Find quality new and used items at Hidden Gems

The Hidden Gem Thrift Shop, located at 1860 Eglinton Avenue West, offers new and used items at competitive prices. Jamileh believed the Fairbank Village area needed a local thrift store so she opened the Hidden Gem to provide quality items with low pricing to the Fairbank community.

In her shop, you can find brand name, premium quality second-hand items that range from clothing, home appliances, dishware, toys, and lots more! 


Opening soon, Gifted Minds Montessori & Piano is encouraging Torontonians of all ages to try the Montessori method of education, specifically for piano lessons.

Gifted Minds: A unique school for children with unique learning abilities

Sarah opened this business for her love of children and her interest in education for all ages. She began learning piano at the age of 5 and has 20 years of experience as a teacher in Canada. She became inspired by the Montessori philosophy of teaching in that all people develop and learn differently. Her dream is to establish a Montessori music school. Gifted Minds Montessori & Piano is located at 1916 Eglinton Avenue West and will be opening in early August 2018. 

These new businesses reflect an increasingly diverse and growing community within the Fairbank Village area. Despite challenges brought during the LRT construction along Eglinton Avenue
West, business owners are persevering. We encourage
