Old Faithful Shop Takes on Toronto

March 18, 2015

A new stop on your Toronto itinerary: The just-opened outpost of Old Faithful Shop. (“Good quality goods for simple everyday living” is their motto.) Cofounder Walter Manning worked on the renovation of the 100-year-old storefront, “wallowing in dirt, dust, and chance,” as he says. “Our intention was to grace the space rather than disgrace it. Renovations are always a gamble, but we’re pleased with the results.”

Above: The shop is located in the happening West Queen West neighborhood. 

Above: “We tore away a wall and revealed a brick archway, pried up old tile and restored the original floorboards beneath, repaired rotting floor joists and laid hexagonal tile, and installed wall moldings and millwork throughout,” Manning says.

Above: A row of Redecker Dustpans and Brushes; $34.95 CAD ($27.32 USD). 

Above: Ceramics from West River Field Lab.

Above: An array of classic kitchenwares.

Above: A tropical plant from local shop Dynasty Toronto.

Above: Manning added a jib door to the new millwork.

Tour Old Faithful Shop‘s original location in Keeping the Faith: Vancouver’s Modern General Store, and go to the Remodelista Shop to see some of our favorite goods from the store.
