Mother's Day bargain
RK (116 Cumberland, 416-967-7890, and others, www.rkstores.com) has come to the rescue of creatively challenged gifters still pondering what to grab Mom to avoid the "I spent 50 hours birthing you and all I got was this lousy bag o' potpourri" rant. Until the big Sunday (May 14), grateful children can grab Mommy silk pashminas in springy pastel hues along with a $25 RK gift certificate for $45. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Rethink Breast Cancer .
The sample sale used to be a covert bargain destination for fashion insiders who wouldn't dare spill the beans and alert competitors. But now, one of the biggest local promoters, Shopping Addicts Sample Sales , has launched a website ( shoppingaddicts.ca) that lets everyone in on the shop. Log on to learn about their sale at Sound Emporium (360 Adelaide West) today (Thursday, May 11) to Saturday (May 13) featuring 30 to 70 per cent discounts on hot men's and women's labels.
We're halfway through the spring cleaning season and bags of dusty clothes and forgotten Y2K survival gear are still stacked to the ceiling in your basement.

Register online for $15 and get a lawn sign, pink balloons and an event T-shirt so shoppers know you're donating some of your spoils to a worthy cause.
