What is the Toronto Stationery Show?
TSS is a juried event featuring stationery vendors and sponsors primarily from Toronto, but we welcome makers from near and far, bringing one-of-a-kind paper goods and stationery accessories to you. View our past events to see our previous lineups! Our goal for each event is to share our favourite stationery pals with you, and to introduce up-and-coming artists that you may not have known! This online platform brings paper enthusiasts together from near and far.
When is the Toronto Stationery Show?
The upcoming event is on Sunday, April 30, 2023.
VIP entry: 10am to 11am (more info below!)
FREE general public access: 11am to 6pm
Where is the Toronto Stationery Show?
The upcoming event will be at: 1153 Queen Street West in Toronto
Previously Curry’s, Woolfitt’s Studio & Gallery is over 9000 square feet! There is a great convenience store right beside the venue if you need to purchase snacks/drinks, and there are a ton of food options on the block.
Please note: There is NO SMOKING on the premises, NO PETS allowed inside (except for service animals), and NO OUTSIDE FOOD can be brought inside due to the nature of paper related products.
Is the show free to the general public?
Please note: We reserve the right to refuse entry and swag bags to anyone that is not being fair, courteous and respectful to other attendees, especially in the lineup.
Is the venue accessible?
Please note: The event is all on one floor. While there is a long ramp leading up to the front door, the entryway space is fairly narrow.
What payment options will the vendors and sponsors be accepting?
This varies based on the exhibitors’ preferences. We assume that all vendors and sponsors will be accepting cash, while some will also be accepting credit/debit payments.
We will be giving swag bags to the first 100 people (ages 10+) in line for the show, courtesy of our wonderfully generous vendors and sponsors! One swag bag will be given to each person starting at 9:45am that has waited fairly in line. Please do not hold a spot for anyone else and be courteous to others. We reserve the right to refuse entry and swag bags to anyone that is not being respectful.
Again, there is NO LINE CUTTING allowed. You cannot hold a spot for others, they will have to go to the back of the line.
