Still more Poppin’ on the Danforth

The pop-ups have been buzzing lately thanks to the fabulous flash mobs and some local press. (Beach Metro and East York Mirror) But word-of-mouth is best, so please tell your friends, family and coworkers that it’s not too late to check them out.
Still need to grab a gift for their favourite guy or gal?  No problem!
Need a creative outlet for the kid so they don’t get cabin fever over the holidays?  That’s covered too!

Check below for the latest on special events, activities and some store hours.  Also, did you know that we’ve got a daily calendar posted on our website:


LEN (1936 Danforth Ave)

Thursday, December 20: It’s on LEN. Spend $25 or more in store and get a free cappuccino at Seb’s on LEN

Friday, December 21: Open late until 10 pm for Guys Night. Lets face it there are probably a lot of people out there which haven’t even started holiday shopping. Most of them are guys. Just saying. Stop by LEN to get started right. They’ll have Scotch, salty snacks, and best of all, no judgements!
