Even during the times, when you think you know all about your city that you live in, there’s always tiny little spots that you may have missed over the years. It could be that one street you always walk by, but never thought of taking an afternoon to fully explore, or a store that you were too busy to stop by.
Peace Collective was definitely one of mine. If my friend from Vancouver didn’t ask to make a visit, I would probably never have gone to. It is located near the (far) west end of Queen Street, just one block away. Not too much traffic during the weekday, but the street was filled with interesting small stores that offer one-of-a-kind, unique clothing, accessories, small gifts, furniture and so on.
Surprisingly enough, the store does not only offer colorful treats but also clothing that resembles the City of Toronto. If you’re a proud Toronto/Canadian citizen and wanting to express the love you have for the city, this is the place to get your gears at. Another interesting fact about this place, is that with every purchase of their collection, $4 will be donated to Breakfast for Learning and feed a hungry child two meals and a healthy snack. Be sure to check out their website for more details about what they do, and their line of collections. You will not be disappointed.
Don’t worry. They are not those tacky sweaters you get from souvenir shops, but rather made simple, minimalistic look that can be worn on any occasion types, from a lazy Mondays to the-king-of-Toronto, Drake’s concerts.
Last but not least, don’t be shy to take a photo in front of this awesome “Home is Toronto” wall, even if you’re not originally from Toronto (like me!). If you’ve lived in Toronto long enough, you will know
Have a nice week, everyone!
