Cabbagetown Living [June 2019]

As you may have noticed, this edition of Cabbagetown Living is a wee bit late. I guess we got so caught up with the Raptors dominating at the NBA finals that we forgot to publish!

June, pride month, is a special time in Cabbagetown as we celebrate the neighbourhood’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community. Keep reading to find out about everything exciting going on around town. 

Pride of Cabbagetown

KENDALL & Co514 Parliament St 416.363.9914

That is the theme of KENDALL & Co’s shop window. A nod to the parade & marches culminating at the end of Pride Month and also a play on the expression “Hope Floats”. KENDALL & Co stands for that hope with Kendall & Kevin employing talented individuals to shine as themselves and creating a welcoming space for all to experience their colourful furniture, fabrics, wallpaper, rugs & home decor. And yes, they do sell those super fun inflatable floats featured in their window. So go get yours to splash out in your pool or on the lake at the cottage. Tag @kendallandco when you do on instagram & facebook because you know that is going to blow up, pun intended! Shop local & we are all better for it at 514 Parliament St. Tues-Thurs 10-6, Fri 10-7, Sat 11-6 & Sun 12-5
