Store of the Week

There are some stores that you'd like to take your time to get lost in. These stores are filled with treasures just waiting to be plucked off the shelf, wrapped into tissue and be given a home on your mantle.

Every week I am going to post about one of these stores, so without further adieu. Here is store of the week #1.


1104 Yonge St (south of St. Clair)

If French country, mirrored furniture, laduree macaroon colours, and linen-scented candles are your thing, then Putti was made for you. This Rosedale shop is a must for all d├ęcor enthusiasts and worth popping into after enjoying a croissant at Patachou .

Putti is owned by a couple who make several trips to Europe annually where they find unique pieces to sell to eager Torontonians. They have an extensive selection of lampe berge products, beautiful antique furniture, delicate crystal chandeliers and unique decorative knick knacks to personalize your home. Add to that fragrant soaps and candles, pillows, notebooks, powder room accessories and more and you have one of the sweetest gift shops in Toronto.

I love the collection of Bon jour Bonne Nuit soaps and candles. They smell so delightful and the packaging is so utterly glamorous. I've always been a sucker for ivory, black and pink. I bought the drawer liners and candle for myself and the pilow soaps for some friends.

If you need a gift, then Putti is a one stop shop for the pickiest princesses and simple simons alike! Their selection of monogrammed powder room accessories make fabulous hostess gifts and there are stunning finds that could sweeten up any little girl's bedroom. If you're shopping for someone else, however, it's safe to say that you'll probably walk out of the store with a little something for yourself too!

PS- on the topic of French, I adore Sephora’s collection of Laduree bath and body products. How precious!?!
