Thanks to Northern Voice, we’ve been lurking on the back channel all week. Enjoying the conversation, getting tips, advice, sharing links and just sometimes forgetting we’re still logged in, oops. But thanks to this lovely portal into the world of a Vancouver social media chat, I learned about a sale this weekend at Discollection.
A â€œFILL-A-BAGâ€ EXTRAVAGANZA SALE!!!
Come to Discollection this Saturday at 12pm and be ready to shop till you drop. We are offering four sizes of bags ranging in price from $20 – $175.. You get to fill the bag with as much stuff as you can squish in.. so be creative, get rolling, folding and practice packing, so on Saturday you can get the best bargain in town [discollection.ca]
Discollection is run by Kim (Kdon) – stylist and shop keeping woman extraodinaire. If the name sounds familiar, it’s probably because with her help that Kris Krug (local photography guru) has put together some captivating and unique shots, as featured on Flickr. It was he who tipped us off about this not-to-be-missed sale this weekend.
Unfortunately, I’m leaving bright and early tomorrow for Victoria for a girls weekend with my mom, sister and niece. It’s a shame I’m missing out on the event, especially since I just started a new job and REALLY need some new clothes (I haven’t gone clothes shopping in years… yeah, no joke).
There’s no better time to ‘shop local’ so be sure to check it out. There are some great vintage items (including accessories, shoes, boots) and the fill-a-bag style of sale means you’ll leave with a huge haul of goods and your bank account won’t hurt. Discollection is located at 324 W. Hastings Vancouver, BC (across from Dressew) [GoogleMap].
