And, I have a little bit of a crush on my hometown. Thus, I've got a bit of a bias when it comes to Team Macho, who's work I've liked for a few years. They're from Toronto, they wear sweaters, and they make great work. Now my Vancouver friends can come and see their prints, books and postcards here at the shop.
I get this question all the time at the shop. My favorite comment to date was a fellow who came in, stretched his arms out wide, and proclaimed "I love this place! What is it?"
It totally made my day, and reminded me that a few more photos of what happens here might help everyone better understand a shop like Collage Collage.
Here at Collage Collage, we sell books, magazines, art supplies, toys, and other treasures. We teach classes several times a week that you can check out on the website. Or you can just email me, and we can find out if I've got a class suitable for you and your family.
Personally, I kind of love the excuse to hibernate a little, stay in, stay warm, read books, and of course make things.
I just got our delivery from Moomah in New York. Moomah is a beautiful store and cafe - I like to think of them as Collage Collage's older, more sophisticated cousin living in NYC. I chose just a couple of their kits, stickers and colouring books to share with you now, and hope to have a whole lot more of their products in the future.
Here's a small peek. Come in, pick one, make something great.
Welcome to Collage Collage's blog. We're a store, a school and a place for all to be inspired in. It's pretty fun to stop in, pick up a book or fall in love with a handmade monster from Halifax. Or maybe find a robot made right here in Vancouver, or maybe just join us at the giant pine table for some colouring. It's really up to you.
