Visit Us At Bloorcourt’s City of Craft This Saturday

Saturday August 18th, WORN will be selling our wares at the Bloorcourt Festival in Toronto from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Keep your eyes peeled for our booth on Bloor Street, between Dovercourt and Delaware, where we will be peddling our latest issue, subscriptions, back issues, and special merch.

We will be there with bells on (not literally, that might be annoying), so come visit. The vendors are plentiful, WORN is in good company: scope out yarn goods from Scarffaces and Holly Knitlightly, feminist prints from Dot Handmade and adorable paintings of colorful kitties from Queen of the Cats.

What better way to send off summer? See you there!

I am quick to defend myself. I just haven’t had the chance to watch any of his stuff. Pink Flamingos isn’t exactly available at the neighbourhood Blockbuster. Besides, I’ve seen the Simpsons episode where he guest stars like, seventeen times. (“It’s camp! The tragically ludicrous? The ludicrously tragic?” “Oh, yeah. Like when a clown dies.”)
