Puces Pop and Casa del Popolo 'Super Presse Club'

2 fun things happening this weekend (third week of my marathon craft fair spree).

1. Puces Pop. The best little craft fair that could. Don't miss it or you'll miss out on some great gifts! Seriously, I traded the fabulous Sophie of Unik Printshop for one of her sweaters last week and absolutely fell in love (I basically live in it now). It is made of the softest, most wonderful fabric ever to grace a hoodie, and is screenprinted with one of her lovely drawings. The next day I was browsing in mall land. I'm not much of a shopper, and it didn't take long to discover that everything in the mall that costs the same as the apparel sold at places like Smart Design Mart and Puces Pop is about half the quality. I was really stunned at the nasty scratchy fabric that cost the same as Unik's incredible apparel, and vowed to save my clothing money for future events where I can buy directly from local designers.

Saturday and Sunday
December 10th - 11th: 11am-6pm
5035 St-Dominique, church basement between Laurier & St-Joseph

2. Super Presse Club! Casa del Popolo is being transformed into a pop-up print shop this month. Come score some sweet printed matter by 14 Montreal artists for a limited time.

All December long, from Thursday to Sunday, 12 - 5 pm. Open from Tuesday onwards the last week of December for you last-minute shoppers out there.

Featuring Julie Doucet, Seripop, Popolo Press, Simon Bossé, Jesse Purcell, Tyler Rauman, Jacinthe Loranger, Dominique Pétrin, Breeree, Daygristle Kirsten McCrea and JP King and Nomryn.

Casa del Popolo: 4873 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montréal
