Local Gala Dresses
If you’re in need of a fancy dress, I found a local shop you’ll love. Shop Resort offers vacation wear and gala gowns at a really great price. Not only that – they’re having a massive sale right now. Almost everything is 50% off! Check them out here.
- I know I featured these last week but I had to reshare because I learned something new about these amazing tees for Pink Shirt Day. The seven-year-old daughter of the owners of Portage and Main (her name is Brielle) designed the shirts! By wearing a pink shirt on February 26 day you’re taking a stand against bullying and showing victims you care. Get your pink shirt here.
- The owners of an up and coming deli are asking for financial backing from the community. A Kickstarter has launched for Fleisch Deli (same owners as Cartago) in Forest Heights. Sounds like one of their lending sources fell through – hence the Kickstarter. The deli will be ‘a community hub catering specialty food, coffee, and treats’ at 8210 106 Ave. Details on how you can help out here.
Consignment Teaming Up
An amazing hidden gem in the west end industrial area! Three consignment shops have come together under one roof as Mint Collective. Shop all of the amazing finds of Mod Uncorked, Mood Consignment, and Tipsy Palm at 17520 108 Ave.
Creation Space art studio has released its summer camp lineup. See it here.
The amazing shop and clothing store announced it’s officially shutting down the shop on 124th Street. Salgado Fenwick – a small-batch handmade clothing business has been around for 13 years and five years ago expanded to included Barking Buffalo Cafe. No word yet on what will happen with that sought-after space on 124th or what the owners will do next. Read the closure announcement here.
There’s a great deal on Meuwley’s Secret Meat Club subscriptions but only until February 15! Secret Meat Club is a monthly subscription package featuring a variety of gourmet meat products, pickles, condiments, and preserves. It’s handmade in Edmonton from the highest-quality local ingredients and available province-wide through a variety of pickup and delivery options. Right now you can get 50% off your first month.
