The Leslieville Flea – on Daytime Toronto TV

Last week The Leslieville Flea was featured on Daytime Toronto with Host Val Cole. A huge thank you to all the people at Rogers for making it so much fun, and mostly to our very generous vendors who lent us some fantastic items that made our segment look great!

Found at the Leslieville Flea

Hands down the cutest shopper at Sunday's Leslieville Flea was Kennedy who decided she just had to have a hat made by Johanne. Good choice Kennedy.Not far behind in the cuteness category....Brad from Fair Judy's sold a sled to this lovely lady from Australia.  Apparently there are no sleds in Australia and that of course makes them unique.......Ah...yes...I would imagine that's true. On a more practical note, this bench will serve its purpose as a keeper of shoes and place for bottoms while putting on shoes.  A place for everything and everything in its place . The next Leslieville Flea is just around the corner. ...March 16th from 10-5pm. See you...

New Vendors at The Leslieville Flea

We've got some terrific new vendors coming this month to The Leslieville Flea on Sunday February 23 from 10am-5pm in the Fermenting Cellar of Toronto's Historic Distillery District. We asked them to tell us a little bit about themselves..... HAUTE GOAT  Debbie Nightingale and Shain Jaffe have a farm in Campbellford  (their escape from reality) and also a small apartment in Toronto where Debbie also runs a TV production company.  Prior to realizing their dream of goat herding, Shain wrangled writers fro Great North Artists management and Debbie developed the Industry Centre for The Toronto Film Festival and co-founded Hot Docs!! For years, Debbie dreamed of having a farm overflowing with animals . An opportunity presented itself and before long Debbie and Shain were chaperones to 6 horses, 20 Nigerian dwarf goats, 24 chickens, a dozen...

Caffe Furbo….a great place to visit while you are at The Leslieville Flea in the Distillery District

For Kevin Bonnici, proprietor of Caffe Furbo, the Distillery District is not just a place of work; it's where he lives too! This eclectic eatery draws you in with its imposing ceiling of original yellow pine and large Douglas Fir beams, and captivates you with its chic Euro-Parisian ambience. Kevin opened Caffe Furbo in January of 2011 and has since painstakingly detailed it to reflect the Distillery District's unique, contemporary Victorian vibe.  The food is simple but as he says "what we lack in quantity is well made up in value conscious quality. "   Caffe Furbo is a minimalist sanctuary for traditional Italian coffee and exceptional european wines; scrumptious savory paninis, soups (fall & winter), exquisite wraps (spring & summer), and desserts; in the heart of Toronto's Historic Distillery District. Caffe Furbo is...
