Toronto based brand Eleven Thirty Shop create beautiful bags, purses and clutches. Each style is made only in a small batch so you can be sure you’re getting a hand crafted product made with love.
We are very pleased to be selling some of their wares in our stores, the leather Pony effect purses can be found at our Parkdale store while the colourful soft leather pocket pouches and purses are brightening up our Kensington Market shop. Prices start at $25, perfect for Christmas presents (for those organised Christmas shoppers) or just as a treat for yourself!

It was a scorcher of a Pedestrian Sunday here in Kensington Market but that did not deter the teams from giving us one hell of a Screen Printing War. Huge thanks to Team Mounting Debt featuring Susan Van Beek Rogers & Kayla Preston-Lord, Team Army of Darkness featuring JP Spanbauer & Laura McCutchan and Kid Icarus reps Jackie Lee and Joanna Labriola for being great contestants.
Terror Lake provided an amazing soundtrack for the event, a big big thanks to them, you guys rock! If you couldnt make it on sunday, check them out here.
It was tough choosing a winner but in the end thanks to a rad guitar stencil, summery colour blend and having all event info on the poster it was Team Kid Icarus who took home the trophy.
While all this was going on, the wonderful Christina of Hatchet was our guest vendor and selling some beautiful hand made bags, cushions and home wares. Kudos to Christina for withstanding the sun!
If you pick up the ‘Neighbourhoods’ issue of Toronto Life and turn to page 46 you’ll see a lovely feature about us included in their top places to visit in Kensington Market, sandwiched in between our friends ‘Sanagan’s Meat Locker‘ and ‘Fika‘.
