Amanda, Two finds for when you return. Great little stores that are close to home and full of little gems. Not one-stop shops but little treasuries.
One is Crown Flora. My obsession with terrariums continues. While my DIY creations are just fine, the terrariums at Crown Flora studio are works of art. They are next level.
The studio is on the south side of Queen st, where it meets roncesvalles. Across from it is a store called North Standard. It's very Oh Canada. Their candles smell like our trees, and they have the cutest tin mugs with a bear on them.
In case you don't spend all your money in the states, it is nice to boost the local economy.
