Gift Shop

The gift shop offers seals and sealing wax – made by Waterstons of Edinburgh for the Bank of England since 1752 – as well as early 19th century “penny” ink bottles and quill pens.  Postcards and note cards are available, including in-house productions.  Also for sale are books on Canadian postal history and many titles about Toronto past and present – its people, its architecture, its rivers and ravines – and ways to get to know them better.

Proceeds from the gift shop, as well as a small percentage of postage sales, benefit the museum and help to keep its doors open seven days a week.  Your purchases at Toronto’s First Post Office help to maintain an important piece of Toronto’s history.  For hours and how to get there, click here.
