Tory Wright of Presto Paper & Home has been a supporter of Covet Garden for years now, so this post is both a thank-you note to the Toronto-based designer but also a notice of her delightful brick and mortar store on Yonge Street in Summerhill Village. Wright is also a champion of designers she discovered during her 28-year-career in career in the gift and greeting card business. We stopped by the shop last week to check out the latest arrivals in the store.
Wright opened her Summerhill Village store in 2013. She has sourced a selection of stationery and writing implements as well as housewares such as candles, mugs and shopping bags from all around the world. This summer, the Presto! shelves are stocked with journals, planners and other stationery items in super saturated hues of coral, orange, purple and pink. We love the bright palette in this photo, so we had to take a shelfie!
Of course we're big fans of Wright's own creations, such as her Tab-a-lets — clip on metal letters and symbols that are great for decorating gifts or making personalized garlands. We are especially taken by the colourful new collection pictured above.
While paper goods are the shop's mainstay, there is a nice little collection of prints and other art objects, such as this oversized, arrow-shaped, hand painted wall charm by Great Lakes Goods.
