How to shop ethically in Hamilton, Ontario

This Port city of Hamilton is just as unique as the clothing stores we found. With its  growing arts and culture community, its no surprise that Hamilton has one of the oldest Art awards program of its kind in Canada and has been at the forefront of recognizing creative talent.  The city is a great mix of the old and new from vintage to new sustainable fashion.
