Paper People Mitts and Arm warmers

Paper People's gauntlet inspired arm warmers and ski mitts make are a great gift idea! Priced at just $29 for arm warmers and $35 for mitts you're getting a great deal on a cozy, cute handmade item. The arm warmers have been super popular with their button detail and contouring. They're a great accessory to spice up a plainer outfit or to throw on with 3/4 length sleeves. The mitts are inspired by 80s nylon ski mitts with a longer storm cuff and are lined with t-shirt for an extra layer of warmth!

bags for back to school!

It's that time of year again for back to school and back to work. We love these great messenger bags from Cipolla. They come in two sizes and feature amazingly cute prints. She doesn't make many, so you best get yourself to Fresh Collective as soon as possible! These bags make great gifts for those people in your life that are heading back to school and need a new bag to impress all their friends. And these adorable zipper pulls from Space Cat make a great addition to any bag and are a great little gift!

Buttons are a great gift. They're small, inexpensive, and have a lot of personality. And we have a lot of buttons at Fresh Collective! Cat lover? Give them a cat button! Superhero addict? We have superhero buttons! You'll start off with a few, but believe us, buttons are addictive. Pretty soon you'll be running out of places to put them!

Father's Day Gift Ideas!

Father's Day is super-duper close and we've got some great gift ideas for all the awesome Dads out there.

Fresh Collective isn't just full of fabulous things for ladies. That's right, we've got clothes for the guys as well. Check out this wicked t-shirt by Yasmine Louis. She's using inspiration from all around Toronto for her silk screen prints. We carry t-shirts, polos and zip up hoodys, so come by and find the perfect one for your Dad soon.

Nothing quite says "I love you" to your baby-daddy like a pair of comfy Candi Factory briefs. And it's a treat for too, because you don't have to see him walking around in those ratty, old briefs he's currently wearing.
Of course, to go along with your great gift, you're going to need a card! We've got some very manly cards (blank inside) from Comfortably Lovely and Utility Grade.

Happy shopping and tell those Dads they rock!

Comfortably Lovely Vintage Goodies

We have a delightful new line of vintage greeting cards, notebooks & buttons from Comfortably Lovely!
These are all made using authentic (no photocopies here!) magazines, catalogues & maps....and all make great gifts. Below is just a sampling of what there is:

Check out the buttons made from old road maps: There's many local (Toronto) & provincial (other Ontario cities) to choose from. What great souvenirs to give to someone who's moving to one of those cities or maybe moving away & need a little reminder of where they came from!
