So come celebrate with us and support local talent!

BOOM BAZAAR
Sidewalk sale !

FRIDAY August 26, noon to 6pm
SATURDAY August 27, noon to 5pm
SUNDAY August 28, noon to 5pm

Agathe Bodineau proposes LaLaYeah, crafted using fine recycled leathers, her creations include necklaces, adornments and accessories. Minimalist, geometric or cut out using a blade and printed, they are entirely hand made.

Isabel Caccia will offer – both women and men – a personalised nail intervention, for witch she will provide a certificate of uniqueness and authenticity, and a photograph that will be sent to you by email.

ÉPHÉMÈRE Éditions Itinérantes – a collective formed by Sandrine Briand & Francys Chenier – are interested in the aesthetic nature of the poetic thing imbedded in the elemental parts of a book and propose a limited edition [40] poetry collection PREMIÈRE SAISON as well as original unique engravings taken from that same book.

Jennifer Lupien, multidisciplinary artist, proposes hand-made and printed organic cotton baby carriers.

Astrid Philipps has for you some embroideries and cross-stitching using words, phrases or symbols related to, mostly, Rock iconography. Made in advance, she will also offer the possibility of embroidering personalised special requests on location.

Anaïs Ronceray, in the realm of the printed arts, she has selected various works from her artistic practice: engravings, cards, page-keepers, writting paper, etc., as well as an edition of an accordion book.

Stéphanie St-Jean Aubré, visual artist with a background in theatre and dance, she currently specialises in screen printing and proposes frames, drawings, posters, postcards, t-shirts, etc...

Odile Tellier is interested in all artistic manifestations and loves the idea of giving objects a new life. So she proposes hand made handbags using recycled materials and garbage cans using empty paint containers.




***The presence of the artists will vary from day to day.***
