After attending the same university, living on the same street, and having their first babes 6 weeks apart, the next logical step for besties Julie and Katie came naturally: going into business together. And lucky for us, the culmination of their efforts has resulted in August Kinn, a super-pretty baby and toddler store on Toronto’s Danforth Avenue, that stocks mainly designed-in-Canada nursery and toddler items, accessories and nursery accents, and even a few things for mom.
If you’re a lover of the simple things in life, you’ll fall for Fancy Gray Designs. Founded by husband-and-wife team, Lydia and Alan, Fancy Gray Design is a modern line of jewelry focused on timeless and simple design, but at friendly (read: affordable) prices.
