Really Really Free Market (Campbell Park)

From the Really Really Free Market Facebook Page:

Saturday, February 1, 2014
10:00am until 4:00pm

No Money. No Barter. No trade.
Bring what you don't need, take what you need.

Campbell Park
195 Campbell Avenue, near Lansdowne and Wallace
The market will be inside the Campbell Park clubhouse

If you wish to bring something to the market--

The Really Really Free Market is a great place to hang around and meet new people while browsing. We also love a helping hand—keeping items in their labelled sections, folding or hanging clothes, orienting new people to the market. There’s always lots to do.

**We're a small group of volunteers working together in a horizontally structured group and additional volunteers are needed in the organization and coordination of the market, as well as additional help on market day. Without it, we may have difficultly continuing the markets in 2014. If you are interested, please email us:

Clean items in usable and working condition, please.
We cannot accept large items, unless you can take them back with you if they do not find a new home.

See you Saturday, February 1st!

Perth Wallace Crossing Guard?

I am not a parent but here is a question I would ask parents and others. As I sit looking out of my office at the busy morning and afternoon traffic, plus construction traffic, at Perth and Wallace I ask myself why does the second busiest (and soon to be busier) intersection in JT not have a crossing guard? I have asked people about this and nobody seems to know. I think it is worth asking especially with so many little folk in the area now. I have left messages with our school trustee but she has never called me back.

Perth Avenue P.S. And St. Luigi School Festival

Art Spin Exhibition in former Tower Automotive, Sterling Rd.

Event info from the Art Spin website:

The Fourth Annual Art Spin Exhibition

158 Sterling Rd. (West of Lansdowne, North of Dundas)

Opening Reception Thursday August 29th , 7pm - 1am

Exhibition runs August 30th - September 1st
Hours are 12-7pm Friday and Saturday, 12-5pm Sunday

Built in 1920, the Tower Automotive building had an industrious history in aluminum, sheet-casting and automotive parts. In 2005 it was designated a heritage site and then shortly thereafter, closed. For years the ten story historic structure sat abandoned, occasionally accessed by trespassing graffiti artists, photographers and urban explorers alike.

The Fourth Annual Art Spin Exhibition takes its cue from the building it occupies, featuring works that explore its industrial heritage and history of neglect and decay while highlighting the disappearance of Toronto’s industrial past.

This group exhibition curated by Layne Hinton and Rui Pimenta of Art Spin features works in various mediums including site-specific installation, sculpture, painting, photography, new media, and performance art.
