Vintage Shopping Spree: Trinity Bellwoods Yard Sale

So it’s well established by now that I don’t do malls or shops very well at all.


The One of A Kind Show and Sale is on this weekend in Toronto.

Online Shopping Guide: Boutiques

The second part of my online guide focuses on boutiques that carry an assortment of brands. So here we go,

Online Shopping Guide: The Brands

Online Shopping is where I live. Not only do actual shops give me anxiety, but I can shop whenever I want, in PJs, and all over the world. My favorite is definitely Australian boho shopping, so that’s a lot of what you’ll find here. But it’s not just that.

My Toronto Shopping Guide

If you’ve been here a while, you know I don’t like shopping in person. Malls, and even boutiques give me a big bout of anxiety. I don’t like the pressure of the salesperson, and I really, really like to mull things over. But even I do indeed get my butt in a boutique once in a while. So here’s a list of some of my faves – no holds barred, totally honest.

Saks Off 5th

Saks opened in Canada. I was invited to the launch of their shop in Vaughan.

Top Price For A Winter Coat?

I saw this in the paper as an encouragement to shop Canadian – to shop our local and native companies.  And I’d love to but frankly look at those prices!  The cheapest coat there is $450.  That’s more than I spent on my last two winter coats combined, and the only reason I spent even that much was because one coat was stolen and so I had to go get another one.   That’s the one beef I have about local and native businesses, as much as I’d love to support them the price tag is just way out of my reach. I know it’s because of fair wages, etc, etc.  But there has to be some way to keep the prices more in check.  I know some people can afford to spend that much, but I not only can’t, I also won’t.  To me it’s just too much to drop on one item.  But that’s me.

How much would you spend on a coat?  How much have you ever spent on a coat and would you change that?  I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions.
