Holy Oak

Wednesday's can be so bittersweet. The dreariness of Monday and Tuesday still linger, but off in the distance there is a light called the weekend. 

We met in Bloordale after two extremely boring days of work for an evening bevvy and some vintage shopping. When we came out of the subway we were looking for the nearest establishment to sell us a drink and luckily it was the Holy Oak Cafe (1241 Bloor St W). Don't you just love when you stumble upon a hidden gem in a totally random neighbourhood? This place was decked out with wooden tables, mismatching chairs, beautiful local artwork, an old oak piano, chalkboards and a great bar
stocked with all local beers. So after one, two, or maybe three (who's counting?) we went to Vintage Depot two doors down. This is one of our favourite thrift shops in Toronto. Dayle left with a pair of pale grey suede fringed boots and Kendra found a cognac coloured leather patchwork bucket bag with whip-stitching and braiding (yes, that whole description was necessary).
On the street side we snapped some shots. The sun was going down just at the right moment and they turned out to be something spectacular. A little light at the end of the weekday tunnel.
