Locally created prints, pins and cards can all be found at this Kensington shop, and they stock sought after local brands such as Stay Home Club and other items from small makers located in Hamilton.

Toronto Designers Market

The beauty of this place is that each and every designer in here has their own personal space. None of over 30 designers in the 3000 square foot Parkdale space are charged commission: how's that for supporting local?

Arts Market

Arts Market

Several locations of this store touting locally made goods rep nearly 200 creators. Find a range of products from jewellery to pottery and art, and pay with plastic for the lot then get it all gift wrapped.


Spacing Store

Spacing Store

This Richmond and Spadina retail extension of the magazine by the same name makes it clear the products are local: this is where to find tees, buttons, magnets and more emblazoned with the name of your favourite Toronto neighbourhood.

What's awesome about this Roncesvalles Village shop is how easy it makes the work of local creators accessible to the immediate community, including in their back books and media section where you can find lots of local zines. They also exhibit local artists.

DESIGNnook

DESIGNnook

East Danforth has a resource for locally made design objects as part of this unique nooks concept where each independent maker operates their own mini storefront.


Hart & Hive

Hart & Hive

A former OCAD student runs this College St. place and also stocks his own furniture, lamps and even analog iPod amplifiers. Not only do they have a ton of great items like leather wallets and even wedding rings, but creatives can also rent out a back space for meetings.

Bastone & Co.

Bastone & Co.

Across from Trinity Bellwoods, makers of goods here literally live within walking distance of the shop. Bastone herself also retails her own furniture out of this space, but anything from planters to clothes, cards, jewellery and candy can be found here.
