This is a real get down to business blog post. I'm rolling up my sleeves and pounding this out, and not even curating my words too much. It's about us, it's about summer, it's about your unadorned floors and how to rectify that situation. Sit down, grit your teeth and just appreciate the straight knowledge that is about to be dropped on you.
POP UP AT THE BARNS - TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA
On July 16th, 23rd, 30th and September 10th, we are popping up at Artscape Wychwood Barns. This is going to be awesome (it better be because we already paid for the booth for all 4 dates). The farmers market has been a favourite of ours for a while, and the Pop Up will feature many incredible vendors... as well as us. You can bet your ass this thing will be curated.
FRANKIE'S SURF CLUB - PORT CARLING, ONTARIO, CANADA
July 9th and 10th we are leaving Zelda in Toronto to run the shop, loading up our aging Mercedes soccer mom SUV with Moroccan rugs, and driving to Port Carling, ON, Canada to "work" for the weekend in Muskoka. Frankie's Surf Club is hosting us for a weekend popup, and after that will have a curated selection of Moroccan rugs and other treasures from Mellah over the summer. More details to come on that shortly, probably via Instagram.
NEW STUFF IN THE STORE - 1090 COLLEGE STREET, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA
We've been working with our suppliers in Morocco to get some really interesting new stuff in for the summer. It's Ramadan, the days are long and the guys are hungry and cranky, but everything has shipped and will be arriving in Toronto soon, inshallah.
Arriving soon: boucherouite flat weaves, cactus silk kilims, berber dresses, and more babouches! The indigo cloths have been wildly popular, so we're getting more of those, too. They can be hung on a wall, made into pillowcases, used as a tablecloth, or just wrapped tightly around your body. In stock now we have Moroccan wedding blankets and Middle Atlas capes, both very beautiful and versatile textiles. Mellah - We Curate So You Don't Have To!
