knee high hand knit vintage sox for FOUR DOLLARS!! A steal of a deal. Not to mention a full set of vintage glasses and a set of Pyrex bowls that I'm having a love affair with already. Kami of Marathon 1981 took some great shots of the sale. Check out her blog for some visuals of our day!

I'm sure that Aqua Books is now going to be the new venue for craft and vintage sales for the folks looking for all things awesome and unique. Kelly Hughes has a great thing going over there. If you haven't been to an event there yet, GO! He's got something going on every day plus it's a fantastic bookstore AAAAAND you gotta eat at Eat!, their little bistro in the back of the bookstore. It's a destination for a day out with Mom or your honey or the girls or just a day for yourself!

The next Crafty Minions Sale is May 28th so don't miss it! I'm also taking part in the Artisan's Market put on by The Mantioba Craft Museum and Library at the West End Cultural Centre. It's on Saturday April 9th and Sunday April 10th from 10am to 4pm. Come support handmade!

Love it. I love that they're happening more often too. Nice to have a venue for crafters to go to more regularly than just seasonally!
