#39 – Get Augie’s Ice Pops

Augie’s is a local company that uses seasonal Ontario fruit to make drool-worthy popsicles in delicious flavour combos.  Through the summer they have stands at a few farmer’s markets around the city, and also a handful of lucky stores carry them.

We went to Local Hero on Roncesvalles for our treats; Pineapple Coconut Lime and Peaches & Cream.  DELICIOUS.


Details: Information about Augie’s (including where to find them and flavours) can be found here.

#71 – Enter a contest

Last week we entered one of those loop contests on Instagram, and guys, we won!  I was pretty pumped.  The give-away featured nine awesome Queen West boutique vendors involved in This Little Piggy’s upcoming Love Market and the winner could choose a gift certificate from the store of their choice.  It was a pretty awesome treat in the middle of dreary winter week! We are super excited to go for a mini shopping spree at the store of our choice!


Details: The Love Market is hosted by This Little Piggy Shop on Saturday, February 7th, and features The Kitten and the Bear (you know we have some serious love for them), Glory Hole Doughnuts, Uncle Peter’s Man, Ollie Jones, Mini Souls, Rumour and Gus, Bridge the Bump and Deidre Wicks.

#75 – Vendor Queens Market at the Brickworks

We hit up the Vendor Queens Market the The Brickworks today to finish off our holiday shopping.  It was a great little market of a variety of vendors; jewellery, art, clothing, wood working, soaps, honey, etc.  We scored a number of great items, but we’re only showing our collection of brown bags below, we don’t want to spoil any Christmas surprises!   The cinnamon honey was a treat for us!
