The Toronto Urban Collective makes its debut

There was no denying that a good cluster of Torontonians – yes, I’m talking about peeps of the neighbourhood, their mini-me’s and their fellow furry friends – made it down to 99 Sudbury to check out the beautifully made goods by home-grown talent last Sunday. Everyone was welcome. The pop up market was the first of what will hopefully be a series in the future. There were door prizes which were a sweet touch to the event, thanks to the generosity of the vendors.


Nichole Hoang, Co Founder of the Toronto Urban Collective explained how she reached out to Etsy sellers who were based in Toronto, specifically to showcase their work in this wonderfully curated event. The result was a vast variety of pieces of art, homewares, jewellery, artisan foods, screen printed apparel, as well as unique accessories, all under one roof. There were even some interesting concepts on show, such as The Saltwater Collective – ‘an impact focused lifestyle and clothing brand committed to protecting the Earth’s life support system – the oceans.’ 20150719_143322Just one great example of how a lifestyle brand and social responsibility can marry and create beautiful, sustainable and eco friendly products.

The gallery of vendors can be seen on TUC’s website, in case you weren’t able to make it down on the weekend. Watch out for the next event in fall…
