Christmas Gift Idea #2: Cell phone gloves made of upcycled sweaters by Hamilton artisan Anna Zygowski. $26 at Shopgirls.
This stretch of Parkdale has been a dusty mess for the past few months, but the worst of the roadwork is over. Shopgirls and its glitzy neighbour Made You Look are a sure-thing shopping trip if you’re looking for Canadian designs for the woman in your life. For a savoury sit-down, bite into a $6 sandwich at Boreal Gelato, which is still buzzing, even in the chilly season. (Taken with instagram)
