...but I have NOTHING to wear!

A mysterious email from "Pearls Before Swine" beckoned me to a Sample Sale and Local Designer Market in Old Montreal this weekend. The vibe was much more dignified than the sample sale I stumbled upon in New York a couple of year ago; instead of a warehouse and crowds of fashion fanatics pawing through clothing racks, this sale featured peach walls, glass chandeliers, and just enough clothing to browse through without being saturated with trendiness. A tall man with fascinating hair and white hi-tops answered my questions.

The "Pearls before Swine" turned out to be the beautiful jewelry of Himo Martin, featuring pearls and delicate silver chains. Himo is one of three local jewelry makers who are displaying their wares. Also local: bright, lacy lingerie and a rack of chic, finely crafted neutral-colored skirts, coats, and tops. Much of the other clothing, including some over-the-top 80s neon sweatshirts and jackets, comes from Vancouver. Today is the last day of the sale, so wander on over to see what the young designers are coming up with these days. The sale is sponsored by the Reborn Boutique.

The details:

When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?
Cheers!
