thanks to you, 'Flowers for a Good Reason' was a success

Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who stopped by i fiori on the Friday Art Crawl and on Saturday during Super Crawl.
It was a great event , the weather cooperated (how does that Tim manage to plan the weather, I ask...), new businesses on the street received a warm welcome, the crowds of people were in such good humour - but the very best part of all? We raised a couple hundred dollars for Good Shepherd Notre Dame House through the sale of our Flowers for a Good Reason. We were sold out by early afternoon on Saturday!
It makes me so proud to live in Hamilton.

september & Super Crawl is finally here

The James Street North is more than buzzing, it is howling!

Super crawl is here and it promises to be a day and a half of fantastic weather, live music for every taste and art and design in the street, in the galleries and in the studios. This is the best of the best, Hamilton, and it is all ours!

We welcome new businesses like Burnt Tongue (look out boys - opening your doors on Super Crawl is like taking a shower in the Devil's Punchbowl after a hard rain...)

For the fall i fiori has a whole new assortment of terrariums and planters, the widest variety of succulents and cactus in the Hamilton area (and rumour has it in the GTA as well). And you know that with fall comes seed pods and fabulous grasses and branches and flowers in deep vibrant irresistable colours.

september 'flowers for a good reason' :: sunflowers

Watch the workshop and event space on the blog in the next couple days, or pick up the details in our flyer in the shop on the upcoming i fiori fall and winter workshops and demos!

And, like the last art crawl, we will have
'flowers for a good reason'.
Net proceeds will be donated to Good Shepherd. Rumour has it that for Super Crawl we will feature the sale of sunflowers and roses.

Super Crawl gives me the opportunity to design for the sake of designing, so come in and see what's new, come and be inspired, or just come in and say hi!
