Pomme Pomme in Montreal

Positively Pomme Pomme: Montreal's new craft and zine fair

Finding out about Pomme Pomme from my friends at Magpie hipster craft store in Davis Square, I decided right away I was sooo there! Held in an amazing historic building that houses a cozy tapas-style restaurant called La Sala Rosa, an upstairs club featuring the hottest indie rock bands and a smaller vegetarian cafe, Casa Del Poplolo, Sala Rosa is like the Middle East Restaurant and Club of Montreal.

Twenty five vendors selling everything from indie fashion zines to hand-spun yarn set up on July 12th and 13th in the 2nd floor club space while a local dj spun spun everything from Beirut to The Beatles. My favorite vendors were Amber Goodwyn of Lickety Split Smut Zine, the cutest smut peddler in Montreal as my husband said, Curse of the Multiples' Evan Meinyk whose mix of modern and retro graphic design makes my head spin and Serahmarie, editor of Worn Fashion Journal who bartered a necklace with me for ad space in her zine!

And when the dj didn't show up on day two, my hubby jumped in with our laptop and iPod and saved the day. Awesome sales, awesome new friends and now, even more excuses to travel to the beautiful city of Montreal.
