A new stop on your Toronto itinerary: The just-opened outpost of Old Faithful Shop . ("Good quality goods for simple everyday living" is their motto.) Cofounder Walter Manning worked on the renovation of the 100-year-old storefront, "wallowing in dirt, dust, and chance," as he says. "Our intention was to grace the space rather than disgrace it. Renovations are always a gamble, but we're pleased with the results." Above: The shop is located in the happening West Queen West neighborhood.  Above: "We tore away a wall and revealed a brick archway, pried up old tile and restored the original floorboards beneath, repaired rotting floor joists and laid hexagonal tile, and installed wall moldings and millwork throughout," Manning says. Above: A row of Redecker Dustpans and Brushes ; $34.95 CAD ($27.32 USD).  Above: Ceramics from West River Field Lab . Above: An array of classic kitchenwares. Above: A tropical plant from local shop Dynasty Toronto . Above: Manning added a jib door to the new millwork.   Tour Old Faithful Shop 's original location in  Keeping the Faith: Vancouver's Modern General Store , and go to the  Remodelista Shop  to see some of our favorite goods from the store.
