Be inspired by our “toolbox”, explore the process and detail of the creative minds that share the space. See a sneak preview of Marguerite Rodgers Editions and Collection, selected products from The Stephanie Odegard Company, artwork provided by InLiquid, turned objects by BMA Woodworks and flowers by Jig-Bee. Have your portrait taken by Sergio Bucciarelli Photography and hopefully leave with a new addition to your family (adoptable pets from the PSPCA have already accepted our invitation!).
