VERSO_4768

VERSO featured in The New York Times

THE textile and fabric designer Julie Jenkinson was hard at work putting the finishing touches on her vintage curio shop, Verso, in a former garage. In another city, in this economic climate, opening such a shop in such a space — hidden, as it is, from the street — would not be ideal. Not in Toronto. “I love being here, tucked between the Drake and the Gladstone,” she said, referring to the two art hotels that anchor Queen Street West.
