Pop-up Pick: Local purveyors of luxe natural beauty products team up for Green and Good’s Gladstone debut
Toronto’s retail pop-up scene is gaining momentum, with new shopping opportunities emerging (and then disappearing) all the time. We’re keeping a lookout for the temporary shops you don’t want to miss.
Green and Good, a fresh pop-up boutique launching this week at the Gladstone, aims to show Toronto beauty fanatics the benefits of switching to cleaner skincare and makeup products. Natural beauty and lifestyle mavens behind the project, Sally Glover (of online boutique Fresh Faced) and Tara Miller (from Health Hut) will peddle physical products from their own web shops, as well as showcase a slew of other top-quality green vendors like Province Apothecary, Ella’s Botanical’s, and Graydon: Clinical Luxury by Nature. On top of browsing a veritable oases of fantastically healthy, non-toxic products, at certain times shoppers can also bag free goodies like personalized facial serum from Julie Clark of Province Apothecary, or indulge in complimentary treatments like hand and foot massages from Graydon Moffat (of her eponymous brand). And—clearly catering to the Gladstone’s youthful neighbourhood—west-enders recovering from a boozy weekend can even take advantage of a Sunday temple massage with Aromacentric’s “After Party Tonic.”
