because I shopped their much but I loved the concept and befriended the store’s owner... a very passionate woman named
Helen Nestor. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I saw the for rent sign in the window. I thought Dandelion Mud Pie had joined the list of local retailers that became a casualty of the recession.
Sometimes it’s nice being wrong. Last week I got an email from Helen and Rebecca Morton, her new business partner and owner of Organic Abundance, an organic food market, announcing they were joining forces and sharing a space. Dandelion Mud Pie was moving to a more prominent position across Yonge St. and would no longer be hidden behind a pizza take-out counter.
The grand re-opening is tomorrow. There will be all kinds of samples, goodies and giveaways. So, if you’re planning a visit to North Toronto consider stopping by and saying hello.
