Recently, a friend and I were walking along Broadway just west of Macdonald on one of what have become my precious few shopping excursions. Ever the intrepid neighbourhood blogger, I insisted we pop into any newish shops we came across. First up, the shoe and accessories outfit called Shofi, which is utterly lacking a web presence. We were immediately assailed with the cry of “I give you good deal!” with which I became intimately familiar in Mexico. Turns out everything in Shofi, if I remember correctly, is designed and made in Mexico. True to their palabra, at first glance anyway, the place was chock full of good deals on cute of-the-moment swag.
A few doors down, we entered a lingerie store called Change. In an eerie bit of deja-vu, the first words out of the saleswoman’s mouth were, “Everything here is designed and made in Denmark.” I had no idea the Scandanavians were so sexy. Except for, you know, all those blonde, blue-eyed models.
