Eventual Events

Filly and Foal will be at the new Brick Works Flea this Sunday (Aug 4), and the Mercer Union Small Press Book Fair Curio Vintage Sale the following weekend (Aug 11). I know I've said it before, but it really is so lovely to do these kinds of events and to meet people face to face! I'll have lots of new little outfits for sale, and a button-making station as usual. Hopefully see you there?

Filly and Foal has a new online shop! For those of you that don't live in the GTA, now you can buy our stuff from the comfort of your computer or mobile device! You also might be thinking, "Hey! The Filly and Foal shop looks just like the Filly and Foal blog!" and you'd be right because we like to do things matchy matchy here! And since we like to make things easy, you can also find a direct link to the shop conveniently placed at the top of this page :)

Some selections from my friend Ruby's ongoing project: "A portrait of my child once a week, every week in 2013". It was hard to choose just a few, because they're all so beautiful, but you can follow Ruby's progress on her tumblr and blog 

Here's one more of Casper and his dad, Steve, that is not part of the series, but I love it so much:

Blown Away

Yesterday Filly and Foal participated in our third outdoor market of the summer, at the brand new Parkdale Flea. The weather was beautiful for most of the day, with the exception of a few moments where I thought my whole tent was going to take flight, and the half hour after the sale the when the whole sky opened up. But by the end of the day, I was the one that was blown away (pun intended) by how lovely it's been to talk face to face with customers, and other vendors, and I feel like I'm learning so much. Thanks everyone for helping make these experiences so valuable, and for all the help from good friends and family :)
