Anna Gilkerson’s current Makenew collection is at Love, Me Boutique all day today! I was at the shop last eve and was so impressed by the whole scene. Anna has managed to create collections of vintage clothes with such cohesion and a small footprint.
I love the concept. Recycled clothes are great… but we can feel sometimes like it is second best. Makenew is the perfect antidote. Each piece takes on new life within the theme of the collection, it finds new ways to be worn that are current and in great taste. Kinda like have a personal shopper and a stylist- but you will still spend less than you would shopping new!
Check out the website to see the collections and the great fashion photos (you can shop online too!). http://makenewvintage.blogspot.com/
It is totally worth going to see the clothes in person though. Head down to my favorite shop in Halifax, Love, Me Boutique!

Love, Me Boutique is an all time favorite for downtown shopping. Creative displays, friendly chats and always exciting stuff. I love that I can afford Art at Love, Me. Whether it is a hand painted card, a felted pin or a luxe scarf I feel like any item will be cherished for a long time. This is a place where heirlooms originate. With my eyes peeled for Halifax made goods I ventured in yesterday. The find of the day: the sweetest sleep masks ever known made by Alison Campbell. Hand embroidered beauties so comfy you wanna take a nap. Also my favorite feathery earrings, wooden rings and the cutest baby gifts of all. (including patchwork quilts by yours truly!). So take a look and a shop. I know you know someone that needs a good nap.
Today is Sunday December 5th 2010 and I have some treats for you! Of course the Halifax Crafter’s Market is on again today from 11-6… that is where I am headed first. Yesterday was great, lots of people, energy and a very cheerful bunch of very talented makers. I feel fortunate to be included in such a delicious show of creativity, skill and downright art. The sun is shining this morning and I am anxious to get out there and do my part in ridding the need for ziploc bags! Come by to buy, look and have a treat and sweet chat.
Later tonight at Foxy Moon there will be a product launch and art exhibit. I am super excited about my new dry shampoo. It gives me lotsa lift and smells great. Next I will try the organic hair paste. How cool that we can find hair product made right here. Go check it out and support handmade hair. Next someone has to make toothpaste!
So I have a full day ahead and I am ready. See you soon!
