GOODBYE 698 COXWELL, HELLO 918 DANFORTH (ALSO WE R HIRING!)
UPDATE: WE ARE ALSO HIRING!!!
>>>CLICK CLICK CLICK<<<
MOVING! US! WE'RE GOING FOR IT!
Man, this January has been more crazy than usual. Instead of being the typically relaxing hibernation-style January that we're used to, we (quite spontaneously) decided to move to a bigger location after stumbling across a "For Lease" sign at Monarch Park and Danforth (we unfortunately aren't moving into that particular unit but it got us LOOKING. It got us thinking, hmm, moving could be cool. Having a bigger studio with a larger capacity for more print runs could be nice. Having a break room would be nice. Having some breathing room would be nice!!!!)
The truth is, we outgrew our lil 350sqft storefront/studio hybrid really quickly. It felt a little cramped from the get go, but we didn't really know what we were doing and the overhead wasn't too scary so we just went with it. But honestly, you guys are so amazing and it has grown so out of control over the past year that we are literally bustin at the seams. It's time to move on to bigger and better things! (But mostly just BIGGER!!!!!)
Anyway! So this is big news right!? I was emailing and on the phone with lawyers, building inspectors, my new landlord and the realtor while away on what was supposed to be a relaxing cabin getaway (it still was relaxing and amazing, with the spiciness of potentially uprooting my livelihood and hurling it west a few blocks lol) It really didnt feel like it was coming together for a while there, but I am so glad it did.
I'm kinda saying this all with a heart that is a little heavy because honestly I LOVE our little spot at Coxwell and Danforth. It has truly served us well and it's gonna be hella weird to not be there anymore. We love love love our neighbours at Pomarosa, Yanagi Sushi, Deserres, Mofer Coffee... but we're excited to meet a whole new bunch of people at the new spot! And the extra exciting part is we are moving ONTO THE DANFORTH! That's right! We are moving a cool 2 subway stops west (Still VERY east end, ok? Like, Donlands is still p deep east, come on.)
We are leaving a beautiful block and joining a different but equally beautiful block. We are joining the ranks of Danforth Pizza House, The Only Cafe, and Masellis. We are gonna be a hop skip and a jump away from the legendary SQUARE BOY (swoon!) We are moving to 918 Danforth!!!!!!!!!!! (Right outside of Donlands subway station on the north side, baby!) It'll give us some breathing room to expand our vendor list, bring in a whole bunch of new handmade goods, and hopefully host events and workshops in the future!
It's gonna take us a little time to get the place ready and to move and whatnot, and the entire process will involve a temporary store closure (irl and online, unfortunately, but not more than a week or so we hope!)
Still followin? Still readin? GOOD. Our FINAL HOURS for our Coxwell shop are as follows:
FINAL DAY AT Coxwell: Feb 19th
Online Shop Closed Feb 16-Feb 28
Danforth Shop Opens: Early March!
Our big big dreams for the new space include WORKSHOPS, an expanded studio that can accommodate LETTERPRESS, a new and improved ZINE LIBRARY, and hopefully a weekly/bi-weekly drink n draw club, once COVID relaxes a bit. But im sooooo hyped!
THANKS FOR READING ALL THAT IF YOU MADE IT THIS FAR!
LOVE YA TO BITS!
