You Babe

You, Babe is a Toronto shop named for the Sonny and Cher song. It's stocked with women’s clothing, accessories, housewares and knick knacks. The style is a mix of vintage and new brands that owner Rebecca Sherman picks out herself. 

On most days, Sherman can be found puttering away at a sewing machine in the back making clothing for the shop or altering items for customers.

A lot of the clothing is pretty simple, with the occasional splash of zaniness appearing in a funky lining or cool detail. Sherman is always hunting for Levi’s and great leather items.
