Drake General Store

Over the weekend I stopped by one of my favourite Queen st. shops, the Drake General Store. Attached to the restaurant, cafe & bistro, and hotel, the Drake General Store is a piece in the entire charming Drake Hotel entity. The store itself has a flea market feel, curated with classic and modern goodies, imported as well as a good helping of local and Canadian novelties— namely the onesie. 

The reason for this particular visit was because of the onesie. They carry a darling selection of adult onesies in a few colours including a fun Canadiana print with Maple leaves, toboggans, toques, mittens, and more. I went for this one of course. But unfortunately, the smallest adult size was too big for a small gal like me. So upon this visit I exchanged my onesie for a large kids size, and lo and behold, perfect fit!

Aside from sorting out the onesies, I went around snapping my favourite bits. It's such a confined space but to every wall and corner you turn there's something new. There was this especially neat pharmacy-type wall where all the apothecary items are cleverly displayed. Consider the bunch of these photos a visual wishlist, though I have buckets more of photos not included in this post or else it would be far too lengthy.

The Drake General Store is currently hosting a holiday warehouse sale filled with discounted merch! Expect a blog post on that next because I did swing by, but I wanted to let anyone interested to know that the sale ends in two days, Sunday, December 16th. The warehouse is located at 442 Dufferin St. Unit 'I'. I highly recommend checking it out, especially if you're already near the Drake General Store this weekend. More details and hours of the sale can be found here.
