The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

The Junction Arts Fest

100 Mile Finds headquarters is in the west end, so on Saturday evening we strolled up to Dundas Street for the Junction Arts Fest. I have lived in the neighbourhood for twenty years (yes, that is a long time), and it has been such a pleasure watching the Junction transform into interesting and arts oriented area that it has become. There are several 100 Mile Finds retail locations there, including:
Wisedaughters Craft Market
Black Daffodil
Trap Door
Pandemonium New & Used Books & Discs
Post + Beam Reclamation Ltd.
Rawlicious restaurant

The festival was fun - live music, performance art, lots of great food and artisans. We bought a new/used Jamaican sound CD from Pandemonium and a very cool Pirate T-shirt for my son from WIJOM. I picked up a few more cards from artisans who would be a great fit for the site, so hopefully they will be with us soon. We ran into friends and neighbours, reconnected, and caught up on each others' summers. So go to your next local festival and celebrate the great neighbourhoods we live in.
