From pop-up shops to super discounts to sample sales, there is a heck of a lot happening in the city over the next few days. You know what that means? Come Monday, your wardrobe is going to look extra fabulous — or perhaps you will have found most of your Christmas gifts. Either way, there will be some major credit card damage, but it will be worth it. Here’s a guide to the best in shopping this weekend.
The Narwhal pop-up at 104 Ossington
Uptown is heading downtown this weekend and setting up shop on Ossington. Luckily, uptown just so happens to be in the form of our favourite shop, The Narwhal, and it is selling off a huge selection of its coveted contemporary brands — Rag & Bone, Helmut Lang, Acne, Preen, Mara Hoffman — at up to 80 per cent off.
The Narwhal pop-up shop, 104 Ossington, 11-7 p.m., Dec 15-18.
Holiday Gift Bazaar at “V” Concept Store
It’s currently a winter wonderland over at “V” (69 Vintage’s curated concept store) and from Thursday to Friday it will be hosting a Holiday Gift Bazaar featuring locally-made gift items fromIsak & Inger, Nettie Blanche and Ruth Weil (to name a few).
Holiday Gift Bazaar at “V” Concept Store, 198 Walnut Ave., 12-6 p.m., Dec. 16-18.
Complex Geometries and Jeremy Laing end of season/sample sale
Jeremy Laing and Complex Geometries are two of our most favourite Canadian brands. On Friday they will come together under one roof to sell off their end of season samples. There are no words to describe how awesome this is. It’s one day only, and you can count on fighting us for their discounted goods until the bitter end.
Complex Geometries and Jeremy Laing End of Season/Sample Sale, Jeremy Laing Studio, 207A Cowan Ave. 3-7 p.m., Dec. 17.
