Fun at the Festival

More than 200 unique buttons were made by visitors to the Junction Arts Festival!

For on-going enjoyment, the Wise Daughters button-maker is available to rent.

New for October

Here are just a few of the new items now available:
  • Gorgeous, cozy upcycled patchwork scarves by Betty Harris.
  • Screen-printed vintage ties by Epidemic Clothing.

The upcycled/sustainable theme continues with t-shirts manufactured in Toronto, hand-painted with beautiful landscapes by Toronto artist Philippe Ménard.
