The gift guides are coming! Starting next week, we're showing off the haul we've hunted down for this year's holiday season, and that means Sweet Deals is going on hiatus. We wouldn't want you missing any discounts, though, so here's a rundown of some late November and early December budget shopping ops to mark in your calendar.
There's no need to grande jeté up Spadina to Casa Loma for this year's Sugar Plum Fair. The event has moved to the National Ballet School's swanky new digs at 400 Jarvis. The event runs this weekend (November 18 and 19) and admission is $8. www.nbs-enb.ca.
