Vendor Profile: Liz of The Arthur

spider love

Who are you...you, as a person?
//My name’s Liz. Grew up in Saskatchewan with the loveliest Grandparents and a big old house full of curiosities. Weekends were spent scouring garage sales with my Grandmother, which has led me to a borderline hoarder mentality. I like old things. I’m sentimental. I like Fred Astaire, Chet Baker, Nina Simone, Breathless, Goonies, The Pixies, Led Zeppelin, Sammy Davis Jr., The Cure, Stevie Wonder, Helen Levitt, Roy De Carava, Vivian Maier...

What is your business called?
//The Arthur

What does this business specialize in?
//Vintage quality house wares and curiosities.

Where are you located (home, studio, store front)?
//online for the moment...

Do you have any new products/inventions/designs/projects up for grabs at the Love & Rummage Trunk Show?
//Most of the items I’ll be bringing to the Trunk Show will be Valentine-y. The perfect little items to give to your ol’man or ol’lady. (vintage romance novels and comics, records, mugs, glasses, textiles, etc.)

What is one thing from your trunk that would make a great Valentine?
//See photo. I have an antique leather stamped valentine. Mighty perfect if you ask me!

What would be your ideal Valentine to receive?
//a simple and lovely bouquet of flowers from Coriander Girl and a matineé or Aloe Blacc live show w/my hubby.

How do you feel about February in Toronto - drab or dazzling?
//Generally I’m dreary and drab when it comes to February but this year, January was superduper brutal so I’ve decided to claim February as FANTASTIC and DAZZLING. Watch out February. We’s gonna have some fun!

Do you believe in true love?
//I believe in LOVE. I believe that each connection between 2 people is unique and can always be full of love. Each relationship has it’s challenges and those challenges really can solidify your connection. I think people fall in love at first site (sometimes) and I think other unions take a long time to build (sometimes) but each can be as solid as the other.
