Long weekend! Canadian Thanksgiving! I've had quite a busy couple of weeks and am looking forward to doing almost nothing this weekend. After being so busy a low-key weekend (and, sadly, grad project proposal writing) sounds a-ok with me. I'll be making some new jewelry to take to my newest consignment shop here in Vancouver (Two of Hearts on Main Street) and to my other shops, Dream and Little Dream, recently voted Best Local Designer Clothing Store in the Georgia Straight's Best of Vancouver 2010. You should definitely stop by Dream this weekend if you're in Gastown and check out all of the great new fall pieces they have in stock! I really love being a part of shops that specialize in local designers. Both Dream and Two of Hearts sell exclusively local goods, which is really great for local designers and artists, not to mention community-minded local shoppers. If you do find yourself in Gastown this weekend I highly recommend lunch at Finch's, simply because it's amazing! I just went there for the first time (how have I not been there before?) and the Applewood smoked cheddar baguette was incredible. It's worth going, just don't forget to leave room for Thanksgiving dinner!
