art crawl, garden tours and lazy crazy daisy summer days


The happy flower - synonymous with the sun, with long summer days, and simplicity.
This weekend on Friday (during Art Crawl) and on Saturday i fiori will have buckets of daisies for sale in the shop and the net proceeds from every daisy sold will go to support 2 charities:
Friday: Good Shepherd Food Bank
Saturday: Stephen Lewis Foundation / Blooms for Africa 

Drop in this weekend during the day or the crawl and pick up a daisy, or two, or maybe a big bunch
- they are $1 a stem and they will accomplish such big things!

And speaking of Blooms for Africa, i fiori is helping to sponsor the North End Garden Tour, and selling the passports / guide booklet.

Date: Friday July 19th & Saturday July 20th
Time: 6pm - 10pm
Cost: $20 per passport

This is a garden tour with a few twists: 
  • The tour leads you into some fabulous gardens in the north end of Hamilton in the evening (when most gardeners get to enjoy their own work!)
  • Each Passport entitles the holder to a 15% discount at some of the best restaurants in the north end on either or both days of the tour
  • ALL profits are donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation / Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign

Happy birthday Canada, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner

It is July 2 and the shop is closed for the day. Nothing serious or sad, just trying to catch up to it being July 2.
Now if we were all 9 years old this day would have taken forever to arrive, but in my world the days scoot by at a rate that is hard to keep up with.
So, to gradually ease myself into the second half of 2013, i fiori will be closed today.
See you Wednesday July 3rd!
