About Us


We are Eliza and Toshi and we have created this space as a gallery for our crafts as well as a boutique for our collection of vintage clothing. Everything in our gallery is made by our own hands. Eliza is a textile artist who makes rugs, embroidered tapestries and loves to mend clothing. Toshi is a woodworker who makes furniture and cabinetry using hand cut joinery and other traditional techniques. 

Our boutique collects, mends and sells second hand clothing. We love high quality materials, iconic canadian styles and vintage designs. Each item is carefully inspected and if necessary, professionally repaired by Eliza. On certain items, she also uses hand mending and embroidery to create artful and unique pieces and collections.

The Side Room opened in July 2021 and still operates a physical location - with separate inventory -  as an extension of the Old Peterson Road Gallery in Maynooth, Ontario -32994 hwy 62 N. 20 minutes north of Bancroft, 30 minutes west of Barry's Bay, 45 minutes south of Algonquin Park's east gate.
