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.”
