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.

Agent Reclaim

Shannon O'Hara, the talent behind Agent Reclaim works out of her studio in East York creating handcrafted reclaimed leather handbags and accessories from their inventory of jackets or your own.

Shannon  has a background in designing everything from jewelry to an eco fashionable line of baby accessories. She definitely has the knack!
Shannon describes Agent Reclaim  "The use of post-consumer leather is an exciting medium to work with. Every garment has a story and each seam, each stitch lends to a unique piece when reclaimed into a new item."
Last Spring/Summer Agent Reclaim partnered with Danier Leather to create an exclusive line of handbags and accessories made entirely from their vintage jackets. Her Fall/Winter 2012/13 collection is available in 8 Danier stores in Toronto. Agent Reclaim's custom collection is available on Etsy. Her work is amazing, you have to check it out!
