Our new Brick + Mortar hours are Wednesday - Saturday 12-6 and Sunday 12-5. We are still offering curbside pickup for those not comfortable entering the store — please choose this option at checkout. I am also delivering once a week for those that still need this option.
When you do come to the shop, we ask that you bring a mask with you. We have masks available for donation to Sundance Harvest if you’ve forgotten yours, so no sweat (donation is whatever you can manage, some loose change is just fine). You’ll be greeted with this information when with a sign when you enter the shop.
Due to COVID-19, we were closed from March 16 - June 26. The only reason we are still beating right now is because of the support of our community. We are definitely balancing challenges daily, and we are doing everything we can to keep going whilst remaining safe for our artists and community. Our community generously put together a GoFundMe to help keep the shop alive. You can read more about it by clicking here: Support Likely General. We are a micro business and everything we earn goes directly back into our community. We love you and thank you for your respect and deep care.
Here at Likely, we are motivated by responsible consumerism, empathy, and transparency.
What started in 2013 with the desire to grow multi-functional space connecting artists to the public in an organic and approachable way.
Everything in our shop is artist focused. Our staff is built of artists and community organizers, and our first priority is to provide a home for the work and expressions of women, marginalized, queer, and non-binary folks. The middle of the shop housed a gallery space where we host exhibitions from local artists once a month. We also regularly host events and workshops that need safe spaces. The back of our shop is a vintage and thrift zone sourced by Likely employees and Of Love Studio, a local collective reclaiming responsible consumerism.
Since 2014 we've created a monthly donation budget . We encourage you to let us know where you'd like to see our help! We distribute these funds throughout the community and beyond based on need each month. In 2020 we have donated these funds to Sistering, Nellies Shelter, Toronto Prisoners Project, Toronto Rape Crisis Centre, Wet'suwet'en Legal fund, Ocama Collective, Black Lives Matter, Black Legal Action Centre. We donate monthly to Ubuntu Learning Village and encourage you to explore this exceptional community.
