Toronto may be going g20-crazy right now, but we are enjoying a relaxing weekend as usual. Except for the fact that the Toronto Star's G20 special edition listed La Merceria as the Argentinian place to be this past week! As you avoid the downtown craze, stop by for the spinach, ricotta & egg pasqualina they loved!

our very own Sandra Rojas-Chinni has been featured in this month's Flare magazine!
Olivia Stren has written a really interesting piece in the July 2010 issue on three inspired women who reached a point in their lives where making the difficult decision to leap onto a different career path has been the most rewarding choice they've made.
my favourite snippet of the article is a quote by author Anais Nin:
"and the day came when the risk to remain in a tight bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
the July issue is out on newsstands today, but we couldn't resist giving you a sneak peak!

we predict rain this weekend, and while this may not be what we have in mind for our glorious new tans and park excursions,
we can take some time to relax at la merceria, curl up with a cafe con leche, the newspaper,
and one of our home furniture & accessories catalogues..
one of our favourite new labels, canvas by ochre, is based out of new york and has the most divine things for the home. we carry several of their beautiful items in store, and do custom orders regularly.
also be sure to dig in to the fantastic roost catalogue. Its big, beautifully styled, and is sure to have something your home has always wanted :)
tenga un fin de semana bueno!
