The Holiday Sample Sale at Gypsy Co-op

The mindless grip of consumerism that grips the city each holiday season is now in full force. I have never been a fan this season, it's really for kids. My years in the retail business helped turn my feelings from a minor annoyance to hatred. It has soothed over the years because I can appreciate all the parties. There are all kinds of sales going on right now carrying boring, standard and cookie cutter gifts. On the other hand, you can get a unique gift created in Toronto and I have the perfect sale to start your search.

Join Juma, House of Spy, Wonderlust, Hyphen and Milk on December 2, 2006 for the annual designer holiday sale at Gypsy Co-op (815 Queen West) from 12pm - 6pm. Milk will be spinning tunes while you shop. Only food could make this partnership of fashion and music better. Brunch will be available until 4pm. Find that perfect gift or a show-stopping outfit for that holiday party. The hosts and other designers will have frocks, pants, skirts, coats, sweaters and shirts at discounted prices.

Designers Liz Consiglio and J-P Guarraci started Hyphen in 2002 and in just 2 years time they were winning awards. Hyphen is available across Canada and the US. TFI resident Hannah Melville is the designer behind Wonderlust. Her empire now includes Canada, Mexico, US and Japan. Brother and sister duo, Alia and Jamil Juma created Juma in 2003. High profile retailer Fred Segal carries Juma as well as other retailers across Canada, US and Japan. Former lab rat Wendy Wong started House of Spy in 2000. Her designs are available across Canada and the US.
