SILKPULP

Mono Ahn is a freelance illustrator and paper cut artist based out of Toronto Ontario, Canada. She was born in Seoul, South Korea and has lived in an artistic surrounding most of her childhood. She has inherited art passion from her grandfather who was a master hand carpenter.

She studied textile design in Korea and BAA illustration at the Sheridan College with  honors. She is a fully trained interpretive illustrator specializing in children books, editorials, designs and animations. Everyday life shows up as influences in her art; music, animation, people, natural habitat and plants.

She mainly works with paper cut design and print medium (screen sprints, surface designs and stationery). Both are flexible and translate well and they are unlimited to expression. She likes working with a natural environment in a fairy tale setting; her whimsical dreamy style is full of imagination. All art pieces are done by hand, cut using a scalpel knife.

Using a surgical blade she carefully cuts extensive patterns out of single, or several pieces of paper until it renders her work of art. Mono creates greeting cards, letter size posters, framed originals and limited prints, along with custom commissioned works.

 SELDOM SCENE

First time  Leslieville Flea’ers Greg and Meredith Chatelain are excited to bring their carefully picked vintage treasures to the upcoming Leslieville Flea on Sunday, March 16th. The couple are avid customers and Leslieville locals with a passion for rescuing items, and finding them a good home. They are passionate about the flea market movement, so much so they planned a trip to the iconic Brooklyn Flea this past December.

Antiquing runs in Meredith’s family, her first part time job started when she was only 10 years old as a vendor at her Mother’s craft and antique booths. Although she is now a teacher, the love for vintage finds has not escaped her over the years.

Greg loves both living and working in the Leslieville/Beaches area. You may have even spotted him on Queen Street in his authentic lamb skin parka made by Toronto’s House of Leather. He is very handy and experienced at bringing old treasures back to life.

Their mission is to share the stories of lost treasures and make them available for you to make a part of your home.  Come by and say hello to Greg and Meredith at the next Leslieville Flea on March 16th!

CUBITS ORGANICS

Cubit’s sells rare heirloom and organic seeds for home gardens. Spring is coming and it’s time to start thinking about starting your seeds.
We believe that everyone can grow their own delicious organic produce and love helping families grow their own food. We split our time between urban gardens in the busy city of Toronto & our small farm in picturesque Prince Edward County.We are Laura and Ryan and Cubit’s is what happens when you combine art and design backgrounds with a passion for eating local and growing edibles. We work along side our children and get lots of help from our super-assistant Clara.
cubitsCubit’s started in our own back yard of a rented apartment in downtown Toronto where our mascot, Hazel, frequently dug up our gardens. After growing into several city yards, both our own and volunteered by friends and family we recently broke ground on a beautiful Ontario farm.Cubit’s takes it’s name both from our family tree and a historical Toronto market farmer named Cubit Sparkhall who owned a large piece of land in East End Toronto, approximately where Withrow Park is now.
