'We're all equal'

This taste of Guatemalan streettreasure has been brought to you by our South American correspondent SB. Constantly on the move with eyes peeled she was quick to snap up these beauts for you, the Treasurist 

You can keep up with her treasure hunts here and here

putting together unnecessarily complicated, disposable furniture.

But I hate the government, maaaaaaaaaan.

Many thanks

to everyone who attended the inaugural 'Street Treasure Swap Meet and Speed Date Friday' 

Clearly, the event was a roaring success! 

It brought so much joy to the hearts of us here at Street Treasure to see our fellow enthusiasts leave with a new sense of wonder with the, wait never mind. This photo isn't from the 'Street Treasure Swap Meet And Speed Date Friday', this is a photo of box of crap that's been emptied out onto the side walk.

Coming up next on, 'Street Creatures with Sir David Attenborough'...

Quietly now, an illusive Hedge Weasel makes its way out of the safety of its home to feast on local fare.

The Hedge Weasel feeds primarily on fast food garbage tossed from cars, dropped Kleenex and his favourite treat, cigarette butts.

Lets watch.

I'm new here.

Hey everyone! My name is Bill Alliston, I just got down to Endor this morning, really excited to get to work with what looks like a great team.

Quick question before we get to it; has anyone had the chance to install the crash prevention modules on the new 74-Z Speeder Bikes?

A lot can happen in a decade...

'"Bite Roy on the neck, Montecore" she said. "It will force them to set us free" she said. "It will be the greatest thing to ever happen to us" she said.

'Now look us! We went from The Mirage to a dumpster! We had it all!'

'Shut up, Montecore. you're going to wake the baby.'

Tulip Festival 2013

So, I found this disembodied, physical representation of the world renowned Ottawa Tulip Festival not 300 yards from one of the festivals premiere destinations.

I can come to only two possible explanations as to how this monolithic tulip met its ultimate demise.

1. A group of unruly hoodlums undertook a prank far too ambitious given their limited experience in mildly upsetting the tulip enthusiast.


2. The tulip, upon being struck by an errant roman candle blast, became self aware and caught a glimpse of the 'No Dogs Allowed' sign. In protest of this ridiculous display of canine discrimination, he uprooted himself and left. Being a tulip, he did not make it far, but this selfless act for the egalitarian treatment of dogs at the Ottawa Tulip Festival will not soon be forgotten.

On second thought, its clearly the latter. If you really want to upset the tulip enthusiast, just remind them that they are in fact, a tulip enthusiast. I would find that terribly upsetting. 

And for Pete's sake! Change the no dogs rule. Its unnecessary and it hurts my dog's feelings. 

Good luck sleeping tonight with that on your conscious, Ottawa Tulip Festival operations committee.

Best part about your father embracing, nay, mastering new technologies - He sends you gems like this!

Without you this (largely incoherent, and completely pointless) blog would have never been possible.

Thanks, Dad!

Winterlude 2013

I went to some Winterlude festivities this past weekend to conjure up some content for my progressively less active 'photo blog' (I'll get it together one of these days). 

And in true Streettreasurian fashion this is what I came up with.
