My Kind of Shop: Up To You Toronto

UP TO YOU, a concept shop in Toronto, is now open!   The idea behind this shop was to create a voyeuristic experience for the customer, therefore changing their patterns of choice.

Dimitra Doufekas is the co-owner and the buyer who carefully choose designers from around the world, talk to them about their ideas and purchase pieces that promote individuality amidst a world of cookie-cutter imagery and products.  Consequently, the majority of what UP TO YOU sell can only be found in this little shop in Canada.

“These days there is a need to offer people a genuine alternative to the normal same/same consumer environment.  I suppose if we don’t start to truly encourage & embrace individuality now, we’ll all be driving around in identically matching cars within 20 years!  A bit extreme maybe, but we might forget how good a classic Steve McQueen movie is.”

If you are in the neighbourhood, make sure you stop by and check out all the kitschy items they have! I love it.
