Very sweet underpants from Toronto's The Candi Factory for sassy and even practical ladies!
These aren’t your usual ladies “delicates”. They’re made out of a kind of super-comfortable but sturdy fabric that is nearly indestructible.
They are 24$ dollars a pair which may seem a bit steep, but trust us, they last forever and are well worth the investment. We have a variety of styles in stock including a selection of ruffles, birds, and rainbows (which no butt should be without!)

You may have encountered Camilla Ingr aka the Preservation Society at a past holiday artist fairs or dishing out goodies at her "bakery" underground vinyl shop Backroom Records and Pastries. She's been honing her canning chops for years... I bought about a dozen jars of her fantastic preserves last year for my whole family. Now we are selling them at the store! Camilla's got something for all tastes: sweet, sour, and spicy!! They are as tasty as they are innovative: Dilly carrots. Alright! "Sting" beans (green beans with a chili bite) Yes Please!! Here's some background to whet yr appetite:
Preservation Society is the result of Camilla Ingr's obsession with canning. A former pastry cook and sometimes musician, Ingr began canning over four years ago. A pastry school graduate, she has worked with Patrice Demers at the former Les Chevres and with Michelle Marek of Laloux, as well as interning at WD~50 in NYC. Her Sevile orange marmalade has been served at brunch-spot-du-jour Sparrow. And her preserves have been sold at hipster eatery Le Pick Up and now General 54!!! Preservation Society offers both traditional and more innovative preserves ranging from Dill Pickled Carrots (a cult favorite) to Caramel Apple Jam to Pink Grapefruit Marmalade, and that's just the beginning. Ingredients are local whenever possible and even sometimes handpicked. All preserves are free of any artificial ingredients-- jams, for instance, are made only with fruit, sugar and lemon juice. Heavy on the fruit, light on the sugar, people have been known to eat whole jars with a spoon, so watch out. 9$ and up
