Lazy Sunday

It's Sunday here at the store, and after a crazy busy day yesterday with all the shoppers from Leslieville Stomp, we're actually enjoying the lazy pace here today. Friday was crazy too, with Sarah Richardson filming here for her new show Sarah 101. She loved the store and she and Tommy (her sidekick) were pretty funny when the cameras were rolling. She really liked the Spanner set, but only wanted the chairs, and I didn't want to break up the set so it was a no sale (the set ended up selling on Saturday anyway, so it all worked out). Sarah did end up buying a few things for one of her clients, including a lovely piece of Murano art glass, a pair of brass trays (Brass is Class, babies!) and a few photographic prints from Maureen O'connor. Maureen is a Toronto photographer who also collects vintage negatives and slides and reprints the images using old school darkroom techniques. We have a few of her framed prints in right now, as well as matted prints with no frames. Really popular is her series on the construction of the TD centre here in Toronto.

Here are some of her framed prints, ranging in price from $90 for unframed prints to $125 for framed prints.
Stop by the store and check out her collection, and we'll tell you the ones Sarah bought!
See you at the store!
