CU­RIOSA

KIDS’ STORE

Where Toronto - - BEST OF THE CITY -

This Harry Pot­ter–themed cu­rios­ity shop, done up with dark hues and Dick­en­sian faux­gaslight, looks like it be­longs on Di­agon Al­ley in­stead of Queen West. But you don’t have to be a to­tal Pot­ter­head to en­joy the spec­ta­cle. More magic-in­spired Ur­ban Out­fit­ters than Dis­ney theme shop, the store of­fers a mix of knick-knacks and nov­elty items, in­clud­ing books about tarot, for­tune-telling, and magic; a vin­tage to­ken ma­chine that al­lows cus­tomers to cre­ate their own good luck charms; and gear de­voted to the four Hog­warts

houses. (A “List of En­e­mies” notebook is an es­sen­tial for any self-re­spect­ing Slytherin). 1273 Queen St. W., cu­riosaso­ci­ety.com
