ellesea: nope, unfortunately. I think they only have sales when most other stores do (end of season, around July.)
ellewoods: Bloor Street from Yonge to Avenue has a lot of stores, as do the adjacent streets. The general area is called Bloor Yorkville. www.bloor-yorkville.com/
Thanks, I actually live in Yorkville area and so (unfortunately for my wallet) shop/eat/drink there all the time.

I was asking about Yonge street itself- from Yonge/Bloor all the way south, I haven't seen any nice stores at all... I was just confused about the comment that there was good shopping on Yonge itself.

after i got some broadcloth that i needed, i decided to walk down (or is it up?) queen street west (past the fabric district)...i've never been down there before, but i went for that .69 vintage shop.

on my way back, i walked into "cabaret"..you'd be crazy not to go to that shop if you're in the area. thomas runs the most amazing vintage shop. racks and racks of 50's/60's dresses in perfect condition. some uber cool collectors items like two wool swimsuits from the 1920's, loads of hat boxes and shoe boxes. and it's a very comfortable and cozy atmoshpere.

in other words..go there!

Yes! In Portage Place (downtown) second level near the water fountain


Anyways, does anyone know a good place downtown (around yonge street, eatons centre and/or queen street) that sells good rock-ish clothing .. that's affordable?

Does Holt Renfrew go on sale for more than 50% off (not at Last Call though)? If so, when is the last markdown usually? Thanks.

^ there is a huge sale right now...even though it's officially half off, plenty of items are very well-priced.

*men's sale is crap, btw.

Pastry - Isn't Thomas at Cabaret amazing?? Such a sweet man. Did you meet Elizabeth? She is incredible!

West Queen West has some AMAZING stores - I don't know why more people havent picked up on this:

Besides Delphic (which is a give-in, but so hard on my wallet), go see Kasha and Alexia at Pho Pa - they are amazing stylists and Alexia carries some cute lines like Chulo Pony.

You must go to Boutique Le Trou

Kama Kazi style boutique is great - and Debra carries TROVATA, which I love.

you can find nice inexpensive dresses at Girl Friday.

Meg is amazing, and meg herself (the owner/designer) is really nice. She has some really nice dresses, all the time.

then there's Hush, Huh, Mothership, Seveneighty, Comrags (!!!), Psyche, Response, Klaxon Howl (men's), 69 Vintage...the list goes on.

(and I am somewhat biased since I work for the Art & Design District).

For those of you who haven't visited the area (Queen b/w Bathurst and Gladstone), I highly encourage you to do so.
