Quince Flowers – not your typical flower shop, they are artists who use flowers and their clients vision as their raw materials. Not only do they craft beautiful floral masterpieces (and their shop is truly a refreshing oasis), but they are also fantastic community builders, always ready to use their creative flair to any community event.
Dimensions Custom Framing is a fresh and expansive gallery whose owners Ellen Davidson and Wendy Palmer have an immense passion for all things creative. They have a great sense of humor, and framed everything from newspaper pictures of Rob Ford to a tattered pair of ballet shoes.
The newly opened Irish Design House, owned by Irish designers Sinead Clarke, a knitwear designer, and Benny Corrigan – a graphic designer, this store houses textiles, knitwear, jewelry, homewares and crafts from all parts of Ireland. The Irish Design House is a cosy and inviting store that feels like a home. Each piece has been handmade, some using traditional methods but in contemporary designs.
The Fabric destination, macFab is the place to go for all the coolest fabrics, draperies and supplies. Always striving to be ahead of the curve, this boutique fabric store also specializes custom upholstery. As quoted by the owners, “We only buy what we love and would buy for ourselves. Everyone deserves quality, from a candle to a handmade Canadian sofa. Craftsmanship is timeless. You have to visit to experience and see all the things that inspire your own version of HOME.”
This walk will be led by lifestyle blogger and designer, Daniela Andrews, of Curious Citizen. Aside from her total devotion to chocolate (100% cocoa if you please), Daniela is also wild about fashion, travel, food, style, and décor, and she’s oh so happy to share those passions with you during your time together.
