Of water and books


With a watermain break forcing the shut off of our water supply all day last Friday, it was touch and go whether we’d be able to keep our doors open during Doors Open Winnipeg the next day! But in the eleventh hour – around 10:30 pm the city completed its repairs, and we were good to go!

Many Winnipegers who had never passed through our doors visited Oseredok
on Saturday May 28th taking in the new Baba’s Trunk exhibition and spending some time looking through the building. Thanks to all who came!


Meanwhile, the sun in Winnipeg, with its one-day-on, one-day-off agenda, wreaked havoc on the roof repair schedule.  We have to hand it to the roofing crew, however – every moment that the sun shines, they are here doing their work!


Oseredok Boutique received some gorgeous publications from Rodovid Press of Kyiv. Two books are highly recommended – Kateryna Bilokur, biography, essays, and reproductions and  Invitation to a Wedding, a beautifully illustrated history of the rites and rituals of Ukrainian weddings!


Don’t forget to get your tickets to Oseredok’s fundraiser – MARTINIS AND MANICURES July 21, 2011 at 6Degrees Martini Bar & Wine Lounge in Winnipeg.
We’re also selling tickets to the Melos Ensemble Concert June 17 at Jubilee Place Auditorium.

Call (204) 942-0218 or drop in at 184 Alexander Avenue East. We're open Monday through Friday from 10am to 4pm.
