Whether creating windows to the outside world or colouring the inside world, European Glass & Paint's team outfits do-it-yourself homeowners with paint and glass supplies, and also offers installation services. For more than 75 years, the supplier has stocked a collection of attractive wall coverings and paints in a rainbow of shades, along with the rollers, brushes, and adhesives to apply them. In addition to traditional windows, the shop's silica-shapers can be contracted to install windows, screens, window coverings, skylights, customized shower enclosures, and windows artistically stained with instructions for finding the hide-a-key.
Since selling its first chef's knife in 1959, The Cookware Centre has armed culinary warriors from its cache of top-notch kitchenware. The store's downtown location brims with respected kitchenware brands such as Cuisinox and Donvier, as well as the necessary tools for creating brilliant dishes, desserts, and drinks. All-purpose pots and pans and other familiar kitchen fixtures flaunt their sheens alongside the same highly specialized kitchen tools and small appliances used by culinary masters to create everything from gourmet meals to melon balls so perfect they haunt Gallagher himself. In addition to helping both seasoned bistro pros and at-home cooks navigate their thousands of products, The Cookware Centre also offers cookware refinishing and knife sharpening services.
The Flour Shoppe adds sophistication to an old-fashioned favourite: the cupcake. Each day, the team of bakers rises up a different selection of cupcakes from scratch and in small batches, using no mixes or preservatives. With strong foundational ingredients such as real chocolate and farm-fresh butter, the bakery is able to offer a variety of cupcake flavours that now spans traditional and nontraditional creations, such as double chocolate, carrot, chocolate-chip pancake, and vanilla-bean latte.
A rotating line-up of cupcakes is only the beginning of The Flour Shoppe’s enticing array of offerings. Cookies, donuts, brownies, and other baked goods are not only available at the store but can also be arranged into custom-styled desert tables for weddings, birthday parties, and other special events. But customers don’t need to host an event to take advantage of The Flour Shoppe’s customizable offerings; they can now order Mixing Bowl Cookies, which give them their choice of dough and mix-ins for freshly baked custom cookies available for in-store pick-up or local delivery.

The Fresh Flower and Gift Basket Company’s cadre of professional florists assemble artistic and unique arrangements from fresh, long-lasting blooms delivered to the shop three to four times per week. A hot-pink ceramic vase houses the traditional arrangement, which features a scene-stealing orange lily flanked by similarly hued gerbera-daisy bodyguards. Rounding out the punchy gathering, pink snapdragons add height, and Yoko Ono green button mums contribute anecdotes about sharing a name with a celebrity. Alternatively, the High Style arrangement sates modern petal palates with a sculpture-like assembly of exotic flowers. Gathered atop a sleek black container, the architectural composition stars a flightless bird of paradise longingly facing the skies, just as it was taught in its acting class for pensive flowers. A supporting cast of verdant flora, including equisetum, lime-green spider chrysanthemums, and variegated pittosporum, add contrast to the work. Once customers have placed their orders in the store, they can return later to pick up their newly minted masterpieces or choose to have their arrangement delivered for an additional fee.
Greg Best and Natalie Szabo founded The Sassy Bead Company in the early ’90s, creating a sanctuary for more than 3,000 types of beads from seed beads to semiprecious stones. They also fill their shelves with rarer bead types, including Swarovski crystals, Japanese delicas, and freshwater pearls, available individually or as part of finished bracelets, necklaces, or toupees. Along with beads for purchase, the duo accepts beaded jewellery for repair, and crafts custom pieces for special occasions such as weddings and proms.
