Fabric Stores & Other Great Places in Toronto, Canada

My husband and I were in Toronto last week. Without our kids. Which was fun, but I missed those little guys! I was there for 3 days, but he was there all week (for work). We rode bikes. We ate great food. And most importantly, I went to some fabric stores in the fashion district.
Toronto Fabric District

Are you going to Toronto? Check for fabric store listings.

Or do what I did.  Walk down Queen Street West and into the fashion district. That’s where many fabric stores are located. Some are better organized than others. All are well-stocked. Oh, and don't miss King Textiles, located just off of Queen Street West. It was really well organized and the shopkeeper was friendly to me. However, I found all of the stores' prices to be higher than the US. So despite all the choices, I bought nothing! It was still fun to shop.

We went to Niagara Falls, too.
Niagara Falls, Canada Side
Niagara on the Lake and beautiful flowers Niagara on the Lake. A super cute town. So many beautiful flowers were in full bloom.

Girl Friday. I loved this store and this dress. But it was originally $140, marked down to $90. Obviously, I did not buy it! But it would be an easy dress to make if I could find a pattern.

Caprese Salad Sandwich
A tasty place we found to eat was Sliced, located on Bay Street. I loved the Caprese Sandwich.

My husband, who likes microbreweries, wanted to try Mill Street Brewery. Located in the Distillery District, it was another great place to eat.

Greg’s Ice Cream was a great place. We went there twice. My favorite flavor was Toffee Coffee ice cream.

It was fun to visit such a big city, but I’m a small-town girl at heart. I like when people are friendly and I enjoy peace and quiet. If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know I don’t like to spend a lot of money. And everything in Canada was more expensive. But I truly enjoyed being able to walk and bike around the city and look at the eclectic shopping Toronto offers!


  1. Yes, unfortunately everything is more expensive in Canada. We pay a lot in taxes but when you're used to it you tend not to notice. Hamilton also had a nice fabric district on Ottawa st. I'm glad you had a great time, I miss Ontario so much!
