Good kitchen carts in Toronto? Where to buy?

Hi everyone,

This may be a bit off-topic (home cooking supplies/tools?) but does anyone know where to buy a decent butcher-block top kitchen cart in Toronto (John Boos, Chris & Chris, Catskills type carts - not IKEA)? Kitchenstuffplus.com has a few but not what I'm looking for. Have been searching for days and all I can find is US websites that ship to Canada. Tried all the Canadian websites for Home Depot, Sears, Canadian Tire, Rona, Lowes, Costco, Leon's, The Brick... Having a surprisingly tough time finding local stores that sell decent kitchen carts or portable islands. Weird.

Any tips on local stores you know would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    High Tech on front just east of Jarvis is where we bought ours - they customize to the size you need. About to sell ours on Craig's list if u r interested ;)

      Many thanks for this tip, thebutcher! I will check out High Tech - I'll also look for your link on C-list depending on timing (any chance you will list tomorrow (Sunday)?)

      P.S. Interesting: I also just found online that Black Loon Millworks sells kitchen islands:

      Nice to see a Cdn. company doing beautiful craftsmanship, too bad they didn't have more modern, less cabinet-like cart selections to match the gorgeous butcher block surfaces they are creating.
