Art Deco in Toronto?

Where would be the best places to find shops specializing in Art Deco? Also any buildings or interiors which would be a must-see because they would be a good example of the period.

Art Deco was a "period" in France.

You'll get a better answer in a day or two from me, and perhaps some other Torontonians.

There is a large, and very good, antique mall down at the waterfront. I spent an hour or so looking around inside. Items ranged from cheap collectibles to $10,000+ artpieces. I have read that numerous celebs go there to buy antiques. Don't recall whether any vendors had Art Deco items, but it might be a good place to check.

Sorry about that. I forgot the waterfront area in Toronto is actually called the "Harbourfront." The address for the Habourfront Antique Market mentioned above is 390 Queens Quay. Phone: 416-260-2626.

The Gardiner Ceramic Museum, on Queen's Park, across from the Royal Ontario Museum,should be on your list. There's a cluster of antique shops on Queen Street West at Roncessvalles. For building exteriors, walk through the area south-west of Dundas Street and University Avenue; there's a mix of buildings here from the 1920's to brand new.

100 Adelaide Street West is the Concourse Building, and is a magnificant Art Deco structure.
Come quickly; the developers are getting close, but there's probably a month or two before the reconstruction begins. There are plans to save some ofthe facade, but destry most of the building.
