The Little ShopPosted: February 3, 2013
My sketch today is a bit of crazy chaos, a bit like The Little Shop where I painted it. If you haven’t been to this place (on Ogilvy Ave. in Park Extension) it’s worth the trip although it is a bit hard to spot the faded sign from the street. The three-storey brick house is jammed with vintage everything — clothing, furs, fabrics, bags, jewelery, books, shoes, hats, rugs, umbrellas, wedding dresses — and it’s a sketcher’s paradise on a winter day. Especially since every visitor gets offered tea and cookies as they walk in the door.
