"EDMONTON – After two fires in the span of nine months, the Bissell Centre Thrift Shoppe had lost everything.

“It’s been hard,” said spokesperson Devin Komarniski.

“We were just recovering from the first fire and getting our operations dialed in again. We are not only selling items there to create revenues to support the programs and services here in the inner city but also, it’s our sorting centre for free clothing here in the Community Closet that goes to those who are homeless who have nothing.”

More than 100,000 articles of clothing and household goods were destroyed, but Monday, the organization launched a two-week online campaign to #RestoreBissell.”

Bring back the mandatory K-Days holiday!

zine | not at the mall | phase 7 | flora/fauna | rose hip
rose hips and rose petals are edible
in the same family as apples
have a bit of the tartness of crabapples
a great source of vitamin C
the best time to harvest rose hips is after the first frost (frost helps sweeten the flavour)

The forest fires are creating a “sepia” affect in Edmonton. Even the city hall night lights are on it’s so dark.
