Rosetta Stone at Tampered Press - Part 2

Part of the enjoyment from trunk shows (besides selling) is socializing.  Early in my career, I dibble-dabbled in PR but alas it was not for me.  In these informal settings, I get to connect with friends, meet new ones and talk about my process, the materials I use and discuss my inspiration.

The late afternoon gave way to a heavy rain but we were snug in the cafe trying on necklaces and catching up.  Tampered Press has that vibe - very cozy with antique window panes, bookshelves bustling with well loved books and a few boardgames for trivial enthusiasts.  It's a swell neighbourhood haunt.  Besides, have you heard?  Dundas West is the new Ossington.

Rosetta Stone at Tampered Press - Part 1

Despite the chaos of G20 and the torrential downpours, a few brave souls came to the quaint and welcoming cafe, The Tampered Press (256 Crawford Street).  It was a very low-key late afternoon affair where people warmed up with chai lattes, had a few sips of refreshing green tea lemonade and noshed on homemade white chocolate biscotti while trying on statement necklaces and perusing the earring racks. 

Here are a few images from the Rosetta Stone Trunk Show:
