The meticulous frame fashioners at Framing & Art Centre construct high-quality homes for treasured artwork, awards, and memorabilia. After perusing the surplus of frame and mat samples, customers can choose the design that best complements their masterpiece. College graduates and traffic-school alumni will appreciate Framing & Art Centre's diploma-framing services (around $100+); personalized sports-jersey framing (around $265+) glorifies retired professional players. Fast, on-site service ensures collectible movie posters (many 24"x36" pieces typically cost under $100) will be framed and back on the wall before their owners can reenact all six Rocky movies. Beyond providing an elegant display, professional framing ensures that collectables will be protected and properly preserved. The staff at Framing & Art Centre gives owners peace of mind with protective products and services such as security hardware for safe hanging, acid-free matting, UV glazing, and shark-bite proofing.
Though there are specific pieces on display at Sevan Art Gallery, the inventory is not limited to what is hanging in the physical gallery. This allows customers to request any piece on the market, which the team at Sevan will then track down and have shipped to the gallery. To supplement their art dealing, staffers offer an on-site framing service. Knowledgeable designers help clients select custom frames and acid-free mats for photos or paintings or build out shadow boxes for three-dimensional items, such as sports memorabilia or the bronzed bust of a deceased cactus.

Vintage One Wines puts the power of winemaking into the hands of Toronto's toasters. With this offer, clients have the opportunity to guide a malbec or chardonnay into flavourful fruition from grapes sourced from the vineyards of Chile and Argentina. The process begins with a tour of Vintage One Wines' 10,000-square-foot facility, followed by a one-on-one consultation with a professional winemaker. From there, clients can use a monthly production calendar to be as hands on as they like throughout the entire two-month winemaking process, including fermentation, filtration, and stabilization, or they can just let the wine take its own course while they spend the interim traversing the globe on a falcon-guided vision quest.
During all four seasons, The team at Toronto Adventures Inc. smuggle urbanites out of their condos and A-frames and into the area's nearby-yet-faraway outdoor streams, trails, and forests. In winter, the guides lead groups snowshoeing in the Humber Valley, and in warmer months, they glide teams over two rivers for kayaking and canoeing adventures. Paddlers cast gentle ripples over waters that harbour salmon and turtles while admiring shores that shelter deer, foxes, and blue heron.
Summer enthusiasts can also bask in the warm weather by sailing on Lake Ontario in keelboats, staring directly into the sun, or standing astride a paddleboard at Sunnyside Beach. For land lovers, guided hikes explore the Humber and Rouge valleys as well as the Bruce Trail.
