quick trip to southern Ontario

I had to hit Welland for a wedding, so made sure to find some diversions there before I left. Farmer's market of course, because I have a one track mind and that's supposed to be Foodland Ontario:

I met a knitter from Welland on Ravelry and he gave me the lo-down. You should check out his podcast! He told me about a vegetarian vendor at the farmer's market, but it wasn't there this week. He also told me about knitting and crafty places all over the area, I wish I could've made it to all those little towns! I did get to Broadway Textiles, and the main LYS in Welland though:


Nancy the Librarian Action Figure liked the Welland Zine Library best:


Hit a yard sale and scored some Coronation Street loot, what great luck! Oh how I wish Spider would come back to the show with a good storyline. I wasn't watching it when he was a regular, so I only know him from when he came back to nurse Emily back to health after Richard Hillman twacked her over the head with a crowbar. He runs a juice bar in London and made her beet juice to replenish her.
Just for fun we went to Casino Niagara. I spent $5 and won $12!


Then we went to look at Niagara Falls, they're pretty.


And Magnolia climbed a tree:

Back home now, just in time to do some laundry and get to the Camera Obscura show tonight, yowza!!

Hey! Thanks for the shoutout! I'm glad you found some nice things at the market and garage sales. As you saw, the LYSs here aren't like those in TO, but hey, what are ya gonna do? The coronation street finds are kinda cool!
Best of luck!

Carla, I hope you liked your visit to Welland. It feels so different when I go there...like it's hard for me to believe that I used to live there. In many ways some things have changed while in others, nothing has changed at all.

PS: My mom worked at the Welland Library for half her life!
