Congratulations on 10 Years on the Danforth
We have love for SUGARMOON. We noted the local body sugaring salon as a Danforth Gem in previous posts. Which is why we are so happy to wish them a Happy 10th Birthday.
The SUGARMOON story is one that aspiring business owners can learn from. They started as a small in home business in the east end and over the years have moved twice, opened a second downtown location, launched their own line of organic skincare products and most recently, launched their Sugaring Take-Home Kit. Where will they go next?
Besides helping to improve our community by making us smooth and hairless, owner Paola Girotti has helped our community by partnering with DECA on a number of projects. She’s donated to the DECA Arts Fair, donated to have the wading pool at East Lynn Park painted and most recently the helped co-host the Harvest Moon Festival at the East Lynn Park Farmers’ Market. ”SUGARMOON wouldn’t be where we are today without the community…” notes Paola, “and we’re so excited about all the positive changes that have been happening in the neighbourhood.”
Congratulations Paola and the SUGARMOON team on 10 fabulous years! Thank you for your commitment to our neighbourhood.
The SUGARMOON gang will be downtown at the National Women’s Show this weekend. Every other day of the week, except Sunday’s, you can find them at 1509 Danforth Avenue.

We’ve written about how awesome we think Silly Goose Kids already, noting the toy store as a Danforth Gem early on in its existence. This store has everything – all things train, a vast selection of books, the most fashionable kids shoes, princess dress-up clothes, super fast scooters, eco friendly teething toys, change table in the washroom, rocking chair to nurse in, play area for the toddles, gorgeous gift wrapping, plus all the amazing guests that they’ve brought into the neighbourhood. SGK has added to community events by bringing crafts and activities to many DECA events as well.
We just want to say THANK YOU, CONGRATULATIONS and HAPPY BIRTHDAY SILLY GOOSE KIDS!
The gang at SGK asked that we pass along this note to the neighbourhood:
This weekend Silly Goose Kids is celebrating our first birthday!
When opening our store we had hoped that we would become a “hub” for our community, somewhere that people could hang out, meet friends, feed their babies,make music , share insights on parenting and have a coffee once in awhile.
This past year we have met so many wonderful people in our Neighbourhood and feel very fortunate to be where we are today. We would like to say thanks to DECA for all of their support while we were getting started and continuing to promote local businesses.
We would also like to say thank you to everyone for coming to us for your birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, new baby, new sibling, get well, back to school, moving in, moving out and just because gifts!!
Please come and celebrate our birthday with us. We have lots of fun planned for Saturday and Sunday (Sept 22-23).
Pssst.. Save the tax all weekend!
See you soon!
The gaggle Silly Goose Kids
