Value Village New Arts Venue?

2006_7_11valuevillage.jpgValue Village is one of the unsung heroes of Toronto’s indie arts scene. Now that the Buy the Pound is located in the middle of nowhere, VV is easily one of the best places for penny-saving artists to find vintage clothing. Also, we’re pretty sure that a good percentage of independent theatre in the city would be without props if it weren’t for VV.
So it was only a matter of time that someone decided to hold an event at Value Village. Tomorrow at 8pm, Governor-General award nominated poet Lisa Robertson will be reading from her new book Occasional Work and Seven Walks from the Office for Soft Architecture at the Bloor and Lansdowne Value Village. It sure beats the soft-rock radio they usually play at the stores and while you’re at it you can hunt for some “new” t-shirts for summer and some “new” mugs for the office.
