If you are still looking for unique gifts for your mom or things to do this weekend for Mother’s Day, make sure to drop by Scarborough Town Centre and check out their FLOWER MKRT from May 11-14.
Yesterday, I had the privilege to attend their VIP opening with a few amazing bloggers from Toronto and we had so much fun. When I first arrived at the mall yesterday, I couldn’t help but admire all the decorations that were prepared by the staff and vendors the night before because everything looks amazing.
I love the fact this event is about promoting local business in Toronto. If you know me, you know I am all about supporting local business. Here, you will find everything that you will need to complete a perfect gift for your mom on Mother’s Day. Sometimes I wish my mom and I lived closer so I could take her out and enjoyed a mother & daughter’s date at this market. You should totally take your mom out and have some fun time this weekend at this event though. I also love the fact that most of these vendors build their business through social media and online stores. Most of them don’t have a storefront and pop-up events like this are such great opportunities for them to showcase their brand and their specialties.
I was very impressed at how talented some of these vendors were. They had beautiful products to offer from handmade jewelry to handmade soap and gorgeous bouquets. Pandora and NYX Cosmetics were also there with their new collections.
I think if my mom was here, she would totally love these beautiful mini succulents by @GREYLEAFCO. I had a short conversation with the two ladies who own this store and they were absolutely amazing. Check out their Instaram @GREYLEAFCO!
The highlight of the day had to be our calligraphy class from Jenna, the owner of @PROSEANDFAWNS. Thank God she was so patient with us because I was not good at calligraphy at all. I guess us bloggers are on our phones and laptops way too much! Some of the blogger ladies were so good at it tho, especially Rebeca from WISHBONE AND CLOVER. I think I just have shaky hands! Yes, blame it on my shaky hands! 🙂 But we had a lot of fun learning about it. Feels like we are back in elementary school again!
I forgot to mention that there were also live music, yummy food, a cotton candy machine from @FANCYPUF. AND You MUST check out the wall full of edible doughnuts! Such a brilliant idea! I took one home with me but still haven’t eaten it yet because it is just too pretty to eat. Have you ever had that problem?
If you have absolutely no time to shop for you mom (although you should make time for her), you can always come to this market and grab her one of these pretty bouquets or a teacup of flowers.
I had a lot of fun yesterday so I hope you will too this weekend. Thank you for having us Scarborough Town Centre and can’t wait to see all of these amazing vendors at their next pop-up shows!
