Saturday Aug 27th – POP UP SHOP: MISS NOVA FLAIR

Miss Nova eastern flair is joining us all the way from Montreal on Saturday August 27th from noon to 5pm with a pop up shop including apparel and bling for pretty little things! This is the perfect opportunity to shop for your little ones for their Eid clothes. Remember, she will be with us for 1 DAY ONLY, THIS SATURDAY, so don’t be a last minute shopper and get your kids’ Eid outfits! Eid is…just days away!!!

Here’s a note from Binish from Miss Nova:

“Miss Nova came to be about a year and a half ago when I was living in Vancouver. I felt that there was a gap in the South Asian clothing scene for little kids, and clothes were not being created exclusively for their needs. I was pretty much tired of seeing heavily embellished and uncomfortable fabrics in the back of stores, like dressing kids is an afterthought! So I came up with this little idea of creating my own designs and choosing comfortable materials to dress my own daughter. You can see I took a leap of faith when I decided to turn this into a small business. With life as a busy mom of two toddlers and a full time teacher, it hasn’t been easy to pursue Miss Nova full-time but I’ve been really happy with the response I’ve gotten since I moved back to Montreal. I think it’s really important to remind ourselves and our children where we come from and keep our cultural roots as part of our identity, particularly in the time that we are living in and especially here in Canada.
Sizes are for ages 1-5, and for the first time I’ve included sizes for ages 6-9 as well based on demand. Prices range from $25-70 for apparel and $20 for khussas. Everything is made in Karachi. The clothing is actually stitched by my aunt, who has been stitching her entire life – it’s been her livelihood. It’s my dream to grow Miss Nova into something bigger one day and InshaAllah make a meaningful contribution to women’s issues around the world.”

Monday August 15th: SOCIAL LIGHT WITH MODE-STE

Slide2

In our busy day-to-day lives, it’s easy to forget what’s really important in life. We get bogged down by jobs, chores, etc…and sometimes all we need is a little *spark* of inspiration to get us going again; to get back on track to following our dreams and focusing on what matters!

That’s the idea behind SociaLight – a place where like minded people inspire and shine! Salam Shop is excited to bring you the SECOND SociaLight event with power couple Bilal and Aicha from Mode-ste Montreal! This dynamic duo takes pride in perfecting their craft similar to that of the Master Coffee Roaster, the Master Sushi Chef and all those crafts that take the very best out of their respective canvas. They strive to create a product that embodies the women they are inspired by; unique, strong and loving.

Not only will be hosting a lively panel discussion with Bilal & Aicha, we’ll be showcasing some of their latest designs from their A/W 16 collection!

Fancy finger foods, goodie bags, a new fashion colleciton, and a *bestie* ticket option, what’re you waiting for?!

Who is this event for? It’s for anyone looking for some inspiration, a premium networking opportunity, and a chance to meet like minded individuals. This event is open to both MEN & WOMEN, and would be perfect for couples looking to get into business together (or already are). It’s also for anyone who wants tips on how to take action; start their business; or take those first steps in starting something new.

See you there, inshallah!

Saturday January 30th: STORYTIME WITH RUKHSANA KHAN

61p-KszHXpL

“For a young refugee living with loss and terror-filled memories, time is measured by the next bucket of water, the next portion of bread, and the next call to prayer. Here, where everything – walls, floor, courtyard – is mud, a boy’s heart can still long for freedom, independence, and safety. And here, where life is terribly fragile, the strength to endure grows out of need. But the strength to dream comes from within. (Indigo)”

We are so excited to have author, Rukhsana Khan, join us on the Salam Shop carpet for story time this Sunday from 2pm to 4pm. Her book, The Roses in My Carpets, is about the story of a refugee boy from Afghanistan struggling towards adulthood and dreams of his future. Join us for this opportunity for children to understand and learn more about refugee children and draw parallels to current world events.

 

Parents are welcome to accompany their child for storytime or remain anywhere in the shop. No unsupervised drop-offs, please. All are welcome / no sign up required.

PACK MY BAG FOR SUCCES: A Backpack Drive for Syrian Refugees

This fundraiser is being organized independently of Salam Shop by one of our brands. For more information, look up “Pack My Bag for Success” on facebook or contact them at packmybagforsuccess@gmail.com.

Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 10.16.08 PM

The GOAL of this initiative is to gather a minimum of 100 BRAND NEW backpacks, lunch bags, water bottles and school supplies for our dear Syrian students, as they embark on a safe, peaceful and positive educational experience in Canada.

Here are two easy ways to get involved:

Method 1
Donate a filled backpack(s) by printing off the appropriate checklist (Junior, Intermediate. or Senior) and start collecting the required items. We are asking for brand-new and good quality items only please. Additionally, we believe it will be a kind gesture to put a small present in each backpack and to put a Canadian Flag in the form of a key-chain or lapel pin on each backpack. Once you have completed collecting the items, please contact your closest drop-off location and drop off backpack(s) there. We will be posting a list of drop-off locations and contacts shortly.
