ARTarium is a truly one-of-a-kind shopping experience, and one of my all-time favourite Toronto stores.
ARTarium sells local, handmade art, crafts, jewelry, clothing, books/zines, and music.
If you’re looking for a last-minute Christmas gift, I would highly recommend this place. Who wants another generic bath product set or sandwich press under the tree this year? No one! How about some awesome local handmade art which the new owner can brag is the only one of its kind in existence…?!!
You Like Art!
How about your very own robot?
See the cat door frame on the right? I wish I had one of those in my house!
ARTarium also features “Fun Zone Time” once a month, when local bands perform live! Here are the Backyard Boys performing on didgeridoo and guitar on the December 18th edition of Fun Zone Time.
The paintings on the back wall in the photo below were done by one of the very talented owners of ARTarium!
See the painting on the top left? The art nouveau style one? My favourite one? I happen to know that it’s waiting under the Christmas tree for me!
ARTarium is located at 389 Spadina Avenue (near College) in Chinatown, across the street from the Kensington Market neighbourhood.
