No, I am not redecorating! I am preparing a display for the holiday market: Shop the SLC. This event takes place at Ryerson University’s Student Learning Centre at 341 Yonge Street in the first floor Amphitheatre during November 20th-24th from 10am-4pm.
Shop the SLC brings Ryerson students, alumni, staff and faculty together to showcase their home-grown talent and entrepreneurial spirit through a handmade craft market. Have a look at the list of vendors, showcasing their unique, one-of-a-kind products, perfect gifts for those hard to shop for people on your holiday list.
I will be selling my hand dyed scarves, placemats, napkins, and handmade cards. In order to display my scarves, I’ve taken an idea from Amy of Amy’s Place Handmade, and repurposed an old lampshade. By removing the fabric cover and leaving the wire, I will be able to display a selection of my hand dyed shibori scarves next week.
This shade is attached to an old surveyor’s stand that my husband purchased. It had been converted into a light fixture. I think it makes a great display stand!
Testing out the display with some of my scarves. I have many new shibori scarves in silk, cotton gauze, and a wool/silk blend. I will be bringing mixed media greeting cards, small zippered pouches, indigo napkins, placemats and more. There will be lots to see!
Come out and find a unique gift or treat yourself to one-of-a-kind items; from fashion and food to handmade crafts and custom artwork, there is something for everyone. Each day will feature different Ryerson vendors, including me!
Hope to see you next Wednesday November 22, 2017 from 10-4. Drop by and say hello!
Summer is a time for enjoying the outdoors. This Labour Day weekend spend time at the new Trillium Park at Ontario Place. I will be displaying my hand dyed original scarves along with 30 other vendors at the Urban Market. This event coincides with the 150th Anniversary Festival at Ontario Place.
