Andrea Hopson, a former VP at Tiffany and Co., and Martha Grace McKimm, a marketing exec, opened Hopson Grace in Rosedale in 2015. The corner boutique, selling high-end items like walnut salad bowls, Japanese knives and hand-painted coasters, quickly became a neighbourhood fixture for amateur chefs and dinner-party enthusiasts.
They originally used the upstairs space for events, like supper clubs or flower-arranging workshops, but now the second floor is set up as a swanky homewares department, showcasing linens, furniture and accessories from brands and craftspeople around the world.
