Guest blogger Kate Nichols brings you all the details about one of the ‘hood’s newest shops, DESIGNnook:
A few weeks ago, a sign popped up in front of 2038 Danforth.
If you are anything like me, the sign made me rather curious about the newest addition to our neighbourhood. I decided to stop in to meet the owner and visionary behind the sign, Colleen Imrie, and learn more about this new store.
DESIGNnook is a store divided into 73 small nooks. Each nook features goods from a different vendor. Currently, only 9 nooks are still available for rent and most of the rented nooks will be fully set up by April 30. This means that as of this weekend, you can visit 64 different vendors under one roof, right in our ‘hood!
The vendors who have moved in to their nooks are already offering an incredible selection of jewellery, housewares, art, upcycled children’s clothing, soaps, vintage clothing, and much more.
Breathless Vintage, currently operating in Kensington Market, has set up shop in the mega nook at the back of the store, offering vintage clothing and accessories for men and women.
Carberry Cakery and Soap Kitchen offers a truly delectable looking range of handmade soaps.
The Do La Lee nook includes beautiful jewellery, pillows, and other items.
Colleen also shared two future developments we can look forward to from DESIGNnook:
- Starting May 7, eight additional nooks will be outside on the sidewalk in front of the store every Saturday and Sunday through the summer. Talk about sidewalk shopping at its finest!
- The DESIGNnook basement will open on June 1 to offer space for workshops and other activities. Stay tuned for more details!
DESIGNnook is open every day of the week. You can also connect on Facebook (DESIGNnook) and through Instagram @_designnook_.
