Tiny but mighty art gallery Zsa Zsa needs some new bijoux, so it's hosting a fundraiser with some very sweet prices on fine art -- everything is under $200! Every piece measures one-foot-square or less, so they fit even the tiniest home (as well as the tightest budget). The Spring Break lineup includes some of the city's finest gay male artists and their heterosexual male admirers, including A-list names like Andy Fabo, Michael Balser, Andrew Harwood, Benny Ramsey, Andrew J. Paterson, Paul Petro, Keith Cole, Luis Jacob and many more! The works are available for previewing (by appointment) through Friday (March 30), and a big closing reception/party/sale happens Saturday (March 31), 7 to 11 pm. 962 Queen West. 416-537-3814.
High-end furniture retailer Ridpath's is desperate to make room in its warehouse, so practically everything taking up floor space in the no-frills east-end storage space has been marked down 50 to 75 per cent from its regular price. Items include pure wool Indian dhurrie rugs, $100, down from $745; woven natural wicker loveseats, $125 (regular $575); and a china cabinet in figured maple and burled walnut, formerly $12,685 and now priced at $3,170. It's the first time Ridpath's has ever had a warehouse sale, and so much traffic is anticipated that the tony Yonge Street showroom will close for the three-day event (Thursday and Friday, March 29 and 30 from noon to 9 pm, and Saturday, March 31, 9 am to 6 pm). If you plan to go, wear old clothes -- the space is so cramped that your designer duds may be in danger. 197 Bartley (near Eglinton and Bermondsey).
