The Return of the #Supercrawl Fashion Pop-Up Shop!

For months we have been excited for the return of the Supercrawl Fashion Pop-Up shop. If you are a dedicated follower, you may remember us doing the Pop-Up last year at Limeridge Mall for 10 days.

This year, we are so lucky to be open for over three weeks (August 3 – August 25) right in the heart of Downtown Hamilton right smack in the middle of Jackson Square.

Seeing as the Supercrawl Festival is right downtown on James Street it couldn’t be a better fit!

If you’ve been following us, you may also know that over the past few years we have been branching our brand into creating original designs using vintage materials and fabrics we have obtained over our years of purveying.

Well, this truly is an exciting time for us, because this is our first ever Pop-Up where we are selling exclusively these one of a kind pieces that we handmade over the last four years. It truly is a special honor to be able to showcase these designs, and hopefully sell some to appreciative style-savvy people in our city.

We share this with 7 other fabulous Hamilton designers and brands including Batik Boutik, Defective Collectiove, Design by Mallory, Kitster Creations, True Hamiltonian, and With Love Lingerie. The chance for local designers and brands to showcase in a mall setting is so rare, so we feel very lucky to be a part of it all!

Hopefully soon we will have these pieces catalogued for sale to the rest of the world, but until then, keep updated through our Instagram and Facebook for any breaking news!

Until next time,

Buy Headphones. Change a Life. Introducing LSTN’s Classic Style That Gives Back To The World. . .

Elvis. Listen and Learn. LSTN

One of the things we are always using are our headphones, which are pretty much glued to our ears from the moment we take to writing anything for The Eye of Faith.

We love to hear the constant stream of music to get us into our groove, and zone out the surrounding world in order to write the hundreds of articles you have been reading here. It’s a necessary tool of production in our books, and especially if you plan to write abroad (at a local cafe, or even venture downtown to one), a great pair is necessary to invoke the spirits of creativity.

You literally see hundreds in a day. There are chunky plastic forms everywhere attaching themselves to the ears of many. It’s hard to find the perfect pair for someone who wants to stand apart from the rest. We’ve tried many a pair to no avail, but have been so pleased to discover the look and sound of LSTN headphones, and their wicked nod to vintage style.

LSTN headphones are hand crafted from real, reclaimed exotic woods, which naturally create a dynamic and beautifully warm sound to them. Crisp highs, full mids, and powerful bass -perfect to block out the noise of the everyday, and look stylish and sophisticated in the process.

Whether you choose the stunningly pure Beech wood, rich and seductive Cherry, or dark and mysterious Ebony – these handsome materials are a gorgeous invocation of classic tastes, and the slick contours evoke a mid-century vibe that will never be out of fashion. Indeed, for an individual of discerning tastes, these are a definite must.

But, as much as it is about looking good, LSTN has made it their initiative to also give back. For every pair of headphones purchased, LSTN helps restore hearing to a child in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which couldn’t be a more wonderful cause. There are over 275 million people in the world who are hearing impaired, and 95% of children in deaf schools can be helped simply by providing them with hearing aids. So buy a pair of headphones, and change a life.

Powerful stuff.

We were pleased to receive our pair of buds just the other week, and have hardly put them down since, so why not check out the LSTN official site and learn more about their initiative, and grab a pair of wickedly handsome headphones slick enough for a fashion time traveller, and powerful enough to take us straight into the future.

Bet you never thought you had so much power, did you?

Listen Up - You Can Change The World

Hope you consider, and be sure to tell your friends!
