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.

Shopping in the Junction!

This week I ended up getting a chance to check out Black Daffodil in the Junction! You've got to check it out! Cynthia Rea sells her own designs there under the Black Daffodil label and carries a bunch of local and Canadian designers.

When I walked into the store, this hilarious little dog walked up to me and casually put his front paws on my thighs, just a nice little hello!
The merchandise there has a bit of a vintage feel, not too expensive, all of it really cool!

Then you have to head up the street to Trap Door. Another amazing store!

They carry If-Individually fashioned, Beta Clothing, , Plastik Wrap, dirty-little-secret, to name but a few! It was like being in a candy store. I didn't know what to choose. These guys are a little bit more expensive, the clothes they carry can easily carry you from day to evening, beautiful stuff.  I can't believe these stores have been so close by and this is my first time in both of them.

After all that shopping you've got to  head off to Delight to pick up your Easter chocolates, I hear they've got some great new stuff!  Maybe grab a coffee and a treat for yourself? If you need something more substantial why not drop into Rawlicious?

There are a few other 100 Mile Finds Junction destinations:

The Sweet Potato - for local and organic foods
Smash , Simardone and Post and Beam Reclamation - for the home
Pandemonium - for some books and maybe a CD
and of course Wise Daughters for something beautifully crafted.

I love the Junction!
