Leslieville Flea Vendor Profile- Coy Depot

Our first ever Leslieville Flea at Harbourfront Centre is happening this Sunday June 1 from 10am-5pm .  We will be featuring vendors to give you a taste of what you can expect to see at The Flea this summer! Vendor Profile:  Coy Depot Here's a little bit about how Lisa from Coy Depot began her work making one of a kind retro inspired t-shirts, bags and more!....... How I became interested in my work? Once I hit my mid-thirties, it felt like all the funny t-shirts were geared to people in their 20s. Even more so when it came to fit in fabric. I had been home with the kids for a few years and decided to try my hand at the t-shirt business.  How I  got started? I started pretty modestly. Once I decided to use retro art as the base, I set out to fill one large silk screen with images and new copy. It slowly bloomed from there. What I love...

Leslieville Flea Guest blog- The Union General

The Leslieville Flea is happy to welcome returning vendor ( but with a new name) The Union General to the Leslieville Flea at Harbourfront Center Sunday June 1st from 10-5. Here's a little bit about them and how they caught the vintage bug.... How you became interested in your work  I started collecting vintage and antiques about 25 years ago when my mom would to drag me, kicking and screaming, to thrift stores and yard sales long before they were cool or acceptable. In the town where I grew up, they used to have a 'garbage exchange' in the spring and fall and people would set out anything they didn't want on the curb. I used to drive around in the car and find the most amazing things, all for free. From that point on, I was hooked. What you love most about what you do  I love bringing items back from the dead - I like to find things that...

Leslieville Flea Guest post- Bremen Blue

Rebecca from Bremen Blue, a new vendor at the Leslieville Flea,  shares how her love for vintage has been passed down through generations..... How you became interested in your work "My interest in vintage and the old is something that sprouted from a very young age. Growing up with parents who couldn’t resist popping in to every antique shop we passed, although at the time a rather endless and tiresome occurrence for a youngster, I gradually became more and more curious about the origin and history of the items we collected. Over time, it became a comfort and great interest for me, with every stop an adventure of lost treasure and hidden gems. My favourite shops to stop at are still the ones spotted along the drive north to our family cottage. Somehow it seems not quite right if the 3-hour trip doesn’t become an almost day event of...
