Last Chance!

The Hadassah-Wizo Bazaar has been an annual event in Toronto for the past 84 years and this year will be it's last. I've always wanted to attend this shopping extravaganza and this year I'm making sure I do.
The event is being held Wednesday, October 29th from 9am-7pm in the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place. Apparently people start lining up at 6am to be the first to get in and take advantage of the unbelievable deals they have to offer.
I won't be lining up that early, but I do plan on spending many hours there checking everything out.
So mark your calendars, book the day off work and shop 'til you drop!

What's New on Orfus Rd

I have visited the past two weekends. Knew it would be busy on the long weekend, but not as crazy busy as it was. There were hot dog vendors and ice cream trucks lining the street!! Some stores were so busy I didn’t even bother going into them. I thought it would have died down this past weekend due to everyone having spent all their money the weekend before, but was so very wrong.
Some of the new and/or notable things I came across during my visits: Labels is gone (no big loss). Bluenotes has opened up in a newly renovated space and Sirens has moved next door to them. Jessica Nails has reduced the price of their OPI nail polish from $8 to $6. Also check out the China Glaze line of nail colours for $4. The Nine West outlet (53 Orfus Rd) has fabulous round toed shoes with four inch stacked heels and an ankle strap in black, gray and red. Originally $135, reduced to $67.50 now priced at $9.99.
Roots has a variety of tees marked down to $9.88 or 2/$22 from their organic line. Check out Costa Blanca for a great wardrobe staple for fall: the silk chiffon, bowtie neck blouse in black, white, purple or blue for only $10 each.
Costa Blanca is also offering 2/$10 and 3/$10 on numerous items. Be warned though, there are no change rooms and you aren't allowed to try on items 'on the floor'.
