Merchant of ephemera in Mile End

Meet Billy, mixed media artist, roamer and proprietor of my fave ephemera shop @monastiraki in #Montréal where i purchased expired passports, vintage hotel stationary, 4-language election leaflets, handmade chapbooks and myriad other oddities – much is now transformed into new stories. PS i need a stationery restock!

Scrapjournals for no particular reason

Often times, I make scrap journals for no particular reason, just for enjoyment of gathering interesting paper tidbits and ephemera which I enjoy… Then somehow a “theme” or story of some kind emerges. Especially after being stuck/fermenting in a suitcase for months or years, as soon as I open a booklet of artifacts, so many memories return. Some of you might see oddities in here wish you recognize and enjoy as well presented in a different context.
Do you gather memories and stories in someway?
