You know Christmas has arrived in the 'hood when Santa is spotted ordering fries from the Maymo's Fry wagon. I would think that delivering toys all over the world requires some extra calories.
For the 15th year in a row, Victor Bax Custom Tailoring on Adelaide Street has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland. Since Victor retired, the business has been run by Victor's brother Enrico, and the charming display is a result of Enrico's ex-wife's 20 years of collecting the tiny houses.
Regular customers look forward to the annual display, which is set up in November. There's also a Christmas tree decorated with Santa Claus ornaments.
In addition to the houses and other buildings like the firehouse on the bottom left, there are fanciful items like a penguin-occupied igloo, a gingerbread house, and a tree house.
Every free bit of space in the store not taken up by fabric and other tools of the trade is filled with ceramic buildings lit so you can see the people inside.
I wish my readers a safe and happy Christmas (or holiday of your choice), and want all of you to know how much I have appreciated your support and thoughtful comments on my blog. It is immensely gratifying to see something that is a true labour of love for me enjoyed by so many people all over the world.
