Covet Garden: Cody’s Little Shop Of Curios

“I used to wonder what it would be like to live in a curio cabinet,” says Cody, a Toronto shop-owner and lover of vintage objects, such as mourning art, old photos and all things funerary. In 2010, Cody opened the Chief Slavage Co., a second-hand shop stocked with antique finds that reveal her personal passions. While searching for a location to set up shop, Cody stumbled upon a combination storefront/apartment that she could rent. Cody quickly filled the space with her shabby-chic aesthetic and, even though she keeps her living quarters separate from her shop, there’s almost no distinction between the look and feel of the two spaces. Flip through the latest issue of Covet Garden for a peek at Cody’s collections of vintage treasures.
