There is too much talent hiding behind closed doors along Danforth East. Carter’s Ice Cream is offering neighbourhood artists and craftspeople the chance to share and advertise their talent. Owner Tammy invites you to drop off an 8×11 piece of paper with pictures of your work (along with your contact info) at her shop, located at the corner of Woodmount and Danforth. She’s putting together a binder to showcase everyone’s work. So next time you need a new painting, sock monkey or custom crafted table…think ice cream! Go on down and check out the book of neighbourhood talent.
Baby Steals, Kid Steals
In a neighbourhood teeming with fashionable young children, we’ll bet that many of you have ordered from Baby Steals or Kid Steals, two popular daily deals websites based in Utah. (The Jelly the Pug dress in my daughter’s closet is proof I’ve done so myself!) Well, guess what? They’ve heard of East Lynn Park all the way down there — and they want to see it for themselves. On Thursday, June 21, the women behind these websites, Jana and Rett, will be visiting East Lynn to meet local parents for one of their Canadian meetups. Bring a blanket, some sunscreen and drop in to meet Jana, Rett and a whole bunch of parents who live in our neighbourhood. You can RSVP to their event here. It will run from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. By then, our weekly farmers market will be underway, so you can pick up something fresh for dinner on your way home. Doesn’t that sound like a perfectly delightful afternoon?
