    they used to have 50% off every friday but i went into my local store and they told me this is how theyre doing it now:

    textiles are 25% off if you spend up to $10, 35% off from $10-$20, 50% off $20 and up.
    sun-mon, certain tag colours are 75% off.
    tues-sat, certain items are 2 for 1. i got 4 books for $5, big savings there since their books can be expensive. ive gotta go back on 2 for 1 plate day hehe.

    hopefully other bargain hunters will be glad for the info

    Thanks for posting this information! Wish I had read it earlier so I could have scoped out a store on Friday. Will keep information in mind for future visit.

    Do you guys know if there are locations in downtown Toronto? I'm a huge thrifter (as in I only shop at thrift stores unless I need undergarments) and moving to Toronto worries me because I have never seen a thrift store or Value Village etc. I know of some great vintage places on Queen West but vintage doesn't equal cheap and with rent prices I won't be able to afford vintage anymore unless it's from the thrift store.

    There's a Goodwill at Sherbourne & Bloor. They usually have a 50% off everything or 75% tag sale each week. Also Double Take at Parliament & Gerrard. Not as big but I've found some decent picture frames to repaint.

    Wow I feel blind now. I frequent those areas because I have friends that live around there and have NEVER seen a thrift store! I guess I will need to check the area out better next time. I guess I should do more walking around and less transit if I miss all the good places to hit!

    I have only known about a few second hand stores in Yorkville that I have been in and it was so not a deal for anything...I mean it would be a deal if you wanted high end brands that are priced accordingly. I have found my luck finding name brand and vintage things for cheap is so much better at Goodwill and Value Village where they don't know what they have. I'm not sure how well I will do in Toronto though since people seem more brand aware there. Guess I will find out and if all else fails will keep frequenting the one near my sister LOL!

    I heard a quilter tell how one can get silk bridesmaid dresses for $25 and use the fabric for quilts. My first thought would be to repurpose the silk for another garment! I was in Fabricland and the good silk duppioni is about $36/m.

    Goodwill Burlington store does not sell textiles. I am really doubtful about finding silk dresses out in Halton/Hamilton but Toronto might be the place to find such an item.

    Goodwill must have closed the Sherbourne & Bloor store, just like it closed a donation centre locally in Ancaster the last month. Missed my chance to scope textiles ...unlikely that I can go to Dundas & Dixie store in Mississauga on Friday.

    Goodwill stores will reboot and return in some locations in Toronto in 2017-how did this story not get more attention?
