Big Opening: Tusk sells handmade and haute finds near Trin-Bellwoods

Founded in 2012 as a pop-up shop within Silver Falls Vintage, Tusk has thrived in the Queen and Ossington area over the last 4 years, and recently reopened next to the Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Quality and value take precedence at Tusk and shoppers can find everything from contemporary separates, bags and accessories, to denim and comfortable basics with a strong attention to detail. They make a point of carrying classic clothing that customers can get multiple uses out of.

Among its best sellers are a super soft draped tank top that is handmade in Morocco ($85) and comes in various colours that rotate all spring/summer. Accompanied by its inexpensive yet painstakingly handpicked sunglasses ($25), they are a perfect match for the upcoming hot season. In addition to clothing, Tusk also carries many Canadian accessory brands. Their leather goods line Aunt Rae is all made by hand in Toronto ($165-$350), as well as jewellery by Goldeen (Toronto) and Wolf Circus (Vancouver).

Tusk, 888 Queen St. W.
