mirvish and kensington

This Sunday we decided to explore Mirvish Village and Kensington Market — two places we hadn’t visited in ages. I’m saddened at the neighbourhood’s loss of David Mirvish Books but all good things must come to an end.

A must see is Karen Found It.  I loved just about everything in this store. Completely my style of vintage collectables from furniture to dishware.  Sadly I am on a budget and left with my credit card in tact.  Also worth a mention is Twice Found – a store with a more 1960s/modern focus.

We decided to head down to Kensington Market for some lunch.  I had forgotten what a cornucopia of gastric delights Kensington has to offer –cheese, chocolate, empanadas, choros!

Weekends in Kensington are great for street vendors and sidewalk sales.  I wanted to purchase an awesome high side table for the gallery from Orbital Arts but it was already sold. Arrg. Note worthy shopping: Good Egg.  Good stuff.  Books, cookware, handmade craft, design, artsy stuff. Unique gifts.

The true reason we went to Kensington (besides lunch) was because Telephone Booth Gallery is currently exhibiting embroidered scenes of Kensington Market by artist Shuyu Lu.

Check out Shuyu Lu’s works for yourself on our website.

Pictures from Laura Peturson’s opening reception on Saturday, October 16th are now posted online on Facebook. Thanks to everyone that came out!

Hope to see you soon.
