Happy Black Friday! It's the perfect day to tell you about the pop-up shop that accompanies "Guillermo del Toro - At Home with Monsters", currently showing at the AGO.

The exhibition, (which I wrote about in this post), runs until January 7th, so this shop will be open over the holidays. It's filled with a great assortment of mysterious and spooky themed things, sure to please any ghoul loving person on your list.

While the gift shop is the last stop for visitors to "At Home with Monsters" exhibit, you can get to it from the other side without going to the show too. Note that if access to this unique selection is gifts is what you're after, without the charge of admission, the gallery is always free to get in on Wednesday evenings.

That said, the AGO is wonderful and I encourage you to see the art as well as shop. There are so many great things to see there right now, in addition to the del Toro exhibition. The Florine Stettheimer show is absolutely stunning. My friend Meghan and I recently saw it so stay tuned for an upcoming gallery post, chock filled with excellent art. We also had dinner at a terrific new-to-me restaurant on Spadina, that I'll tell you about.

Wishing my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving, and everyone else a great weekend.
Thanks for reading,
