Stop spinning in all directions – where to find the best tops in Toronto!

This post is inspired by Gelareh Saadatpajouh, Program Coordinator of Toronto Design Offsite and her love of spinning tops.

I re-discovered my love of these tiny and transportable works of art / design. And I know where you can find some well-crafted tops. Designer Tat Chao does beautiful ones in up-cycled glass stemware and Tahir Mahmood in wood. And both designers will be at the Interior Design Show this year.
