Magwood, the beloved Queen West vintage boutique, is closing for good this month
Magwood, the upscale vintage boutique on Queen West, will be closing its doors for good at the end of the month. The shop, which recently got a shout-out in Vogue’s online guide to Toronto, has been a west-end institution for almost five years. (It started out at Dundas and Dufferin before moving to its current location next to Trinity Bellwoods.) As of December 24, passers-by will no longer be able to stop in and marvel at owner Sarah Magwood’s impeccable selection of demure 1950s frocks and intricate jewelled broaches; however, it’s not all sad news: fans of the store will soon be able to book one-on-one style consultations at a brand-new Magwood studio space, and they’ll also be able to browse an even larger selection of vintage pieces on the shop’s website. Sarah Magwood, who’s also a designer (known for her made-to-order wedding ensembles), will also be branching out into a few new areas, including custom home decor and handcrafted wedding invitations.
