Once is a while you get lucky to stumble upon a truly delightful shop that results in fighting strong urges to purchase everything in the store. Ladies (and loving boyfriends), Anice Jewellery in Kensignton Market just so happens to be our latest obsession where you can find unique, hand crafted pieces sure to melt the heart of someone special.

As soon as you walk into this store, owner/designer/creator of all things beautiful Brittany Hopkins, makes you feel right at home. With a punch of vintage and a whole lot of girly, you can pick up a variety of neckless, rings and brackets ranging from many price points (and I promise there will be something to fit every budget). If you are feeling crafty, Brittany also offers a consulting service where you can design your own custom piece and include trinkets and tokens from good times past. I myself, picked up a neckless with my initial hand stamped right on-site.

The holidays are fast approaching and I can almost guarantee you can find something special for any lady on your list, so do yourself a favour an go check it out.

….and follow our new motto:

                     – Eat cereal for dinner and buy more jewellery.

COMMON SORT: PARKDALE

20130822-221225.jpgOne of the many joys of working on the boarder of Parkdale is all the fantastic shops that I can hit on my lunch break and Common Sort is by far one of my favourites. Don’t be deceived by it’s small entrance on Queen St., this place is huge and has so many treasures just waiting to be loved again. I’ve been looking for some causal walking boots for quite some time now so when I stumbled upon these Sendra boots (yah, the ones that are handmade in Italy) for a mere $40 I felt like I hit the jack pot and after putting them on, I would be happy if I never had to take them off my feet. I also picked up a cute top for work for $16 and can’t wait to work it into my fall wardrobe.

Fall is a great time to get creative with clothing and these prices and selection can’t be beat! One weekend soon, go and check out the store and if you’re in the neighborhood, might as well pick up a taco or two at Grand Electric if your intense shop-a-thon leaves you craving some good eats.
