North Toronto Post - - News -

Five fe­male en­trepreneurs, with five unique brands, have joined forces to show­case their mer­chan­dise un­der one roof on Bayview Av­enue in Lea­side.

The Mar­ket­place Pop-Up is now open un­til June 30 and of­fers a cu­rated se­lec­tion of sea­sonal items for women, such as swimwear and ac­ces­sories, in a stylish and fun set­ting. Own­ers of the Code Ac­ces­sories, Jaxx & Mar­bles, Iskka, Co­colelly and Inkkas came to­gether as a group to pool their re­sources and cre­ate this oneof-a-kind shop (1625 Bayview Ave.). Now cel­e­brat­ing its 15th year as a lux­ury de­sign des­ti­na­tion in the GTA, South Hill has ex­panded into a new multi-level show­room re­sid­ing on the his­toric cor­ner of Dupont Street and Daven­port Road. The space is cu­rated by world-class con­tem­po­rary de­sign­ers, pro­vid­ing ex­clu­sive ac­cess to time­less col­lec­tions and high-end fur­nish­ings from New York, Mi­lan, Lon­don, Paris and Bangkok. Prin­ci­pals San­dra and Nella De Luca and Paul Harper con­tinue to bring decades of de­sign ex­pe­ri­ence to the show­room (146 Dupont St., 416-924-7224). A small but charm­ing café has opened in the St. Clair West neighbourhood. Lion Cof­fee x Cho­co­lat de Kat is part cof­fee shop, part choco­latier — be­cause what pairs bet­ter with your daily dose of caf­feine than an as­sort­ment of tasty, bite-sized choco­lates? Pa­trons can grab a cup of joe, espresso, cap­puc­cino or what­ever they fancy in one the shop’s trade­mark cof­fee cups, adorned with a whim­si­cal lion’s head for that some­thing ex­tra spe­cial (881 St. Clair Ave. W.). Toronto’s new­est lux­ury beauty sa­lon has opened in the up­per oval of Yorkville Vil­lage. Rad­ford, the on­estop shop for hair, makeup and skin care was founded by celebrity makeup artist and es­theti­cian Vic­to­ria Rad­ford. The sa­lon of­fers in-stu­dio makeup ap­pli­ca­tions and hair styling, cut­ting and colour­ing, in ad­di­tion to cus­tom­ized skin treat­ments (55 Av­enue Rd., Unit 210, 416-399-3704). A new hair sa­lon has moved into the Mirvish Vil­lage area of the An­nex. CL Sa­lon of­fers cuts, colour treat­ments and styles for men and women in a modern space. The sa­lon has sev­eral talented stylists on the team and at the ready — many of whom are bilin­gual and flu­ent in Can­tonese, Man­darin and Ja­panese, as well as English (771 Bathurst St., 416-531-6127). Toronto-based cold-pressed juice lab Elxr Juice Lab has a new per­ma­nent well­ness café at Bayview Vil­lage. Lo­cated near the CIBC en­trance, the café of­fers juice reme­dies as well as hot drinks, fresh baked goods from Oakville-based Ju­lia’s Joy­ful Kitchen and pro­tein­packed en­ergy bites. This open­ing marks the com­pany’s first full-ser­vice café lo­ca­tion (2901 Bayview Ave., 416-260-8666).
