What’s Up on Woodbine?

If you frequent the Woodbine Avenue corridor, you may have noticed some changes along the strip, including new stores and new hours.

Leeman International (1202 Woodbine Ave)

Although this nautical and cottage gift shop is new to our neighbourhood, it’s not a new company. East enders Joyce and Jeanine purchased the 27-year old company and moved it closer to home from Markham. They have every type of boat imaginable, nautical themed lamps and mirrors, and will be expanding their home furnishing selection in the near future.

p.s. It’s suppose to ‘feel like’ -16C on Friday. If a Caribbean vacation isn’t in your plans then you can always pick up a schooner from Leeman and draw yourself a warm bath. Happy Sailing!

Changes at Valu-Mart

Well, the picture pretty much tells you everything I was going to say about this change. Happy Shopping!


wefunk Skateboards

How the Eurpoean skateboard company wefunk decided to pick our neighbourhood to open their newest showroom at 1083 Woodbine doesn’t matter. They are here and we’re all cooler for living here now. Fortunately, the boards at wefunk don’t look a thing like the florescent green Canadian Tire special that brings back scabby knee nightmares from my childhood. As their website says, they have “serious, calibrated sporting equipment”. Happy Skateboarding!

  1. I really hope they stick around. I walk by the store every day, sometimes twice a day and have yet to see a human in the premises.

  2. Their picking of our neighbourhood may have to do with the well used skateboard park at Stan Wadlow park. Nice to see them move in!
