Toronto's Narae Kim and Elie Nehme first met in the painting room while studying architecture and design at Carleton University. Seven years later the newlyweds have created a unique line of all-natural facial masques that focus on cultural traditions in skincare. Artifact Skin Co. masques combine elements of aroma, memory, place and beauty traditions from across the globe.

Son of a Peach


On the edge of Burlington's historic Village Square is Son of a Peach, a modern mom and pop pizzeria serving handcrafted pizza made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Lit up above the main window is a neon heart and a pizza slice. It was love at first sight when I first discovered the pizzeria with its whimsical decor and artwork. And then love at first bite when I tried their pizza.

Gattina Swimwear


Gattina Swimwear recently opened a studio in the Empire Times at the corner of King Wiliam and Hughson. The building dates back to 1890 and formerly housed the Hamilton Times newspaper which lasted until 1920. King William has seen a transformation over the years, emerging as a cultural artery that connects to the James North arts community. Occupying a studio space on the second floor, designer Natasha Gatto has created a cozy workspace for Gattina Swimwear, taking advantage of the high ceilings and natural light.

The shop's offering has evolved over the years. From carefully curated vintage to Canadian-made clothing and handcrafted accessories and paper-goods, you'll find unique goods for everyone and all occasions.
