Riverside TO is excited to announce the arrival of BRIKA in our community, calling 768 Queen Street East (at Saulter Street) home. Opening the doors of its second permanent location, BRIKA is a gift concept shop that sells high quality, well-crafted goods by the most talented artisans and designers. From birthdays and graduations to baby showers and bridal parties, BRIKA offers a highly curated selection of beautiful pieces for every occasion.
“We’re thrilled to be joining the diverse mix of exciting retail shops and restaurants in the Riverside community,” said Kena Paranjape and Jen Lee Koss, BRIKA’s Co-Founders. “The overwhelmingly positive reception we have received has already made us feel welcome in this fantastic neighbourhood.”
BRIKA was founded by Kena and Jen in 2012 when Jen reached out to Kena after reading her lifestyle blog. After a series of coffee dates, the two realized they complemented each other’s skills perfectly – and both wanted to start a creative business. Within a year they had launched BRIKA, beginning as an online business before opening its first retail space at 642 Queen Street West, at Palmerston, in 2015.
BRIKA carries pieces that range from home goods and art to jewelry, accessories and gifts for little ones, including a selection of goods you won’t find anywhere else. From Charlotte & Castel marbled soaps to Avril Loreti tabletop textiles and adorable baby onesies, BRIKA’s modern, heirloom quality pieces (many of which are designed by Canadian artisans) speak for themselves when seen in person. In addition, the store will soon feature a balloon bar, which offers a fun and exclusive selection of balloons fit for celebrations of any kind.
