How Has The Neighborhood Changed Around You In The Time?
A lot because we were originally the only boutique on this strip. I used to be in Yorkville and moving to Ossington provided me with something fresh, new, and personal – more of who I am.
I am excited about all the changes. I like the vibe of Ossington, the people here make me comfortable.
