The long-awaited fourth issue of White Elephants is now available!

I've been doing this zine about going to yard sales with my mother since 2006 and I really enjoy making it. At this point it's become an important part of my treasure-hunting process: Go looking at old stuff, find a few good things to take back home, write about it all. The junk, the people, their houses, our conversations.

I took notes on this issue all spring and summer as I went to yard sales with my mom and my boyfriend JJ, but I never found time to sit down and write it. But that's okay, this is the project I took with me to work on during my zine residency at the Roberts Street Social Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. What fun that was. At the Centre I found time to do this writing and I also found many dozens of old sheets of Letraset, which I used to make the elephant on the cover.

This zine is quarter-sized and 68 pages long, with a cardstock cover. I stitched the binding with linen thread.
