Dans La Rue: Great Glebe Garage Sale

Look! A thrifty redhead sandwiched between two delicious boots/dress combos! I just love garage sale fashion. - S

Event: Great Glebe Garage Sale

As a self-proclaimed garage sale connoisseur, I've been to some pretty awesome garage sales. However, I have to say that The Great Glebe Garage Sale is an unmatched winner. Friendly faces fill the Glebe every May to begin the ultimate treasure hunt (some starting the hunt as early as seven in the morning!!) for cheap housewares, gently-used clothing, jewelry and home-baked goodies. This year, Capital Oh shared a table with the lovely Ariana of Coquettes and Gents, and we had a blast selling old clothes, shoes and accessories, all-the-while making new pals! I also found a cool candy-striper button-up, ate a hot dog, and got a sun burn--fun times, fun times. Don't miss this one, Ottawa newcomers, seriously. - S

Event: Izakaya at Suisha

YUM. This event looks fun and delicious: what a wonderful combination! Also keep in mind, friends, if you've got an event you'd like us to promote (food, fashion, music, art, festivals...anything!), just send it to Capitaloh@gmail.com and it's more than likely we'll post it. Cool? Cool.

I took more photos of dogs around Ottawa. In some cases, I took photos of dogs around Ottawa and then proceeded to spoon with said dogs around Ottawa. In most cases, the owners were okay with that. Woof. - S

Capital Oh: Dans La Rue

Wow! Two posts! These classic cuties know how to Spring-dress! It's obvious Ottawa has finally taken its parka off. Yay! - S

Why We Love it: Bloomfields + Exciting Stuff 

    Okay so I actually know nothing about flower arrangements, but from what I can see, the people at Bloomfield's definitely do. Bloomfield's ability to meticulously combine colour, texture, scent, and whatever else I assume goes into arranging a bouquet, is immediately evident walking into their unique glebe boutique(RHYMES!)and I'm sure the flower shoppe is home to some of the most exquisite floral bouquets in Ottawa...maybe even the world! A mixture of home decor, gifts, and floral artistry, Bloomfield's has more to offer than your regular flower shoppe. Its charming owners, Virginia and James, who have been in the flower business for a long time, working all over Canada, are enthusiastic about providing botanical magic for any occasion. Clueless about Mother's Day? Bloomfield's is a good place to start. 

   Also. This isn't just a regular Capital Oh post. It's also a teaser for one of Capital Oh's most exciting upcoming projects where Bloomfield's will play an important role. Intrigued? You should be. -S
