The republic of Doyle Street

Doyle rules!

Duly Noted Stationery soon won’t be all by its lonesome on the tiny Doyle Street strip that runs between Queen and Brunswick. Come May, the letter-writer’s heaven will be joined by three indie neighbours that are equally as focused on aesthetics and beautiful things.

The longtime Spring Garden Road resident and accessories-obsessed Sock It To Ya will move its little shop from Spring Garden Place to a new home at 5431 Doyle Street, while north end furniture and accessories boutique 31 Westgate (2698 Agricola Street) will re-locate its showroom into the big, bright former Port of Wines location on the corner of Queen. Most recently, Wildflower Clothing—which has spent a whopping 17 years in its tucked away space at 5553 Clyde Street—announced that it too is joining the block party. Jill Strong’s women’s clothing and accessories boutique will move and re-open with a new look on May 1.

And just like that, the sleepy little street is a shopping destination.
