18 Waits is a common ground for like-minded individuals. It is a lifestyle as opposed to simply a brand or fashion label. It’s a way of life inspired by a joie de vivre and an appreciation of the finer things in life like an old pair of leather boots or a child’s painting. 18 Waits has an old European mentality which, at the same time, takes inspiration in nature and the natural flow of the earth. It is a lifestyle which adheres just as much to Parisian cafés as it does to old English pubs, 1920s New York speakeasies, wood cabins by the lake, old upright pianos, poetry, literature, and 1970s rock and roll music.
The clothes are built well from the finest fabrics appropriate for each item within the collection. There is virtually no detail overlooked and thoughtfully addressed. These items are meant to be worn well, enjoyed, loved, and destroyed.

Euclid Farms is a small-scale urban flower farm and floral studio, located in West Queen West. We grow chemical-free cut flowers from May to November, support other local growers, and import when necessary. We are 100% flower foam-free, recycle our vases as much as possible, and continue to work to reduce our use of plastic with every arrangement and bouquet that we sell. We truly believe that teamwork makes the dream work and we value the input of all staff at Euclid Farms. Five brains are better than one!
Euclid Farms is owned and operated by Shannon Whelan.
We think it’s very important working with natural products that we protect our natural world at the same time. We support and shop locally as much as possible, sourcing our flowers from local farms and relying on imports only when necessary. Therefore, reducing our carbon footprint.
Most flower farms use chemicals to force more growth on their plants. These chemicals affect the air that we breathe, and the working conditions for those working with them. Unfortunately, most imported flowers come from lower income countries, where safety regulations are not in place. Workers are not treated fairly, paid well, and are subject to health hazards. In addition to the above, imported flowers need to be flown in from other countries, creating unnecessary carbon emissions.
While importing flowers in January and February is necessary, we always source locally first. In terms of packaging, unfortunately our society has become accustomed to using single-use plastics. All of our packaging is recyclable, reused, or compostable. When a plastic-like barrier is necessary, we work with compostable plant-based variants to ensure that we are never giving our customers things they need to put in the garbage.

Many people fall in love with floating after just one experience in the tank – we’re no exception to that rule. We first floated in 2011 and have spent the last 2 years or so trying to figure out how we could introduce this powerful experience to more people. At first it was a weekly stroll through the forest, dreaming up the perfect float centre and strategizing as to what that manifestation would look like. Two years later, we are opening one of the largest float centres on the east coast here in Toronto.
Our motivation to create this centre stems from our belief that floating, as a practice, can provide benefits to the majority of people who decide to lie down in a float tank. Floatation is amazingly simple, very powerful and extremely versatile. People are drawn to floating to find relief from physical discomfort and stress, encourage personal development, or simply for some peace and tranquility. Inevitably, most people end up harnessing some combination of the many reported benefits. The most common testimonials are profound peace and relaxation, deep concentration and heightened creativity.
Our master plan is to make floating accessible; to give everyone the chance to float, as regularly as they desire. We offer some of the lowest rates in the industry and we’ll have all sorts of programs which will allow more people to step into the comfortable stillness of the float tank.

We use our own mother yeast, born by mixing flour with water, left to acidify at high temperatures to obtain a natural fermentation all of which brings you finished loaves so traditional (and delicious!) – unlike any we’d ever tasted outside of Italy.

The 5,000 square foot New York-style loft features skylights, French Arch windows overlooking the city streets, and long wooden beams accentuating the high ceilings. The gallery ensures its artists can present their work in a relaxed and social environment, while allowing its visitors to walk around freely and learn about the art.
Twist transcends the stereotypical notion of an art gallery, and focuses on lifestyle as well. It is a place where anybody can walk in and feel comfortable – not only the art-enthusiasts, but also those who know nothing about art. The gallery works close with its guests, keeping them in the know regarding upcoming events and exhibits the space is hosting.
Twist Gallery also ‘twists’ into an event space outside of gallery hours. During the evenings and weekends, Twist Gallery is a sought after venue for weddings, receptions, company events, and the like. Recommended countless times, Twist has hosted over 100 celebrations.

We are a general interest bookstore, with an extensive selection of contemporary fiction, small press, art, design, and childrens’ titles. We believe in the power of the written word, and that stories are essential to building a community, which is why we frequently host events and launches for local authors and run a popular storytime program for preschoolers. We believe in the beauty of books as tactile, physical objects, and celebrate them as such. Our original window displays are widely beloved and showcase both new and classic titles.
Come to Type and find not only the book you want, but the book you didn’t even know you wanted.
