this is really exciting! i've been lucky enough to see the process of new store labour of love come together! from the first real estate listings photos, (VICTORIAN BUILDING!!! 20 FT CEILINGS!!! ORIGINAL WOOD!) to photos of the bare space, to the troubles with trying to get a phone line & internet installed during the G20 summit, the new custom built showcases, the logo going up on the window and finally the merchandise filling up the space!
labour of love is the new sister store to my favourite toronto store, propaganda (686 yonge street). i may have a new favourite now!! anyone who's been to propaganda knows that it's full of a crazy good selection of unique jewelry, accessories, gift items & one of kind collectables, and labour of love will have ALL of that as well as a gallery space! the first installation will be by toronto artist gosia. i've seen some of her work, and it's beautiful!
the grand opening this thursday july 29th from 4-9pm, come for a visit, for bevvies, snacks & fun gifts with purchases...
242 carlton street
