Detour through Elora, Ontario

Once a month, I lead a Ceili-style dance, which includes Irish and Scottish country dances, as well as other fun dances from around the world. These dances are usually held in various small towns around southern Ontario.


While on the way to the dance in the little village of Alma, we took a detour through the charming town of Elora and enjoyed a beautiful July afternoon. There are antique shops to browse through …

and unique clothing boutiques …


vintage shops (too late, this one is closed) …

My kerchief skirt is thrifted ($5.00) it’s light and twirls when I dance.

There was not enough time to do everything so I’ll be back with part two.

Time to dance, but first a “ride” on the old train.

  1. I was in Elora last week swimming at the old limestone quarry.

    Sweet Trash is my favourite vintage shop, next to one in Toronto but it is so sad they are closing in Sept.

    I adore Elora. I need to pop by Alma. I think I stopped in once to a secondhand shop.

    Stop by Reckless Eric and have a great sandwich next time. All farm to table.

    Love the skirt! Sounds like a fab evening of dancing.

    Late day sun is quite alright for the skin.
    Look forward to Part 2.

    (Doesn't the Village of Parker deserve a mention? hahaha) Certainly more people have heard of Alma! 😉
