New Flagship Teatro Verde Store Opens

Teatro Verde YorkvilleBeing the shopping editor at Where Toronto, I attend a lot of new store openings, but I am particularly excited about the opening of Teatro Verde’s new flagship location at 100 Yorkville Avenue. (I also wrote about the opening in my May Hot Shops, that’s how excited I am that I’ve devoted time twice to this!) The store officially opens its doors to the public tomorrow, but yesterday there was a sneak peek for the media, which turned out to be a bit of a tease—so many beautiful things but no shopping allowed at this occasion as finishing touches were still being put on the store. So I did a lot of drooling and coveting instead, making a list of all the things I must—and will—come back for in a few days. Tops on my list: Fresh’s patchouli soap, pretty pastel notecards from Elum and Mumma & Bubba organic products for my friends with new wee ones.

I tell everyone about Teatro Verde. It’s a home and lifestyle store where I can always find something for myself (often more than just one item, which is often to the disdain—or is it drain?—of my bank account). It’s my first stop when I need a birthday, hostess or house warming gift. I am guaranteed to find something special, something beautiful, something whimsical. You’re guranteed lots of “oohing” and “ahhing”—and a return invite—if you show up with a gift from here.

The many vignettes throughout the two-storey boutique showcase the various collections assembled here. Rather than just row upon row of soaps, you’ll find stylized rooms conveying different moods and even eras, from art deco Hollywood to a grand banquette dining space to a serene garden gazebo. It’s not just about buying stuff here, it’s about living a certain lifestyle.

If you’re looking for something special to bring back to the folks at home, make sure you stop by Teatro Verde. You won’t leave empty-handed, I promise.
