  1. I realize these guys are artists, but I was pretty pissed when I found out that this location was another furniture store. That seems to be the only thing opening up in Gastown these days (I’m sure the giant space just leased at the corner of Carral and Water is going to go back to being one as well!)

  2. the continuing gentrification of the dtes, why no pallet gallery? no recycled furniture showrooms. Scout Magazine the schizophrenic gentrification barometer for the DTES, prasise and chastise depending on the almighty adversting and schmoozing rites.
