All the Rage

Sam and I have been stocking our reconstructed clothes at a store called The Rage in Toronto's Kensington market since about the end of April. Our stuff has been doing really well in the area and we're loving being a part of such an amazingly cool neighbourhood in T.O. We haven't been back since our first stock-up of 50+ items so we promised that we would go back as soon as we had time... Of course, without a steadfast deadline, we were putting off the restock to work on other projects.

With the upcoming G20 summit happening in Toronto though, we decided we HAD to go before the road closures started happening. So we decided TUESDAY, PERIOD. THAT'S THE DEADLINE. Of course, this weekend we ended up completely turning our sewing room upside down (to remove a full-room rug because loose thread + rugs = vaccuuming nightmare) and that totally halted our production. So Monday we pulled an all-nighter of sewing & managed to gather together another 50+ items to take to the shop! *phew*

Take a look at what the shop looks like:

me & a ton of clothing by local toronto indie designers


sam & a painting that's bigger than her :)



my rosette bib necklace & gorgeous repurposed spoon pendants


find the L&B items on the wall :)


you can always find strange things in Kensington. Like these freaky-deaky inside-out plush toys. hahaha


on spadina, near baldwin. pretty much.

& finally check out what we've got in the Rage now:


That's all for now! Thanks for all the encouraging comments guys, we're excited to be back but still learning the ins & outs of blogger vs lj, haha ;)
xoxo

  1. Aw man, some of that stuff looks amazing!
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that some of it will still be in shop when I'm in Toronto in a few weeks!
