get on board our sale boat!

The winds of summer are still blowing strong, just as our end of season sale is still going strong. We've marked down everything from this past season 20-70%, and we've got some great deals on bags too (see post below). We've also moved the rest of our old stock, from multiple seasons past, up from our hull and on deck at further reduced prices.

Now is the time to finally pick up that dress you were eyeing months ago, fill up your AWOL bag* with back to school clothes, and give your wardrobe a mini-makeover before fall hits.

Catch some wind in your sails and set course to Nokomis!

bags bags bags

Our spring/summer clearance sale is still on at the shop. There are some super deals to be had, including 40% off all Brave Brown Bags. We adore these bags, they are great to hold a baguette and a bottle of wine as you head to your afternoon picnic, or just for lugging around your everyday things.

As well, all Astrosatchel are 40% off, too. This includes all totes, wallets and clutches.

All other bags are 20% off, including all leather nokomis bags, such as the beautiful heathcliff. We only have one in stock right now, in red, and it's stunning. More will follow in August, when fall stock arrives!

art and summer sale on whyte

this past weekend was super busy for us at nokomis, with the art walk and the street sale out on whyte avenue.

luckily, our lovely friend, charlotte, managed to get a space in front of our store for the 3 day art walk. she sat out in the sun (and rain) with her beautiful canvases, while painting a few others to pass the time.

if you didn't get a chance to come by, you can still take a peak at some pieces on her blog.

on sunday, two blocks of the ave were closed down for shops to set up booths on the road. along with a mini-doughnut stand and a reptile petting zoo there were bands playing, dance performances and a fashion show. it was almost like a mini carnival!

too bad we forgot to take more pictures...just this one of lovely tressa (who also had a booth set up for her clothing line, sessa). next year i'll make sure to take a photo of the lady pushing the baby stroller with the two pomeranians in it!

oh my

it's been like a little hot box during the the beginning of july here in the store! i was worried that our store would permanently stay cold, but this weather's proven me wrong. it's the kind of heat that forces you to break out your summer dresses and new sandals (the ones that hurt, but look so cute). so, thankfully we've made a few negotiations to have our air conditioning installed in the next few weeks!

we've been thinking of ways to try and keep cool over the next few weeks while we wait...

hopefully someone's going to throw us a backyard party with a kiddy pool, and maybe some mojitos and mai tai's to sip on!!
