This is a pretty store, for sure, but what I found more interesting was the history behind Streetsville. It, and several other nearby villages, existed as independent municipalities until the Missassaugans, a naturally bloodthirsty people, entered a particularly ravenous imperialist phase and conquered the peace-loving Streetsvillians. This was a dark chapter in Ontario's past that you are not likely to find in the history books.

This newer LEED-certified store adopts the usual design elements of using recycled and local materials, but it's coolest feature is that, for environmental reasons, the pre-existing ceiling of the condominium was not lowered. All the wires and tubing are thus exposed, creating a striking effect.

Though not LEED-certified, this post-Purge store still uses recycled materials and adopts the new model of eschewing cookie-cutter designs. Though attfached to a mall, the store is worth visiting, and when you do be sure to pay attention to the furtinure and fixtures. And chances are you won't miss the wicked cool photograph on the wall, depicting the interior of a local building.

Bay & Grosvenor, Toronto, Ontario
OPENED: 9/30/2011, PHOTO: 11/29/2011

This store features what I can only describe as a horizontal mural, hanging a foot or two below the ceiling, and running much of length of the store and then down a wall. The grey mural depicts stick figures intended to reflect the character of the neighborhood.

Actually, this store opened after April '99, but traffic on Front St., on the southern edge of downtown, was not too bad at 7:00 in the morning, so I parked next to the building without much fear of the Toronto Parking Enforcement agents visible through the city.

This store is small but has some cool features, on top of being LEED certified. Most striking are the brick walls with coffee-related words painted in bright colors. Also, the conference table is made from a repurposed butcher table, and the ceiling comes from an old house... in Idaho!

This newer Toronto store, in a neighborhood known as "The Junction", is lavishly decorated with unusual design elements. The tile above the bar is extremely unusual, as is the tile on the walls. The chairs and tables look vintage. On the wall is a photo of a handyman shop that used to be in the space. But what's coolest, in my opinion, are the window panes used *as decorations*, mounted on a back wall!

This store is cool in so many ways, I'm sure I must have missed something. First thing I noticed was an old photo of the area from the 1950s. But that was almost as quickly forgotten when I spotted two mysterious doors, standing for no apparent reason in the middle of the store. Do they go to another dimension, perhaps? Above the doors is a chandelier, and down the hallway is a small room dubbed The Vault, that used to belong to a bank. But be warned--that room is by reservation only.

This store has two extremely cool features. The first thing you will notice is the bright mural, painted on canvas and mounted on a wall. Then you will notice the stairwell, and if you follow it up, you will find an outdoor patio decorated by yet another mural.
