The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

...3 more sleeps - flowers anyone?

But not just any old flowers.  We have some unique florists at 100 Mile Finds.

Eco Stems is an 'environmentally and socially sustainable flower shop located in downtown Toronto'.  Eco-stems uses only local or fair-trade flowers to create their arrangements.  Located at 267 Queen Street, and on-line.

Eco Flora is similarly inclined, searching both locally and internationally for fair-trade flowers to create their contemporary designs.  Not sending flowers for Valentines Day?  Consider Eco Flora for your next event or special occasion.
Studio by appointment only - contact on-line.

One of our local favourites is The Flower Room.  Independently owned shop located in Bloor West Village.  Beautiful arrangements with a conscience.  International fair trade suppliers and deliveries (weather permitting) are made via motorcycle to cut down on emissions.

February could use a little brightening up.
