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.

Double Take joins

Double Take is a used clothing store run by the Yonge Street Mission. Not only are there great vintage finds at low prices but the proceeds go to helping low-income youth and families. What's not to like about that?! The store is located at 310 Gerrard St. E., Toronto, check them out.

The Yonge Street Mission has been around for over 100 years, "meeting the needs of people living in poverty in our city." They have a ton of different programs including a food bank and meal programs, employment and computer training, school readiness programs and counselling to daycare and post-secondary scholarship funds. There are lots of volunteer oppurtunites too. You can get in touch with them at

Have a great in TO! Be careful, it's slippery out there.
