I heard about Shabby Chic from a friend of mine, and when I was in Toronto in November I decided to take an afternoon drive out to Bowmanville to see this place. When I walked in, I saw the owner Rhonda talking to a customer, she looked over at me with a warm smile and I started browsing. I couldn't believe how talented she was, she took old worn out relics and had them looking like NEW!! I ended up buying a few things and gave a couple away as gifts (which the recipients really liked). I will definitely go back next time I am in Toronto, it was so worth it. My problem when I went the first time.....didn't bring a big enough bag! Seriously though, whoever reads this should swing by. It's located out in the country so it accentuates the charm!
Nice meeting you Rhonda!!
