Travel Swellness: WANT Passport

Want Passport

Having spent a fair amount of time in airports in the last couple of years, anything that makes the time more than just pleasant but actually enjoyable is something I welcome more than NKOTB and Backstreet Boys touring together (OK, maybe that’s an slight exaggeration — nothing beats NKOTBSB :) But this comes pretty darn close to that heavenly joint boy band in my eyes.

Introducing WANT Passport, three boutiques in the Billy Bishop airport in Toronto. Brought to us by the people behind the brand WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie and the WANT Apothecary, the stylish shops sell covet-worthy items; goods so covetable that your friends and family might want you scrambling to buy them a gift from your trip from these shops rather than anywhere else during your travels.

From the chic WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie handbags and accessories and to-die-for (and hard to find in Canada) beauty goods from the brand Aesop (I am in love with the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm) to the sleek Persol sunglasses, now you have a stylish spot to shop in over at Billy Bishop once you’re done noshing on the lounge’s complimentary almonds and cookies.

      Oh, yes, definitely do! If you REALLY care to check it out, you can access the one at arrivals (ie. so you don’t have to necessarily have a flight, go thru security, etc.).

        Amazing, didn’t even think about that. Thanks for the tip! xx

        No prob! I only know this as that’s the boutique we went to for the media event :)

    This reminds me of Flight 001 on Fourth St. in Berkeley, CA. A classy little shop that sells luggage and other nifty travel items like solar-powered phone chargers.

      I’ve been to Flight 001 in New York. It’s sort of like that, but chicer (from what I recall of Flight 001, which is more fun and funky)! Definitely check it out if you’re in Toronto at Billy Bishop.
