EXCITING THINGS ABOUND . . . THIS WEEKEND: VINTAGE MARKETPLACE 2015 !!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s that time of year again, and we are excited as ever to kick off the Spring (finally) with our first big show of the year at The Vintage Marketplace, which fortunately for us, is a hop, skip, and a jump from the store, at the Hamilton Convention Centre in the heart of downtown Hamilton!

The Vintage Marketplace boasts an impressive list of vendors from Southern Ontario and beyond, and should be a wicked event for all of us like-minded fashion nuts! After all, why spend a couple thousand dollars on an idea that has been recycled time and time again when you can go back tot he roots and have the real thing!

We’re concentrating on signature E.O.F. style and bringing forth plenty of metallic, out-of-this-world, historic, esoteric, unusual, and rare pieces for the show, so if you can make it – DON’T MISS OUT!!

Our friend, and fellow blogger, Kristen Archer of I Heart Hamilton did a post on last year’s event at the Careport Centre if you want a taste of what you might expect from this year’s show!

We are thrilled to join the ranks of vintage vendors making their way to the Careport Centre located at 270 Longwood Rd S. in Hamilton, Ontario.

Last year, The Vintage Marketplace gathered more than 2,500 visitors, and this year is bound to be just as busy, if not busier!

We will be bringing a large selection of our hand picked vintage menswear, womenswear, unique photographs, art, decor, books, magazines, and mysterious objects that have kept us alive to this day.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

April Flea! @JunctionFlea Says Goodbye to the Great Hall ! Come to the Last Show on Queen Street!

FLEA_Poster11x17april

The Junction Flea has always been good to us here at The Eye of Faith.

We were lucky enough to have our public debut, and first pop-up, with the Flea in January, and since then, we can’t imagine not being a part of it all. On top of being with our favourite shops in the city, we’ve been able to meet a lot of really fun and cool people in the process, which has really made it all the more worth while.

If you’re in Toronto on April 14th, make sure to stop by The Great Hall and get your fix of amazing hand-picked vintage and handmade realness!

We will be bringing with us our usual mix of timeless, classic, out-of-control menswear at great prices, as well as our secret womenswear finds that you can only currently find from us at each month’s Flea. We’ve also been collecting treasures this month to bring to the flea like vintage art, unusual snapshots, legendary fashion magazine issues, vintage LPs, and 1960s horror comics. We’ve got our eye on the prize, after all (this is The Eye of Faith)!

So be sure to stop by, grab a coffee or some dumplings and find something that was truly meant for you . . .

You can get a preview of what to expect by checking out our Etsy shop, and for more on the Junction Flea, be sure to check out their blog!

This should be big, so don’t miss out!

See you there!

Until next time,

The Iceman Cometh: Vivienne Westwood Fall/Winter 2012

If only everybody had their hearts and heads   with the now 70-year-old Fashion legend, Vivienne Westwood. The world would most definitely be a better place, there’s no question about it. Westwood is always promoting her politics and philosophies, and has made it a staple to her work and persona.

This time her collection featured defrosting models whose fake beards and slick comb overs received a dusting of ice and snow. Inspired by David Attenborough’s “Frozen Planet”, an opus to the frozen corners of the Globe, and the struggle it’s taking for the wildlife of these regions to survive their rapidly changing environment.

 “We live in this mad world. If politicians would only see climate change as a priority, we might have a chance…the financial crisis is a symptom of the climate change. We have to stop it or else we really are an endangered species. “

-Vivienne Westwood

Does the state of the planet really not matter that much to us, that the race to make a profit could outweigh our compassion or respect for to the world we live in? There’s going to be a point when the World must come together to work these issues out, but until that happens, these problems will never disappear.

Inspired by Arctic Expeditions, Cool Athleticism, and that signature Westwood twist, the collection foresees that ice man cometh to a city near you.  Westwood has created a modern adventurerer fearless of peril,  unbitten by the frost, and marching to the same geo-political drumbeat of Westwood’s imagination.

Are you ready to fight the cold? Having not been touched by snowfall for the most part of winter (Scary, right?), it really makes us wonder what’s next to come? Not to mention, plenty of reminiscing of the days of Winter when you could look out your window and see the yard freshly covered in snow.

“To hell with the truth! As the history of the world proves, the truth has no bearing on anything. It’s irrelevant and immaterial, as the lawyers say. The lie of a pipe dream is what gives life to the whole misbegotten mad lot of us, drunk or sober.”

Eugene O’Neil, The Iceman Cometh.

We pray those days haven’t yet passed. Till that day we’re just going to keep holding on! We’ll never let go!


Yours truly,

-The Eye x
