Another such example is the Evergreen Brick Works (formerly the Don Valley Brickworks). I only really learned about the Brick Works last winter while I scoped out wedding photographers' websites, as it's a popular spot for wedding and engagement photos. It photographed so well that Matt and I chose it as the venue for our own wedding photos in May. There is such an amazing array of backdrops, and mixed materials, ranging from natural to industrial and a whole lot in between. But there is so much more to the Brick Works than just being a great location for photos.

restaurant and cafe opened on the property this past summer. While we took our coffees to go, the restaurant looked like a nice place to enjoy a - somewhat expensive - weekend brunch.
We will continue to visit the Brick Works and to check out special events taking place, as it's definitely a cause I'm happy to support!
On another note, before we left for the market, we put our old dishwasher out at the curb, with a sign on it that said "Free - it works!". I also put "Curb Alerts" on both Kijiji and Craigslist (did you know that Craigslist has a "free" section?). We were only gone about an hour and a half, but we were very happy to see it gone from our curb when we arrived home! That was fast! We had a similar experience last year. After our move, we had a massive box of bubble wrap that we put that out at the curb. I thought anyone packing for a move might appreciate it. Within minutes of posting the Curb Alert online, multiple cars drove up as if on a major mission. It was obvious that they were not just passing by. So I'm glad to know the alerts work! One man's trash, right?
