Artisans-at-Work…are workin’ late tonight!
In addition to the pop-up shops we posted about yesterday, we wanted to highlight a new business that has opened up on the heels of the success of the pop-up initiative. The Artisans-At-Work store and studio is located at 2071 Danforth. Many, many artists and artisans selling their handmade creations until 10:00 p.m. tonight (December 21). It is the longest night of the year, so might as well spend it shopping!! Here is a note from owner Tara:

Silly Goose Kids does it again!
On the topic of amazing stores in our neighbourhood, Silly Goose Kids’ owner Shamie was recently interviewed for an article in the Toronto Star about the more realistic doll from the UK called “Lottie”. Somehow, Shamie and co-owner Tracey have managed to get the dolls into the store just in time for the holidays. (Maybe those magic kits they sell really work?) If you have “liked” their Facebook page, you will already have reserved yours!
If you have any hard-to-buy-for kids or adults on your list, go to SGK. All of the staff are informed and helpful, and will offer expert advice to help you zero in on the perfect gift. There is lots of stuff that grown-ups would like too – like watches, retro toys, board games and more!
Silly Goose Kids’ hours to Christmas are Friday 9:30am-7pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 10am-5pm, and Monday 9:30pm-3pm.
