Announcing…Neighbourhood Kids Clothing!
Announcement from local entrepreneur Gary Sappleton…
After a year of working on weekends and evenings, we just launched our children’s apparel company called Neighbourhood Kids – which proudly celebrates children and neighbourhoods while donating 10% of our profits to the national charity, Breakfast for Learning. We are literally a Canadian ma and pa company and we live in the East Danforth.
Our T-shirts are carried by Silly Goose (who have featured us in one of their stunning window displays) and Fab Baby Gear on the West Danforth.
Please check out our neighbourhood collections at neighbourhoodkids.com
And the Danforth Dinosaur T-shirt can be found here: http://neighbourhoodkids.com/collections/toronto/products/danforth-dinosaurs
You can also get an idea of what we’re about via facebook: FB.com/NeighbourhoodKids, and Twitter: @NKclothing
