About the Spacing Store


Since 2004, Spacing magazine has been creating unique Toronto-centric merchandise, including the now iconic Toronto Subway Station buttons and magnets.

In December 2013, we opened a holiday pop-up shop, Torontopia, in the Queen & Bathurst area to test out the idea of a permanent basis. With overwhelming positive feedback, we embarked on a true brick-and-mortar store. After much searching, we opened the Spacing Store opened on November 21, 2014 at 401 Richmond.

The Spacing Store has become to the go-to location for authentic merchandise that captures the spirit of Toronto and its neighbourhoods. We work directly with designers, artists, and makers who are producing unique objects that celebrate our city.

The Spacing Store has been named the city's Best Unique Gift Shop in 2015 and Best Place to Find Unique Gifts in 2017 by BlogTO readers. The Globe and Mail says, "Spacing makes you believe in a better city," and the National Post called our subway buttons "the local fashion statement of the year."
