Sash + Bustle’s Forever Home

The journey to our forever home wasn’t easy – undertaking a large renovation amidst a global pandemic as a small business, proved to be challenging, but also ripe with moments to be grateful for.

In late 2019 we began the search for our forever home. We knew it was time for the next step – our Queen St home was starting to feel cramped; both our team and our collection had grown so much in the last 5 years.

After months of searching we found a special Victorian building in Toronto’s historic Corktown. We instantly knew that was our home. It had the same old-Toronto charm without straying too far from the east-end neighbourhood we love so much.

In February of 2020 we signed on the dotted line and 111 Berkeley St officially became our new home. We started planning what we thought would be a 6 month renovation – slating us to open September 2020.

Then March 2020 hit and Miss Corona Virus with it. And she had other plans…

But we pushed forward! Our 6 month renovation turned into a full year. A year of starts and stops – a year of perseverance.

Our vision slowly (and beautifully) came to life with the help of so many people.

We poured a lot of love and time into creating this space. Including hand-decaling the ceiling of our Parlour Room. *RIP our necks*

But the finished product makes our hearts skip a little!

On March 1st 2021 – we FINALLY moved into our forever home! *cue fist pump*

Now we’re settling in. The first month in our forever home has been everything we imagined and although we’ve been thrown yet another curve ball, we are so excited for the beginning of a new era at S+B.

Our forever home has so many things for brides to get excited about:

  • on-site parking
  • Instagrammable moments
  • an expanded dress collection
  • private fitting areas
