Aunt Leah's

Golds and ochres are colours I associate with autumn, while green is a spring colour. There is no winter colour, only its absences. Summer is every colour, and therefore no colour.

Aunt Leah's Thrift Store is now at 17th and Fraser. Prior to that, it might have been south of King Edward, on the west side of Fraser. The difference between then and now is space, which the new Leah's has a lot of, and which gives the store its aura of elegance, like you find at high end boutiques, where space is flaunted, not maximized, giving the impression of discrimination, because there is only so much quality to go around.

The better art galleries and museums take this approach too, allowing room for approaches, multiple and unfettered viewpoints, which I appreciate as a gallery and museum patron. Time is money. So is space.
