Last year when Stacey opened Tinyhousemama in East Toronto I knew my artwork would be a perfect fit. Fast forward to this week and I had the opportunity to meet her and display my original artwork in her beautifully curated studio. If you are in the area stop by and check it out. The pieces will be up until the middle of May.
I’m a small town girl who grew up in Peterborough ON. It turns out Stacey went to University here and visits family nearby regularly. She is a talented visual creator and stylist. If you enjoy interior spaces like myself you already know of her Instagram famous tiny home.
“After years of co-owning a popular hair salon in Leslieville, I began to envision myself creating a more small scaled personalized shopping and hair experience, one that encompassed all my passions under one roof. When I discovered the single story little flower painted building on Gerrard St East’s rapidly gentrifying strip, I knew it was a sign and Tiny House Mama Beauty + Goods needed to become a reality.”
“A small flowered building set in the middle of Torontos east Chinatown belongs to a collaborative space that houses both Heri Furniture, who has both a showroom and workshop in the back and the curated stylings of Tinyhousemama Beauty + Goods. The front shop is a collection of Stacey Lipstein's passions brought to life, beautifully bespoke hand crafted pieces by Heri Furniture (his famous stitched stools and benches), a collection of Vintage Moroccan rugs, cute round pillows made locally, Gorgeous paper goods to fit every occasion, millennial pink ceramics made in Montreal. As well as beauty goods locally foraged and produced. And of course the simple turquoise hair chair that services clients during operating hours. This place truly is a collaborative space bringing all passions to life at Tinyhousemama Design+Beauty outpost in Torontos East End.”
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and you could definitely make a list of items you would be happy to have after visiting the shop. I’ve chosen a few of my favourites in case you need help deciding. You can shop online if you are not in the area.
I had a wonderful day with my friend Jessica who captured all of these photos of me and showed me around this end of Toronto. Spring is officially here, get outside and enjoy it this weekend.
