You may have seen the Fix-It Friend van in the area, but did you know that we're based here in Cabbagetown? We use our workshop as our home base and to work on all sorts of custom fabrication projects.

Were you thinking about completing a project over the summer, but didn't quite find the time? Do you want to get a head start on those holiday projects? (yup, we said it...holidays!)

Have no fear! There's still plenty of time to get your outdoor projects completed and it's the perfect time to start thinking about tackling your indoor projects too!

Daniel et Daniel Catering | Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

“Ok so Grandma’s cooking the turkey, Dad’s bringing the potatoes, sis is bringing dessert, I’m bringing some sort of vegetable dish…”

Sound familiar? All the planning that goes into Thanksgiving dinner can leave you asking “OK, who’s bringing the wine?”

Daniel et Daniel has got you covered! With their Thanksgiving Dinner at Home menu, you can spend more time talking with loved ones, and less time talking turkey.

Akasha Art Projects Inc. | Janet Taylor - Balance

204D Carlton Street

Sunday-Morning-Janet-Taylor - Akasha Art Projects.jpg

Scraped clean in the last ice age, the near north is a landscape of etched, fragmented rock and delicately balanced boulders left by retreating glaciers. The very skin of the world is exposed and its interaction with the rich ecosystem it now supports is explicit.

Combining subtly described surfaces and marks with photography, Taylor’s images refer to this graphically abundant environment in compositions as delicately balanced as the relationship of climate, biome and terrain to which they refer.

Janet Taylor’s Balance will be on display at Akasha Art Projects October 10th - November 9th, 2019

Spruce | Balsam + Cedar Candles are Back

455 Parliament Street

As this candle sells out early each year, Spruce has more than tripled their stock levels to ensure the fragrance will be available right through the Holidays.

Pop by to check out the new look and new fragrance additions to the line including Woodfire and Winter White. Fill the house with the fragrance of the Fall and enjoy the fresh perfume of Balsam all season long!
