A few weeks early, but is anyone planning on going to the next Braderie de la mode Quebecoise? Or has anyone ever been to one? I don't know what to expect and I'm wondering if it's worth it...

when does the cdg for h&m come out? are h&m prices ridiculously overpriced compared to the u.s. like a lot of other things?

we're headed there next weekend...i can't wait to check out thrift shops. last time i did the high end thing, and while it was fun, nothing beats thrifting when you're traveling.

Montreal girls - I need your help!
I bought these shoes from Barney's NY last year. They're black leather flats, they cost just under 250 on sale. I love them! Today I discovered the bottom sole has thinned out completely in one spot, so much that the water from today's rain was soaking my feet!

Anybody know a good/inexpensive shoemaker downtown?

I was at VIP night earlier.

Lots of people. And it doesn't help that it's not a big space to begin with. Or maybe it just seemed that way because all the designers were pretty packed in.

I only went to check out Soia & Kyo and Mackage (want a new winter coat), so I have no opinion on whatever else was on offer. They had coats from this season and fall 07.

It was hard to browse. Lots of people combined with lack of space and racks of coats taking up what little space there was. And then you had crowds of women angling for room in front of only 2 mirrors. It was so damn hot, I was sweating a little.

It would probably be best to go there first thing in the morning.

Also, bring cash with you. There's was a lineup for the only atm machine. (I don't know if they take credit.)

^^ Oh so is the Braderie thing over? Never been there as I hate to go to those things........ Is it really worth it? Not too crazy about mackage and the soia thing.

Anyways, looking for a leather jacket, found one online, but was hoping to find something HERE. Aside from the usual (Rudsak, M1085), any other stores sell nice cut and not too expensive like 200-300 leather jackets? And please, I HATE danier, it's too bulky for me. I went to Simons, but it's super ugly.

? ? ? ?

no, there's nothing in the mid range price.

it's either h&m (but its not real leather), thrift stores (real leather but very worn out)
or
holt, u&i, etc

id suggest ebay

No, it just started. I was at VIP night a day before it officially opened.

As for it being worth it... I left empty-handed. So I guess not.

^ I guess I didn't miss out on anything then!

Boluda, thanks for the info. Yeah, H&M leather coats are usually ugly....... I guess I'll wait till they come out with some decent leather jackets at Zara....... they come out with a new style every now and then.

Carinthia Shoe Co. are very good, Mona Moore sends their repairs over there. Address is 1228 rue Saint-Marc, below St-Cath, near Guy-Concordia.
