2022 … Happy New Year?

New year, same as the old year!

Thanks to all our customers, old and new, who came in to shop over the Christmas season! It was lovely seeing everyone, still making sure to social distance but also making the effort to come in for some personal shopping… almost like the ‘old days’!

January is always a bit quiet, time for contemplation and thinking about the next season and the next windows. We have some awesome gift items arriving over the next few weeks that we can’t wait to show you

Keep checking back to see our new windows!

New seasons … new product!

      Hi Gurpreet,

    Great to see History survive… I remember many evenings doing homework upstairs when my parents John and Judith Woods used to own this store back in the mid 70’s. How Weston has changed over the years.

    Wishing you continued success!

      Thanks Bob for reaching out! I have no information on your parents – didn’t even know their names other than the last name. I actually had a request for information from a Sher Bradbeer who was looking for your family but since I had none, I couldn’t share (not that I would without consent!!). Give me a call – 416-241-5801 – I’d love to get your family history to go with the rest. I know the family who bought from your parents, Milt & Kally Janetakes, but nothing about yours.

    • suri says:

      Hi Patricia,
      Sorry for delay in answering… we don’t carry any kinds of tapes at this time. Agape Christian Books might though.

    I am looking for a French book titled
    Le Tao des Émotions, 3rd edition in print by Nicole Tremblay. I’ve searched in Quebec but only found it as an ebook. The only one I found was selling for $200!

    • suri says:

      Sorry for the delay in responding. We don’t carry French titles unless we are using them as educational texts in high school. Alliance Francais in downtown Toronto has a bookstore and might be able to locate for you. Bonne chance!
