Where To Shop:
No surprise here, Mother’s Day weekend is filled with great local shopping opportunities. Here are some of the pop-ups you won’t want to miss this weekend:
Our local apothecary fave, Gold Apothecary, is popping up at one of our favourite lifestyle stores in the city, Spruce on Parliament. Stop by on Saturday from 10am to 6pm to shop all the goodies in shop, including Gold Apothecary’s newly re-branded natural product range. In case you miss the pop-up, you can still stop by the beautiful boutique to shop their new Gold Apothecary x Spruce Soak collab.
You may remember reading about Fortnight Lingerie founder, Christina Remenyi, in our recent #FounderFiles spotlight feature. Whether you’re already a hardcore fan of brand, or new to their Canadian-made delicates, you can shop their goods today (Saturday May 12th) at Crown Flora in Parkdale from 10am to 4pm. Click HERE for more info and HERE for where to buy Fortnight if you don’t make it to the pop-up.
In need of a new swimsuit lewk for summer? A luxe Turkish towel for mama? If you’re wandering the west side this weekend, stop by the Cobalt Swim x Stray & Wander pop-up at 38 Ossington Ave. If you can’t make it this weekend, you’ve got until May 24th to shop these etailers in person.
Where To Eat:
Self-described as creating ‘Persian poetry on a plate’, we quickly fell in love with The Poet Cafe on King East for it’s beautiful interior and incredible food. If you’re looking for a different brunch experience that will get you more than just basic pancakes, consider stopping by this Old Toronto gem that’s inspired by Old Tehran.
