It was a beautiful sunny holiday Monday.  I spent a short time at the distillery district with a friend.  A cold drink, seventy different arts & crafts vendors from Ontario and Quebec, and a magic show, added up to a  pleasant couple of hours.

A number of vendors were selling clothing, wall hangings, and other items, made from interesting fabrics.

T-shirts with Toronto scenes…. the skyline, a wall from Ossington subway station, a bench at Runnymede, a street car, and other Toronto scenes.  For more designs see Oula Design at http://www.ouladesign.com

Max the magician and his grand finale involving 3 cups, 3 little baseballs, one large baseball, a melon, numerous oranges and a twenty dollar bill in a lemon. The girl in purple was so expressive throughout the show – she was quiet but her body language was marvellous.

four children sitting on the ground and watching a magic show.  Three are smiling, one is looking skeptical.

One is more skeptical than the others! (watching Max’s magic show)

3 legs - one with black pants, two with black & silver pants.  A black and white purse too.

… and of course there was people watching!
