beach bia chalk the walk contest...

Dufflet-Beach (1917 Queen Street East) and neighbour Ella Minnow Children's Bookstore have teamed up to create a beautiful and awesome entry for the Beach BIA Sidewalk Chalk Contest.

Dufflet staffer Kylee created the art (with input from Ella Minnow's Yvette) because what could possibly be sweeter on the beach than delish snacks from Dufflet and cool reads from Ellaminnow?

If you're walking along Queen Street East, look down for more creations from area shops east of Woodbine.

Beach BIA reps will be judging the contestants tomorrow at noon, so wish us luck!
