the junction

i've lived in toronto for 27 years and
have never been to the junction
a little neighbourhood being revitalized
located on dundas st west
a few art sisters told me about some great shops
that i "just" had to visit
so, one day last week i spent the day wondering
first stop crema for a latte
then around the corner into wise daughters
handmade crafts and art classes

i met mark at his store (above)
no name on the sign, just some cool junk
and inside , a real treasure trove of things calling to me
"assemblage"!!!!
i found some old wooden spools,
some rusted washers and cow ear tags
he's located right across the street from smash
a great salvage store
featuring jerome jenner



and of course i found some cool texture!
the top of a stool in smash, an old ceiling,
mail slot and a bin of thread

I grew up in the area. Have to go to check it out for the assemblage items.

If you're in the area, need to check out Vesuvios Pizza (not sure, if they're still there) and Young Thailand (used to have two restaurants on Church st. and by City TV).
