local treasure

This past weekend, while heading out early Saturday morning in search of buttery pastries to bring for a brunch date with some good friends I don’t see very often, I noticed some signs directing to an arts and craft show not far from my house (literally, it was at the end of the major street that I live off) by the park by the lake.

I was a bit surprised to see the signs, knowing very well that where they directed to was a residential area surrounded by the park.  So I decided to follow them to see what was this surprise art show was all about.

To my surprise and delight it was a show organized by a handful (maybe 10 or so) local artisans set up on the property of one of the cutest, most cottage-looking, aqua-coloured homes in the neighbourhood. It was quite charming. It was a fantastic setting for the cute little show, filled with art of all kinds, pottery, silver jewellery, and even a fibre artist who created the most beautiful woven table linens and tea towels.

It was such a pleasure to discover a cozy show like that in such a setting and practically outside my front door! I didn’t make any purchases, as I spent my shopping budget on Friday, but I did get a chance to talk to some of the local artisans and get my crafty inspiration for the day!
