Toronto home store tour

A friend is coming to visit this weekend, and asked if we could go home store shopping. I mean really, did she have to ask?? She'll be moving into a new home at the end of the year so it's a perfect time to browse for inspiration!

Of course I took this to the nth degree to plan out which stores to hit and in which order. In true "Type A" style, I mapped them all out:

Don't you just love all the nifty interweb gadgets out there? This map was made by Batchgeo. If you are having trouble viewing my map above you can see it here:
You can hover over each "flag" for the name of the store, but I've listed them below too.

A - GH Johnson
B - West Elm
C - Elte
D - Crate and Barrel
E - 1212
F - Cornerstone
G - CB2
H - L'Atelier
I - Pottery Barn
J - Restoration Hardware
K - Artifacts

We won't be able to make it to all of them - so for some unique, Toronto centric ones, I was thinking of hitting up the western strip - West Elm, CB2 (I still haven't been there), GH Johnson, and Cornerstone. I could see if we could squeeze in a trip to Elte too since it's just soo fun to go there!

Do you have any favourites that I missed but should check out?

My idea of the perfect day would be a bunch of us working our way through every single one of these shops!

dajana, all kinds of lovely said...

I love that you mapped your choices out. Have heaps of fun with your ladyfriend!If I could, I'd join you, especially to check out Elte.

p.s. Nothing wrong with being a Type A, and I'm not just saying that because I'm one, too. (;
