On the Third Day of Christmas ...

Monday 15 December 2014
My true love gave to me, Out of Print clothing from #HamOnt's Girl on the Wing.

In the weeks before summer became fall, I moved to Hamilton’s Stinson neighbourhood, meaning my new walk home takes me right through the International Village. This has meant exploring some of my favourite Hamilton haunts (like J.H. Gordon Books) more often, and also discovering new favourites like Modify Your Closet and Girl on the Wing.

Last week, after the tree lighting ceremony downtown, I stumbled upon Victorian Night in the Village. Complete with a horse-drawn carriage and carollers, it was magical. I bought myself a vintage magazine/record stand at Modify Your Closet, and my holiday wishlist grew much, much longer at Girl on the Wing.

Girl on the Wing carries my items from my absolute favourite bookish collection — Out of Print Clothing, which, to steal from its website, “celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Our products feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art.”

Here’s a little video from the Girl on the Wing instagram account showing off the Great Gatsby sweatshirt that I’m really hoping shows up under my Christmas tree. (I also not-so-subtly hinted to my better half that I’d like a pair of Deco Squares earrings.)

This Christmas I challenge you all to go into one shop that isn’t a regular haunt. #HamOnt is full of surprises.
