Hit the Lanes
Listen up, luxe label lovers. If you've got a well-trained fashion eye that lets you spot next season's trends on last season's discount rack, slide into a pair of your fanciest footwear and strut over to Hazelton Lanes (55 Avenue, 416-968-8680, www.hazeltonlanes.com) for their winter sidewalk sale.
Starting today (Thursday, January 26), the Yorkville mall's roster of high-style shops will be offering discounts of 50 to 80 per cent off. Ease your shopaholic guilt by bringing along a gently used clothing donation for the Family Abuse Crisis Exchange .
Beloved Nearly Naked (749 Queen West, 416-703-7561) lingerie guru "Miss" Maya Haidar is flying the coop at the end of January for some much needed rest and relaxation and to prep for a top-secret fashion project (stay tuned). In honour of her years of expert bra-fitting service, the Queen West panty post is holding a Sayonara Miss Maya sale. All fashion lingerie and hosiery will be marked down by 50 per cent until Tuesday (January 31).
Art of the deal
Artists with Swoon Gallery (63 Ossington, 416-629-6408, www.swoongallery.com) are de-cluttering their studios with the help of the White Elephant Art Sale. Until February 26, the gallery's walls will be stocked with original pieces by local arty types including Robert Malinowski (laminated wood wall sculptures), Lily Kim (ink panda portraits) and Maryam Keyhani (fashion-inspired paintings). Prices start at $30.
If you've been going through serious shopping withdrawal since Preloved (613 Queen West, 416-504-8704, preloved.ca) closed the doors to its shop last Sunday, find a fabulous and frugal hit at their first-ever warehouse sale (24 Ryerson, lower level), on until Friday (January 27). Pack your pockets full of cash or plastic and head to their studio for great discounts on overstock and fashion show samples. And fear not, stylish reworked clothing buyer - the Queen Street store is just getting a small reno and will reopen on Friday (January 27).
