Small-Mart General Mercantile

Small-Mart General Mercantile is a cool shop tucked away in an unsuspecting hallway just off of Stratford's busy main thoroughfare, Ontario Street. Although its slightly off the beaten path, once you find it you will be amazed at the interesting and well curated products we have to offer... design-driven items, novelties and curiosities, and an assortment of the unusual you will not find in any other store in the world. Our selection includes jewelry from Toronto artist Biko, the Red Canoe Heritage Brands line of Canadian inspired clothing, unusual metal sculptures from Toronto artist Mark Clark, and hundreds of gift ideas for the discerning creative person in your life. And should you happen to have a sweet tooth, make sure you drop in and get yourself some retro candy. Small-Mart is well worth the visit.

Part novelty, part concept, part nostalgia, Small-Mart has a character that is all its own. Created by Jeremy and Carrie Wreford, owners of Bradshaws, just two doors down.
