Another Puces Pop come and gone! Thank you for coming out to visit us this weekend. A weekend of chatting, showing our Spring & Summer collection, catching up with maker friends, and celebrating handmade. We sold out of everything Lilac scented!
Here are some of my favourite photos from this weekend, and some of the lovely vendors I was lucky enough to meet or see again. I came home with a brand new bag from Crown Flora Studio, so I am one happy girl!

, who it turns out is not only my Puces Pop neighbpour but also my real life neighbour AND studio neighbour. Triple threat neighbour! Also, I now know fun stories about the history of Edmonton and how they like to burn things to impress people. My Canadian history educational takeaway from this weekend's craft show!
My new bag from Crown Flora Studio
! Rare for me to buy things for myself, but this was definitely the right purchase. I have wanted this ever since February when Crown Flora hosted our Toronto Spring collection launch
. I love this simple, sturdy waxed canvas bag, from lines by: Davis (Crown Flora's house line of bags designed by co-owner Davis Khounnoraj.) Thank you Adam and Davis, always lovely seeing you and I hope you had a great Montreal weekend!
Super-lovely Iveth from The Angry Weather
, who I had the luck to be right across from so I got to see her smiling face all weekend. I also bought the most darling postcard from her (pictured above) and coveted some of her vintage brass rings.
Yummy Orange & Coriander handcrafted soda from savouré
. I loved these at Holiday Puces last year too, and bought a six pack of them for my dad as part of his christmas gift. New flavours each time, and all so refreshing.
Oh, tarte populaire
, how I love you. Guys. I had THREE pieces of pie during Puces Pop. It was delicious. I am addicted. Also, owner & baker Tina is super nice.
Valerie Maynard from Instant Crimson
. I own many of her cute keychains and headbands, and also this clutch
that I still love, bought at Puces Pop two years ago.
Anabel Burin, my frequent show-neighbour and the lady behind jewelery brand Vuela Vuela
. Saw many people proudly sporting her rings by the time they got to my table!
Did you pick up anything special at Puces Pop? Overall, a great Montreal weekend! Now I'm in the studio and back to work on new surprises for Fall & Winter 2013.
