Peach Berserk: "Go berserk over colourful clothes" Top 5 Page for this destination Toronto Shopping Tip by MissAntarctica2002

Toronto Shopping: 210 reviews and 254 photos

Peach Berserk is beyond description, but I'll give it a whirl. For starters, the decor is completely outrageous. The walls are painted in wild colours and the whole floor is done in a mosaic of broken dishes and things. It is located on Queen Street West in the Fashion District.

The proprietor, Kingi Carpenter, is a funky, spirited gal who could be mistaken for Cyndi Lauper. She designs all of the clothes and fabrics that Peach Berserk sells.

Even if you're not in the market for clothes, it is worth stopping by just to look at the place. Oh yeah, if you're afraid of dogs, keep an eye out because Kingi often has her very sweet and harmless but big dog in the shop.

What to buy: Peach Berserk sells a wide range of clothes, accessories and home decor items featuring Kingi's signature over-the-top colours and screenprinted designs.

In the past I have bought a blouse and hair accessories for myself there, a necktie for my Dad, and oven mits with muscle men on them for my father-in-law.

The only caveats I would give about Peack Berserk is that the items tend to be pricey and that you should pay special attention to the quality because sometimes their quality control is a little lax and the printing and sewing isn't up to snuff.
