Birdcage ladyPosted: April 30, 2014
A few weeks ago while having dinner with friends on Bernard St. in the Mile End district I saw this shop in the distance and made a mental note to come back someday. I was in the area again today and to my great surprise there was a parking spot across the street. I am never lucky with parking spots so I had to take advantage of the opportunity. You can probably tell by the way the shopkeeper is huddled in the doorway that it wasn’t really a day for sketching outdoors but it certainly was a day for buying flowers, judging by the number of customers who pulled up in front of the shop to buy some. But it wasn’t the flowers that caught my eye. It was the layers of hanging cages that went up even further than I could draw on my sheet.
