kind exchange

Pay what you can for a bag of clothes this weekend

With a dozen locations across Toronto, the Kind Exchange is now home to about half of Toronto's closet castoffs. The local resale chain specializes in (mostly) gently-used threads at bargain-basement prices, and "fill a bag for $20" sales are now common at their various locations. But the holidays are a time for giving back, and the city's packrats are getting the gift of a lifetime, thanks to their first-ever PWYC sale this Friday through Sunday (December 12-14) at their original location at 611 Queen St. West.

Here's how it works: Grab one of their bags (don't bring a trash bag or novelty Santa sack or anything) and head down to the basement (not the main floor, where they keep most of the primo stuff). Fill a bag with threads and pay however much you can afford, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society. To keep things in check, they provide a suggested donation amount of $15; if you can't come up with that, they ask shoppers to stick to one bag per day.
