If you're a verging-on-obsessed lover of retro looks, better cancel your Saturday (January 22) plans. You won't want to miss the INESRA (I'll Never Ever Shop Retail Again) Beat The Chills Sale (315 Albany, second floor). Featuring wardrobe treasures from the 40s to the 70s in sizes ranging from 2 to 20 and a ton of killer accessories, this is one of those everyone-leaves-a-winner studio sales. A labour of love for organizer Kerry Knickle , the day-long event is one of eight held during the year and features more that 1,000 pristine vintage fashion pieces - some dry-cleaned, some museum-grade, all awesome - at seriously reasonable prices. Cash only. 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. 416-707-1695.
Before the month is up, take advantage of Secrets from Your Sister 's (476 Bloor West) clearance sale, where bra and panty sets from hot high-end brands like Lejaby, Fantasie, Freya, Princesse Tam Tam, Panache, Prima Donna, Piege, Change and Passionata are slashed by 50 to 70 per cent - just in time to get your under outfit hottied up for Valentine's Day. 416-538-1234, www.secretsfromyoursister.com.
Remains of the day
While most Boxing Month sales are now in the slim-pickings stage, there's still some pretty good scavenging to be had. If you're one of the lucky ones at the far end of the shoe-size spectrum - I mean you, 5 and 10s - and have no problem stomaching Bloor Street pomp, then strut on down to designer footwear central Corbò (131 Bloor West) for up to half off last season's stock. 416-928-0954.
