Koochee's timeless, funky but chic styles are a Queen West mainstay, and fans of this enduring line know that Koochee's annual warehouse sale offers some of the city's best values. This year's takes place Friday through Sunday (March 2-4), with dresses, pants, skirts, jackets, tops, vests and sweaters all at some very spicy prices -- nothing costs more than $40. 324 Queen West, 2nd floor. 416-593-0850.Parka maven Linda Lundström is selling off leftover high-end European fabrics from a very affordable $5 a metre. There's a minimum five-metre cut, so this is a good opportunity if you're planning a sewing project. Lundström's also unloading sample garments and seconds, for those who aren't in the sew. The sale continues until everything's gone. 255 Wicksteed (near Laird and Eglinton), rear entrance. 416-696-2818.The 10th annual Toronto Vintage Clothing/Textile Show And Sale, Sunday (March 4) at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, offers one-stop shopping for antique textile fans and collectors. The select dealers on hand are bringing quilts, linens, lace, rugs and jewellery as well as clothing. $5. 106 Trinity.
You gotta hate it when the sales are too good -- it means retailers are coming out of a slow season. Small clothing boutiques on the Queen West mall strip east of Spadina are continuing their winter sales through the coming weekend. Why not give them some business? Bedo (318 Queen West, 416-506-1580, and others) is knocking 50 to 75 per cent off winter stock, while Chameleon (282 Queen West, 416-260-2914) is offering up to 70 per cent; XOXO (369 Queen West, 416-351-0111) and La Cache (346 Queen West, 416-979-8140, and others) are taking 50 per cent off all winter goods; and Kathouse (350 Queen West, 416-340-7777) and Get Out Side (437 Queen West, 416-593-5598) are doing the buy-one-item-at-full-price-get-a second-at-half-price thing.DH *
