Elle and Eve: A Consignment Store Helping the Planet

In March, 2015 Kirill Zaretsky opened up his dream – a consignment store with an edge and charitable component.

The store is called Elle and Eve and its magnificent.

First a little bit about Kirill.

Kirill is a father of two beautiful little girls  – Elle and Eve.  He has a different sort of background than most retailers, as a successful fundraiser with such organizations as The Canadian Cancer Society, The Canadian Red Cross, Scarborough Hospital Foundation and most recently a seven yet stint with Veahavta.

As a fundraiser, Kirill learned about the needs of the marginalized and the importance of corporate and non-profit partnerships. Similarly, while at Veahavta, Kirill ran a short term program to secure and sell stuff from community members, to help the homeless.  Again, the concept was wild and different and it worked.

Veahavta raised over $40,000 through Kirill’s initiatives. The rest  is history.

Today Eve and Elle’s motif is predicated on that model – assisting those in need a through for profit environment. The 10,000 square foot environment is filled to the brim with magnificent furniture, art, entertainment pieces and more – some modern and some vintages.

The store, located in the Dufferin and Lawrence area,  is a pickers delight and a place you can spend hours finding  items that will stand out in your home or cottage and establish your taste as unique and individual. And the beauty of Elle and Eve is that profit is not the only bottom line. “After working for charities for most of my life I just knew my store would have to include a component of sharing and caring. ” , Kirill said.

“My dream has come true and I couldn’t be happier. I feel that I’m serving our community and our planet. ”

Elle and Eve is located at 50 Samor Drove.  It is open 7 days a week and private tours are available.  If you are a seller or a buyer drop by or give Kirill a call at 416 721 5660.

“There is nothing like a person living out his/her dreams.  And there is nothing like buying pieces for your home  knowing you’re helping others”. Kirill concluded.
