We stopped in on your suggestion on Saturday while dodging rain hopping from one record store to the next before heading back to the states on Sunday.

What a wonderful little exhibit! Particularly Heather Goochild's felt dioramas.... Wow. Absolutely stunning & powerful.

Thank you again for alerting us on this (as well as shopgirls.ca, another great find thanks to a friend who pointed me to you, who, in turn, pointed me to shopgirls...)


Cheers & happy holidays!
