I'm back! Thanks for bearing with me as I took a mini-break from blogging. Last week was spent focusing on work, relaxing after some intense deadlines, getting back into yoga and attending various events, one of which was an intimate fete at the Portobello Petite pop-up shop to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Portobello West. Located at Kingsway and East 10th in the Rize development showroom, the pop-up shop features goods from 5 Portobello West regulars: eco-friendly clothing from Elroy Apparel, children's clothing and accessories from Little MoSo, jewelry from Jenn Ellis and Street Cat Designs, and chocolates from Beta 5 chocolate.
Guests enjoyed drinks and complimentary chocolates as they admired designs from Portobello West vendors who've achieved success outside of the monthly fair: Nicole Bridger, Dotted Loop, Two of Hearts, Blushing Boutique and Irit Sorokin. The evening concluded with a festive pinata and speeches.
The next market is happening on August 28th. Congratulations, Portobello West! Here's to another 5 years. In the meantime, you can visit Portobello Petite at Kingsway and East 10th until the end of August.
