We finally have a west-ender on our team, Martin Stothard. While talking about our impending home build he let us in on a great trend happening in the Junction (think Dundas and Keele).
Great stores offering items from architectural salvage and vintage finds have been popping up all over that neighbourhood.
If you are restoring a home or simply want to inject some character and originality into your home, check out some of these great stores…
