Sisters Are Doing it for Themselves: The Factory Collective Hits Cabbagetown

We attended the Factory Collective Vintage Pop-Up Sale when it first launched in Queen Street West. This past Saturday, the popular sale popped up at the famous Cobourg in Cabbagetown and naturally we dropped by to peruse vintage fashion and partake of their delectable brunch.

On the menu was Walnut & Cranberry Bread French Toast with strawberry, apricot and black cherry compote, and watermelon salad on the side.  In addition, they served Poached Organic Eggs on Wilted Spinach & Feta Puff Pastry (also coupled with the watermelon salad).

Dorothy and I were amazed to learn that the extraordinary cuisine was prepared by The Collective themselves (Crystal Hutcheson, Ami Spears, Christine Atkinson & Lizzie Windsor) -- each for the ridiculously low price of $10.

While we savoured our meal, new and loyal clients poured in consistently and it's no wonder -- their hospitality is genuine and their vintage treasures are eclectic and elegant.

If you missed this pop-up sale, don't worry -- there'll be another one this summer.  For details, be sure to check out The Factory Collective facebook page.
