Licca's Handmade Toques

I had a market in front of the city hall. There were many people uptown. We had a cruise ship and busker's event today. I really like summer day like today. It makes Saint John lively.
Today I had many customers interested in my crochet toques. So here is a link of my toques. I can customize your toque with conbination of toque and flower. If you would like to purchase my toque, please go to my online shop Etsy, or come see me on cruise ship days at Loyalist Plaza.

Canada Day 2010

Happy Canada Day!!
I hope you had a wonderful Canada day. Weather was pretty good through a day, there was no fog and no wind to see beautiful fireworks. I had my booth set up at the bottom of the King Street. I really have to say thank you to all new customers I met that day and also thank you to friends that came to see me. I came to Saint John from Japan in 2004 without knowing any English and any people. And now I am finally settling in Canada and I made friends with many local people. Canada is my second home and I feel like I am a part of Canada!

P.S. I was interviewed by telegraph journal that day and you can check my comments on either newspaper on July 2nd or on thier website Uptown packed to celebrate Canada's 143rd birthday.
