Christmas Space Available!

I just got a message in the comments about a space available for a xmas mart! Read Bellow and also only contact them if you are serious!

We have an empty commercial space on Barton just around the corner from James St. North.
We are wondering if you know someone who would be interested in setting up a Christmas Market with a number of artisans. It’s approximately 1300 sq. ft. with 20′ frontage. Newly renovated, nice and clean. I’m thinking that if someone was interested in organizing this it would fit as many as 8 or 10 vendors with tables/display racks.
I’m sorry if this is an inappropriate post but I thought your blog would be a good place to start.
Thanks

Yarn Bombing Christmas Reminders Mulberry and other Blogs!

Ok so the spec has  a nice article about some local Yarn Bombing and how its all about the good vibes, if your down for this sort of graphitti with a softer edge and no paint fumes you may want to goto The Brain on Wednesday nights…. or Skydragon on Monday nights…. speaking of skydragon they have a Garage Sale coming up you may want to check out! also a craft fair but nothings on their website….

Also if you want to give a nice gift go local the printstudio, the factory,  the brain, mulberry, mixed media, white elephant and many more local businesses have gift certificates!

The Printstudio has a lot of nice courses you may want to take!

Also discovered a nice twitter page/blog all about Hamilton! They have some cool pics like this one from Mulberry Cafe’s after dark!

Also a bit of a blast from the past when Atomica Tattoo still lived on James St North it had some amazing art shows! Take a look at a video from one of those, its The Etcha Sketch Master! (fyi the atomica link goes to Petor’s new website/where you can go to see him and get a tattoo!)

Smash in Toronto

So if you live or goto Toronto on a regular basis you still might not know about this amazing store there called Smash! I first found out about it due to some friends from Sheridan having a group show there. Its filled with beautiful odds and end lovingly picked up and waiting to be placed in your way too cool living or working space…… take a look at them

Famous Folks I know

Congrats to Matt Jelly for a awesome Garbage Crawl, he even got a mention in the local paper!

Another big note was the interview with Jane and Holly of White Elephant in Toronto Craft Alert!! Go check out the article!

Also another thing of note was a article in the spectator about a Steam Punk Couple! Its pretty awesome and although I’m not into it at all I would love to see tons of Hamilton folks into this cause somehow I think it fits!
