On the Fringe

The intern and I headed out to Abbotsford Convent on Saturday afternoon to see Fringe Furniture It's always an interesting show as the designers are often a mix of first time exhibitors and decidedly non fringe professionals. There is usually a couple of dodge things that look like they were cobbled together in the shed the week before but this year the collection is fairly polished and engaging. The setting really helps (we always hated it in the museum foyer, felt like such an afterthought) and it's well worth a trip. You can always combine it with coffee and cake from the bakery, a snoop around the studios and a visit to C3 gallery.
