Spot Prawns in White Wine Sauce. We always serve spot prawns when they are in season in May.

Have you ever walked by Gropps Gallery, the old house/artist coop on 144 E. 6th Ave and wondered what it looks like inside? Check it out here.

Favorite art store on Main, Bird On A Wire opened late tonight with tasty treats and showed off new artist products.

There are always little fairs and markets on weekends at the Heritage Hall. This weekend June 2nd and 3rd was the Fab Fair. A jewelry and fashion accessories fair with products from local designers now in it’s sixth year. All sorts of colourful jewelry, handbags, earrings, scarfs and other accoutrements were on display. Everything seemed very reasonably priced as well. It’s like your local Etsy right here at the Heritage Hall.

Oddly, some of the participants were reluctant to have their wares photographed but here are some merchants that allowed photos.

You can contact the Fab Fair at: fabfair@hotmail.com Their web site fabfair.ca seems down at the moment.

Many sellers do not have web sites but the retailers from beginning to end in the gallery below are:

Feltzy Flowers

Earthgirl Organic Soaps

Shantiuganda.org

Elementaljourney.com Silver and Stones

Euro Designs (Scarfs and Tapestry Bags) Maria Carinha, mcari@telus.net

Feather Earrings from www.nateahstudios.com

Lanabetty.com Affordable, vintage-inspired fanciful earrings.

Two things were going on at the Locus the night of May 2nd. The annual Eat for Education event supports Main St. schools with supporting local restaurants donating a portion of their day’s receipts to the charity. See the Eat For Education official site here.

Also on tonight was the monthly new art show, where at the beginning of every month a new local artist gets to show off their work on the walls.

This month are artists Paul Curran and Orin Camus-Goldfarb’s paintings. Check it out below.
