It didn’t rain on Sunday! The Yard Sale Trunk Show was so much fun. For the first time we had vendors out in the backyard, which made the show feel more spacious. Kessa brought along a tent, just in case of rain and it fit perfectly on the patio.
The highlight for me was Celine’s outdoor photobooth. I approached Celine a little while ago with the idea and wondered if it might be something she would like to try. Little did I know that she would take the idea and make more marvelous than I could have imagined. Celine worked with Rosalyn to create the sunny yellow backdrop. Now I’m in love with yellow! The night before the show, Celine & Jin arrived with a box of tools and worked to rig up the backdrop, a cute wooden ‘photos’ sign, and string to drop the lights and fabric bunting from. All their hard work totally paid off. For fun props, we used cute cardboard diamonds that Rosalyn made and super sour lemon candies that Celine brought.
All the photos have been posted here on flickr. They are all so wonderful, happy and funny. I have already spent hours looking through them all.
We asked for donations towards Sketch for the photobooth and we raised $155 dollars. the workroom will be matching the amount and sending a cheque for $300 to this great organization. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to have their photo taken and making it such a huge success.
Celine, you are amazing. Thank you for your sunny disposition and hard work. Best. Photobooth. Ever!

it was my first time seeing the backyard in person, and it’s definitely an awesome space! i had a lot of fun taking photos with you, karyn!
i think it was the best trunk show I was fortunate to be part of
thanks so much for all your hard work
spread the yellow love!
thanks karyn for the trunk show – it was a lot of fun. I think yellow is my new favourite colour.
I would love to have come to your trunk show but I think the UK is probably a bit too far, I hope you don’t mind! Is that a Stylish Dress 3 number you’re wearing? Looks lovely.
What an absolutely fabulous idea! Such a great way of documenting the people that came and enjoyed themselves.
michelle – i had lots of fun taking photos with you! so cute.
margie – we always feel blessed when you’re able to join us.
rosalyn – yellow forever.
arounna – this definitely changed the way i feel about yellow too.
kate – maybe one day you’ll be in toronto! and yes, that top is from stylish dress book 3. i just posted about it here.
islay – i couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. it captured the day and all the lovely people perfectly.
holy crud! nothing can look sad in front of that yellow and white! i can’t believe i am missing all this toronto fun.
