Move it again, girls
What a weird summer. Toronto had a lot - A LOT - of rain over the last few months, and it made for some lovely photos and gardens, but a lot of people had major messes to clean up. Ours was minor compared with folks who had sewage run through their homes, but we had enough with a studio basement that flooded 10 times in 14 months. It was only storm water, but it brought sand, dirt and little stones with it, and left behind a legacy of black mold. See ya!
After much turmoil about possibly combining our home & work space again, and looking at several not-quite-right spaces, we heard about a small unit in the opposite corner of the studio building that would soon be vacant. We looked, we talked to the current tenant, we negotiated with the landlord. Yay! We aren't moving our entire lives 2 months before our biggest show (and money-maker) of the year!!
We've started moving in and setting up, and we're excited about the fun-sized new space. Now to get rid of some stuff! In ten years of living together and working creatively, we've amassed a lot of things that we want to pass on to new owners. And some of them are quite interesting things.... Lots of pop culture ephemera like pin-up books and Playboy magazines (70's -90's), craft supplies (awesome glitter selection), hardware, weird stage props (some for free) and stuff we've made for art installations. We promise that this is not your average garage sale; don't miss out.
