O.k. first things first.  The Home Hardware is open for business on the south side of the Danforth, east of Woodbine.  I, personally, bought a toilet roll holder there this weekend and was delighted with my shopping experience. Second – there is a new Ethiopian restaurant opening between Coxwell and Woodbine called Hiruth (I think).  All I can say about it is the sign looks darn nice.  Third – a DECA diary spy tells me there is a bakery (a bakery!) opening on the north side of Danforth, just west of Woodbine.  They’re going to sell breads and other baked goods.  My spy tells me the owners are a young couple who live on Cedarvale and they’re hoping to open by early December, if possible.  Well let’s hope all three of them do a booming business.


Two local, eco-friendly online stores are coming together to celebrate the season with a one-day sale on the Danforth Saturday November 21st Kai Kids and Little Footprints Toys and will be hosting the Eco Family Holiday Sale between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 1390 Danforth Avenue!

They offer a unique selection of sustainable, non-toxic and planet-friendly products. There will be toys for the kids to try  and Amanda Pedro of Music Pups will be on hand from 10:30 to 2:30 every hour on the half hour to keep the kids entertained while you shop!  For more visit www.planetfriendlykids.com.
