WHERE: Queen’s Park Circle, booth 203 & 204

Besides being able to buy discounted subscriptions (60% off newsstand prices) and back issues ($3 a copy) of Spacing at Word On The Street this weekend, the magazine is set to launch a handful of new merchandise items.

ITEM 1: Montreal Metro buttons and magnets

PRICE: $20 for pack of 25  /  $2 for button  /  $3 for magnet
To complement our very own Toronto subway station one-inch buttons and magnets, we’ve created a whole new batch that replicate the tile and platform design of Montreal’s metro system. There are 25 buttons in total that you can buy as a set ($20 for buttons, $25 for magnets) or as single purchase ($2 for buttons, $3 for magnets).

ITEM 2: Toronto neighbourhood buttons and magnets

PRICE: $2 for button
Spacing is going micro-local with the introduction of buttons based on neighbourhoods. We’ve created 44 one-inch buttons inspired by communities that stretch across Toronto. For $2 you can grab a button for The Junction, Bloor West Village, High Park, Swansea, Blansdowne, The Annex, Parkdale, Chinatown, Kensington Market, Roncesvalles Village, Liberty Village, Little Italy, Queen West, Dufferin Grove, Kingsway, Baby Point, The Danforth, Leslieville, Riverdale, Harbourfront, The Beaches, Cabbagetown, The Village, East York, The Island, Wychwood, Rosedale, North Toronto, Forest Hill, Willowdale, Don Mills, Mimico, Long Branch, Markland Wood, The Bluffs, Regent Park, Bayview Village, Rexdale, Old Town, St. Lawrence, St. Jamestown, St. Clair West, Bendale, and Little Korea.

ITEM 3: Neighbourhood t-shirts

PRICE: $25 for t-shirt
The sister product to the new neighbourhood buttons is the neighbourhood t-shirt series. We’ve created three designs that lump together neighbourhoods from the old city of Toronto.The shirts come in all sizes for both men and women.


  1. Bloor and Lansdowne. Before the hipsters moved in, it was better known as “Crackton” 🙂

  2. Koreatown, not Little Korea. No Portugal Village, Corktown, Chinatown East?

  3. Given the threat to libraries how about some library buttons? Maybe featuring pics of the library buildings themselves or interior shots?

  4. I personally would like to see the neighbourhood buttons modelled after the individual street signs put up by the BIA. Granted not all of them have street signs, but it’d be a nod to the old acorn-topped signs that the City is slowly doing away with. Since it’s an odd shape, perhaps magnets would be better. You could even get the BIAs involved to split costs and distribution.

  5. I’m very excited about the Montreal Metro buttons… but where can we get them in Montreal?
