Toronto Vintage Hunt: Part 2

imagePart 2 of our vintage hunt along Queen West brought Nat and I to The Painted Table (1716 Queen St W).

This adorable spot is chockfull of kitchen kitsch, vintage suitcases and other retro novelties waiting to be scooped up. Side tables, iron chairs and lamps sit among vibrantly coloured spice sets, while distressed ceramic wash basins are waiting to be showcased in your powder room.

The array of suit cases were utterly charming and available at a very reasonable price point. Whether stacked or displayed solo, they add worldly charm to a room.

Nat and I loved this teensy chalkboard and stool that would be a charming feature in a little kid's room or it could even funkify a condo's entry way by sitting a console table so guests could write their greetings!

Nearby Pickwick's Choice (1698 Queen St. W) was also charming and it's where Nat discovered her new arm chair. The traditional tufting and shapely arms provide a nice comfy spot to sit and read or enjoy a glass of wine. The nailhead detail is carried onto the ottoman and it's new and cheap to beat!

I like old vintage items. I really like the yellow sugar and tea canisters you have pictured.

I so agree stilletos and pasquale - vintage suitcases have such a stylish oomph to them!
