Ciao, Bella! This round of our popular signature event takes us to Little Italy. Though College Street is better known for the food than the shopping, it does have a tidy collection of beautiful boutiques that make it a perfect destination for our night out!

On Thursday October 16th, Join us for a night of exclusive shopping followed by an after party!

Part 1: Shopping 6-9pm. We will be taking College Street by storm. Get exclusive discounts from the following boutiques:

Girl Friday - 20% Off
Designer/Owner Rebecca tells us she'll have her new fall/winter coat collections in just in time for the crawl in addition to her signature dresses, Dish Denim, shoes, bags and accessories. Girl Friday was a big hit from our last Shop Crawl.

Balisi - 20% off
Balisi was quite popular on our last Shop Crawl. Their College Street location is all about SHOES! They carry bags and a few clothes as well, but here you'll want to snap up a pair (or two) from their colourful collection.

American Apparel - 10% off $5 gift card when you spend $50 or more
Leggings, T's, Uber stretchy tube dresses, athletic wear, underwear and every day staples for the Hipster wardrobe. You shop there anyway. Why not get a discount?

Lilliput Hats - 20% off
These coveted one of a kind hats are famous all over the world. They are made in-shop and have an unbeatable selection. Hats are a popular trend this fall. Snap one up at an unheard of discount

Red Pegasus - 25% off
This little gem of a store has everything from Lug bags to greeting cards, candles, earrings and even a few really funny gag gifts. Pick up a necklace, a birthday gift or a mullet shampoo...
Ziggy's at Home - Discount TBAHome decor, scented soaps and candles, lighting, house warming gifts, and much more. The only problem with this store is you might not want to leave.We are expecting up to two more boutiques to be added to this list.

Price Range? on Sep 06, 2008 @ 11:33 pm

Before I buy tickets I'm wondering what the price ranges are in these
stores? It feels kinda weird that I'm spending money to spend money
especially if I don't buy anything if everything in the store is
outside of my price range.

Price range of stores on Sep 07, 2008 @ 12:25 am

It depends what you are looking for. We always look for stores that are reasonably priced to begin with. It's the same prices as you would find in the mall but these stores are independent boutiques (with the exception of American Apparel).

The cost of the tickets covers the planning and running of the event in addition to the costs of the after party. Don't worry about not getting your money's worth. The discounts will more than make up for the cost of the ticket and even if you don't buy anything you will definitely get your money's worth at the after party. ;)

Here are a few reviews from stores we have had in previous Shop Crawls:

Freebies! on Sep 07, 2008 @ 04:35 pm

- further to MissChickie's comments - we always have a fabulous swag bag for everyone (retail value much more than the price of your ticket) and high-value door prizes. I'm sure past ShopCrawlers would tell you that the swag, prizes, and refreshments are more than worth the cost of admission!

Always a great time!!! on Sep 08, 2008 @ 10:24 am

This is always a GREAT event!!! Well worth the cost of the tickets. There is a lot of work that goes into these events and I appreciate it every time. My friend and I always find great bargains! And the swag bags are full of great freebies! I can't wait!

Please don't tell me they are sold out already!!!??? The site won't let me put in a quantity to buy my tickets!!??

oops - d'oh! on Sep 08, 2008 @ 10:39 am

Sorry about that, there was a mistake on the form. Now you should be able to get tickets no problem ;)

Well worth it! on Sep 08, 2008 @ 01:39 pm

Irregardless if you buy or not buy something from the stores, I always found the Shop Crawls to be WELL WORTH the cost. The swag bags are always amazing and the stores participating always have neat little finds in it....not to mention the after party is loads of fun! I have always brought friends with me to the Shop Crawls and every time they are amazed at the value you get for your money!!! I am actually very sad that I am going to miss this Shop Crawl as I will be living in Vancouver by that time :o( Can't wait til there is a Shop Crawl there though! I will definitely be there! :o)

YAY! on Sep 08, 2008 @ 01:58 pm

Thanks! It works now.. have my tickets! Let the shopping begin!! :)
See you all there!

Update on Ziggy's at Home on Sep 13, 2008 @ 10:56 am

They unfortunately had to back out due to a scheduling conflict, but we think the other stores will still make up for it.

CHANGE OF DATE on Sep 15, 2008 @ 02:50 pm

We are moving the Shop Crawl back to Thursday October 16th. The times will be exactly the same, we are just moving them back by one week.

It is Yom Kippur on the 9th, a major Jewish Holiday and we didn't want anyone to be left out. If you have already purchased tickets for the 9th and are unable to make it, please send me an email and I will arrange for you to have a refund.

Thanks for understanding and I appologize for any confusion. The good news is Ziggy's at Home is back on board!
