Torontoist was hard at work all over Canzine yesterday: showing off t-shirts, hobnobbing with zinesters, ogling posters, crafts and zines, and taking photos. The wind might have scared a few people off initially, but by the mid-afternoon the Gladstone was packed. Somehow, in the midst of pushing Torontoist and selling tees, we managed to get some photos of the whole thing. There are plenty after the fold.
Popfuel Studios got to take advantage of the newly renovated Gladstone Melody Bar.

While zinesters bond over their wares….
….and make new fans.
Meanwhile in another part of the hotel…
The puppet master and a giant twinkie have fun making puppets out of junk.

A little later in the afternoon, a trio of indie culture stalwarts duke out in Indie Iron Chef.
