"You're right, Nolin: there isn't a BIA at present. When I was going around to the various businesses to get them involved in Leslieville Stomp, quite a few of them expressed interest in forming a BIA, and others were reticent to pay the…"
I still have the two sandwich boards - do you want Randy to drop them off at your place or he could drop them off at Boston Paul's - I don't have his address but you can leave it for me in direct mail...."
"Hi Boston Paul & Jen!
Thanks so much for the loan of those 20 sandwich boards. I've got them all in the back of my SUV right now. Let me know when and where on Boston I can drop them off! Maia 416-461-8773"
"I don't think they've closed for good. I saw a sign on a store front the other day announcing the opening of a new Pulp Kitchen somewhere along Queen between Jones and Leslie (I think). Good to know as I was missing the food. Yes, servers…"
So sorry, I didn't know about this part of the site :) absolutely I will put boards up and there were about 10-15 houses that didn't get flyers as we ran out so if you could bring a few tonight, that would be great and I will…"
"Hi Rachel: Thanks for distributing flyers to Caroline/Winnifred. I was wondering if you could do me a favor and put out four sandwich boards tomorrow morning before 9:00 AM at the end of your street, Brooklyn, Coady and Berkshire (all on Queen). It…"
"Hi Boston Paul: Very generous of you to offer the use of your sandwich boards. The foam core signs we are having printed for the day of Leslieville Stomp will look so much better mounted on sandwich board than on hydro poles. We'd love to have…"
Glad you did - I got home and worried that someone else took them!!
BTW - I've had really great feed back from a couple of the merchants - they are really excited about next year. I mentioned that they probably could expect the contribute a little cash up front to cover the costs for advertising etc...- they thought it was a fair request.

Nolin asked me to get in touch with you, as he is soon to be preoccupied with other things!
I own an equipment rental business (we mostly work with film and television productions) and I've got sandwich boards, tables and chairs etc that I'd be happy to donate to the Stomp. I live on Boston Ave. so I could bring them home work on the Friday. You could use the sandwich boards to put your "Stomp This Way" signs on to bring people from Queen onto the side streets that are participating in the yards sales. They are 24" wide and 30" tall with room on both sides to tape or staple things.
Maia - Okay - why don't you drop off some flyers to my house, and I will make sure that myself and a couple of other neighbors can deliver them. I will do Booth Ave north and south, and will also do Empire & McGee.
Is it possible to just speak to you on the phone?? (better for me, as I am a mom and don't do email often)
I am at 416-466-5194 or cell 416-543-5753
When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated. Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
