Shopping for a gift or something you’ll love?

Roncesvalles is chock full of independently owned shops, with an eye for the unique. Looking for made-in-Canada, hand crafted, or ethically-sourced? Looking for beauty, quality or quirkiness? Find what you love and get friendly advice from shop owners and staff who care.

Going on a date?

Whether you’re looking for something to do on a first date, or making time to spend with your significant other, Roncesvalles Village has all you need to set the scene and create a memorable moment.

Show your Love for Roncy!

Happiness can be found in practising gratitude. Think of things great or small that you have the good fortune to enjoy given you’re living here in this country, in this city, and in this community. There are many ways to give back or pay it forward. Volunteer at an event. Donate to a cause. Sponsor a festival or new initiative. Give away things you no longer need. Shop local. Be kind to those in need.

Established in 2009 in Toronto, Coal Miner's Daughter is the product of many nights discussing how lovely it would be if we could start up our own little shops and share our love of jewellery and fashion with the world, little did we know at the time that we would end up building it together!

Coal Miner's Daughter is made up of owners Janine Haller and Krysten Caddy, along with an amazing team of shop gals. Janine worked in wardrobe at Stratford, the Canadian Opera Company, and Young People's Theatre after studying Costume Design at Dalhousie. Interesting fact: Krysten's great grandmother Rosilla (Rose for short) was a real Coal Miner's Daughter and worked at the Dominion Dress Company in Brantford, ON in the 1930's.
