Weezie World is pleased to be joining the ranks of a number of skilled artisans, this Sunday, at the Dufferin-Orfus Sunday Market. I’ll be there May 19, 26, and throughout the rest of the season (which runs until November.)
Located at Dufferin and Orfus Road, right near the Orfus Road outlets and Yorkdale Mall, the Dufferin-Orfus Sunday Market is easily accessible from the 401, or â€“ if youâ€™re downtown â€“ you can hop on the TTC and the 29 Dufferin Bus will take you right there. Come by and say hello!
The market is open from 10am â€“ 5pm, each and every Sunday (provided we don’t have crazy weather like last Sunday!) and features everything from from farm fresh produce to stalls of fabulous jewellery, health & wellness products, housewares, beauty products, toys, homemade goodies, gourmet sauces, sweets, and SO much more!
Once again, I’ll have special Market Day prices, including some $6.50 (2 for $10) earrings, beautiful $5 beaded/metal bookmarks, and gorgeous $10 blown-glass pendant necklaces… plus a few new surprises!
Follow the big, red balloon in the sky!
LX & I will be up bright & (stupid) early tomorrow morning to participate in the 2013 Grand Opening of the East Gwillimbury Farmers Market.
If the forecast (and this week’s weather) is anything to go by, it’s going to be an absolutely glorious day: 20Â° (for my US pals, that’s 68Â°) and sunny! The market is open from 8am until 1pm and promises to have a little something for everyone (I’m looking forward to some tasty, fresh produce!)
I’ll have some brand-new items on display at special Market Day prices, including some $6.50 (2 for $10) earrings, beautiful $5 beaded/metal bookmarks, gorgeous $10 blown-glass pendant necklaces, and heaps more! Here’s a sneak peek at some of it… but you’ll have to come out tomorrow morning to see all my new goodies!
And, if you needed more incentive, the EG Farmers Market will be giving away lovely wee pansies to the first 100 customers!
For those of you unfamiliar with the Market, it’s super easy to find â€“ it’s just north of Newmarket on Leslie Street (in fact, you could head straight up Leslie from the downtown core if it’s early enough; otherwise the DVP/404 might be a better option.)

1900 Leslie St.
Open every Saturday from 8am to 1pm!
Ever been to a craft show, flea market or street festival and had something pretty catch your eye with nary a cent in your pocket? I know I have. And, in some cases, the option to use a credit card was made available. But, with the prohibitive cost of those wireless swipey terminals, most vendors and artisans just aren’t able to afford the rental and merchant fees associated with having one.
Well, the times they are a-changin’ (why, yes, as a matter of fact I *am* trying to fit as many song titles into this post as possible – heh) and the advent of super speedy smart phones has ushered in a spankin’ new way to accept credit card payments. Which is fantastic news for people like me who have lovely things to sell… and who also like to shop.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey launched a remarkable service in 2010 called Square â€“ which, essentially, is a dongle that plugs into the headset jack of your iPhone or Android and lets you accept either Visa or Mastercard payments via its industry-standard encrypted network.
Good news for small business owners everywhere. And even better news for shoppers, like me!
So, for those of you planning to come out and visit Weezie World in person, don’t fret if you forgot to stop at the ATM… I’ve got your back.Â Thanks to Square, Weezie World accepts Visa and Mastercard (and good old-fashioned cash)
Hooray! The sun came out yesterday. It didn’t do much to warm things up, but I was still able to take a few photographs before the wind decided to wreak havoc with my plans. With any luck at all, the forecast for this week is accurate and we’re finally going to see some spring temperatures.
In the meantime â€“ I give you a few new Weezie World originals!
Check back with me shortly… I promise there are plenty ofÂ more pretties to come!
