Impressions from the Flea Market at the German School


The annual spring flea market at the German International School in Toronto was mostly about reselling toys, children's clothes, and German books. But they also invited Etsy sellers along, and as a German Canadian I couldn't resist the opportunity to show my greeting cards to a new audience. I made all of my recent cards with English and German text and was thus able to offer a small line of German cards.

The many children that were there were particularly intrigued by the magnets. They always are. When a girl spotted my pile of mini-origami paper, she asked me if I could show her how to fold an owl, and when I said yes, she bravely folded along. I say bravely, because the owl is not the easiest animal to start with, nor is 5x5 cm the most user-friendly size... but she did very well! When a boy came along, the three of us folded a fish, which was a little easier for the kids. All in all, it was a fun event for all of us. If you've missed the German cards, but would like to buy some and can't find them on Etsy, just send me a message.

Paper Turns goes German for a few hours

The German International School Toronto (980 Dufferin St., Toronto) is hosting a Spring Flea Market on Saturday, April 16, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Paper Turns will have a table there!

Do you know someone whom you'd like to say "Herzlichen Gl├╝ckwunsch" to, or who'd appreciate a birthday message in German? Stop by my table! In addition to cards with German text, I will be selling cards with English text, black cards, and card sets, plus the ever popular origami magnets.

Tsch├╝ss bis morgen!
