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.

Combining their corporate savvy with a personal passion for the art of the table, they left their respective gigs and opened Hopson Grace, a retail store celebrating the art of the table. Talk about a bold move.
