A TRIP TO THE WEST COAST

8th + Main’s first lo­ca­tion in Van­cou­ver was at Main Street and 8th Av­enue. Now T.O. is home to the first out-of-prov­ince lo­ca­tion. The shop car­ries a bit of ev­ery­thing at af­ford­able prices. Among its goods, you will find Cheap Mon­day, Vero Moda, RVCA, Only & Sons, Na­tive Youth and Just Black. Just Black’s high-waisted jeans ($50) are pop­u­lar, as are its rompers ($35 to $50). They are also stock­ing up on sun­glasses ($14). 8th + Main, 211 Yonge St.

UNIQUE AND UP­CY­CLED

Four years ago, Kyle Bur­ton started re­fur­bish­ing vin­tage fur­ni­ture and opened an Etsy store that mor­phed into a T.O. shop. His style varies from in­dus­trial mixed with rus­tic to mid-cen­tury mod­ern, nau­ti­cal and Scan­di­na­vian. “I like to stock up on things that would serve well as prop rentals: dish and uten­sil sets, glass­ware, type­writ­ers, an­tique books, the list goes on,” he says. “But my unique and hard-to-find pieces are al­ways pop­u­lar.” Sec­ond Voy­age, 246 Queen St. E.
