The Toronto Vintage Crawl is tonight

Posted by Amy Grief / October 8, 2015

Toronto vintage crawlFor the Vintage Crawl Toronto (VCTO), stores stay open late and offer shoppers treats (sometimes even beer and wine) as they scrounge for treasures from a bygone time. And, the next one kicks off tonight at 5 p.m.

This event, founded by Leah Gust and run along with creative director James Harrison, happens twice annually, during spring and fall. Usually, the VCTO is limited to vintage emporiums in the west end. However, Sourced and Salvaged and Common Sort in Riverside -- which are both east of Yonge -- will be participating tonight. To cover as much ground as possible, you can plan your route here.

NYX Cosmetics flagship to open in Toronto

Posted by Amy Grief / October 1, 2015

nyx torontoNYX Cosmetics is already available at Toronto retailers such as Rexall, but now the Los Angeles-based makeup brand, which L'Oreal now owns, is set to open its very own Canadian bricks-and-mortar store some time in October. And, it'll be located in MAC's old space at 393 Queen St. West.
