L’été est la saison pour le ménage intense, les boutiques dans le marcher By et la sangria dans le jardin. Si l’on désire marier ménage et boutiques, je vous recommande d’aller faire un tour au Wunderkammer sur la rue Dalhousie. C’est une boutique éclectique, inétressante et toujour surprenante.

The store’s efforts to re-use vintage jewellery and leather goes to show how being green can actually be very cool. If you have some old jewellery, accessories or even wallpaper hanging around your house or apartment, the artists would love to have it. And you could get up to 30% off your purchase. How can anyone resist that? And the staff/artists are absolutely fabulous. Upon calling the store, I had a great conversation with Nathan who was nice enough to take the time to explain the whole concept of the Spring Cleaning Event happening on June 14th, from 6 - 9 pm.

The whole idea of the swapping sale began with the artists going to the United States to dig up vintage components in order to recycle and give them a second life. Now that the store has been open for about 6 or 7 months, the owners wanted to see what they could do with customers’ broken chains, a lone earring or even bigger items such as wallpaper and postcards. The event is meant to be interactive.

Perso, j’ai tellement hâte d’aller fouiller dans mes vieilles boîtes afin de voir ce que je peux trouver. Je serai curieuse de voir ce qu’ils pourront en faire.
