"Toronto entrepreneur gives vendors their own brick-and-mortar retail nooks"

Colleen Imrie's The Nooks – three storefront marketplaces on Danforth Ave. – give creatives a chance to sell handmade goods without the cost of setting up a shop.

For someone who isn’t an entertainer, Colleen Imrie certainly knows how to put on a show. Imrie, the owner of The Nooks General Store at 2005 Danforth Ave at Woodbine, has two shops that are close to each other on either side of the street.

nookFEST brings together artisans and entrepreneurs

Entrepreneur Sean Kung’s concrete homeware business, 1842, acts as a physical outlet for his creativity.

Compared to his “boring adult job” in digital media, creating concrete planters and lights is “a way to get that hands-on tangible work in,” he said.

Kung was one of more than 40 vendors at this year’s nookFEST. The event took place Sept. 9 on Woodmount Avenue and in the laneway behind The Nooks’ design store.
