Happy to welcome Mrs Huizenga to the Leslieville Flea, August 18th from10am-4pm Behind the Duke!

Mrs. Huizenga has been an anchor vintage store in the Roncy neighbourhood, established in 2005 and growing in leaps and bounds ever since. Last November the store made a bold move and relocated to the site of the old Goodwill at 28 Roncesvalles, selling stylish vintage clothing and accessories; furniture large and small; household d├ęcor from funky to elegant to functional; artwork of all varieties; and any manner of objects de vertu from collections of sable paintbrushes to sculptural antique tools.
The store also presents twice-monthly Hookerson-Blough Auctions of antique, vintage, retro and collectible items from local dealers and private collectors, which are designed to be as much a social event as they are sales. They’re friendly to first-time bidders, with a licensed cash bar and snacks. Everyone is welcome to try to beat the dealers to the deals – but the store can’t help but delight in auction items showing up in Aberfoyle and at St. Lawrence Antique Market the following weekends.
Mrs. Huizenga also holds special occasion events at the store, from vintage clothing collectives to salon evenings with local musicians, to believe it or not: a wedding reception. Having an enormous storefront affords the store great opportunities, and this means saying “YES!” to industrial carts with perfect patina, “Whee!” to Victorian sofas for lolling about on, and “Hell yeah!” to a vintage collector letting go of rack of clothing. 


We are thrilled to have them as vendors at the next Leslieville Flea!  Come check them out August 18th!
