Great deals can be found on clothing samples, seconds and new stuff not yet available in stores by Canadian designers Gentle Fawn and Dace. Don't leave without picking up some handmade tasselled pasties by the Continental Pastie to shake your sillies out. 416-466-3759.
Easel does it
Get inspired by all the clever works shown at the OCAD 88th Annual Student Exhibition, then ride your wave of creativity all the way to Aboveground Art Supplies' fourth annual tent event this weekend (May 9-11). Located in the parking lot between the store (74 McCaul) and school, the sale includes a wide selection of artists' materials - obviously - plus fancy notebooks and much more. 416-591-1601.
Has it been that long already? Preloved (613 Queen West) celebrates its eight-year anniversary with a fashion show and sale (Smirnoff's in on it, so expect vodka) featuring its spring/summer 2003 Between The Sheets collection, made from vintage bed sheets. Come by the store Wednesday (May 14) during the day for 30 per cent off, and then catch the runway action at Habitat Lounge (735 Queen West) at 6 pm. Cocktails and sale to follow back at the store. 416-504-8704.
