About Us

Forty-nine years ago, Ruth Silverberg opened the doors to one of Toronto’s original consignment stores. A single mother to four children, Ruth found herself sharing clothes within her circle of friends to maintain a professional image without breaking the bank. A strong believer that quality clothing and key accessories instill confidence and empower women to be their best selves, Ruth decided to carry this philosophy out on a larger scale. Second Nature Boutique was born! 
Ruth’s daughter, Kary, now runs the store that her mother started years ago. Kary Dick, a fashion designer-turned-entrepreneur, has stayed true to her mother’s original vision. A graduate of both fashion and business, Kary paired her education with her talents of trend forecasting, ingenuity and continual forward thinking to undoubtedly keep Second Nature a continuing success. She oversees the boutique, always having Ruth’s vital philosophy in mind: shopping should always be a positive experience where the service is just as important as the product. Second Nature remains a neighbourly space, continually supporting and encouraging women to live their best lives.

Second Nature boats two fabulous stores of high-end clothing, shoes, bags and jewellery. Offering both new and gently-used designer labels–at a fraction of the retail cost–Second Nature has something for everyone! Experienced stylists are always on hand to assist both shoppers and sellers, ensuring a positive and supportive experience at every visit; and frequent visits are encouraged, with new pieces arriving hourly! 
Whether looking to buy a new piece or sell something of your own, Second Nature Boutique is a credible and trusted source within the Toronto fashion scene!
