location, location, location

Well it's official...the shop's storefront has been found! It was a long, time-consuming search but the final location will be totally worth it. Don't want to give too much away...but let's just say by the time spring has fully hit, Girl on the Wing will be opening it's doors and helping you put together a whole new wardrobe! Stay tuned for updates, photos and musings. Now...off to the new and exciting world of renovations! Wish me luck.

  1. Good morning Ms. McMeekin,

    I hope your long weekend went well. I’m writing an article about the Vintage Marketplace and as a vendor I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions about the event. It would include what your thoughts are on the creation of such an event, why Hamilton needs an event like this and what you hope it will accomplish.

    I'd also like to ask you a few questions about your new shop!

    Please advise to whether speaking via phone or email works best.

    Much thanks,
