i got, Boxing Day edition

Boxing Day sucked, IMO. I did manage to get some strategic items like Curry Cashews from Holt’s. For the most part everything was the same price. I looking high and low for tall flat black boots and was denied everywhere. If I did find something, it was too big, ill fitting, or just plain crap. I’m going to try the Zola’s warehouse sale for some boots.

I did find some things on the 27th at Girl Friday where everything was 50% off. I got 2 nice waist belts from Toronto company Brave Leather. I only have a picture of one, and it’s white and not silver. The other is black with embroidered elastic connecting the leather ends.

I also picked up a cute houndstooth tshirt from Engine9

  1. I prefer shopping for clothes and footwear on sale in January. Many stores still have a pretty good selection, the prices are better and the crowds are smalller. Let me know when you’re going to Zola. I live nearby and can meet you.

  2. I agree totally. It sucked beyond belief. I shouldn’t have bothered getting out of bed so early. Oddly enough the only bargains I found were at the oddest places like Cassis which had pretty much everything under 15. But that was pretty much about it. Oh and a really cute tweed jacket from Smart Set. Which was again surprising since it’s awhile since I liked anythig there.

  3. I avoided the malls with a passion. And I didn’t shopped until late, late in the afternoon. I just had one route (Yonge & Eglinton) and stuck by it. And I was pretty satisfied with what I bought at the smaller stores. A lot of items were either 50% off or I was able to haggle to even lower prices because it was the end of the day.
