KENSINGTON

I recently took a trip to kensington with one of my fellow Deja vu naturals, we had a fun fun fun. Kensington is one those places that has a little of everything. A little vintage, a little unique, alot of natural, and alot to see. It is one of those places I always visit and shop. Believe it or not it has some of the most unique things you will ever find. It is one of the places I go to get some of my natural products like my raw honey.

I met some great people on my recent trip and took some great pics.

We came across two really great stores that had some amazing natural products for hair and skin.



Spotlight

I came across this great shop called Tribal Eye owned by Anthony Richards. I love his energy, and his sense of humour. We spent a long time in the shop looking around and even got some organic black soap not the "painted soap" as he said they sold in many stores. He has been running the store for over 25 years and recently moved to Kensington Market. His art work is divine, he sources each piece directly from the artists and can tell each customer the history of the piece. Simply put he fell in love with African art and beauty.

In addition to all this Anthony products are all handmade, everything from Oils, candles, and his creams. One of his biggest client includes the Body Shop. I am proud to say he is Deja vu Spotlight. If your ever in Toronto Tribal eye is located at 73 Kensington Ave, Toronto Ontatio, M5T 2K2. Check it out!!
