Save the Date: TRUNK SALE! Sept 22-25

i’ve found a sure fire way to perk up your friday!

the ladies of workshop have finally announced the date of their fall TRUNK SALE!  i know many of you have been waiting for it (i got the emails!) so here it is: Sept 22-25! The big opening party will be on Thursday September 22nd at 6pm where there is sure to be the best of deals, some fun goodies for munchin’, and me at the change rooms acting as the evening drill sergeant (i know you guys love it)!

The fun doesn’t end there though, because we’ve decided to officially hold the sale over for the whole weekend – this is for those of you who give us those sad puppy faces when you can’t make it the night of the event.  And because the sale is going to go on for 4 days, we have even more designers involved and even more great canadian made stuff at fantastic prices!  but don’t forget that after sunday at 5pm, everything magically turns in to a pumpkin (goes back to the designers), so don’t miss it!

for those of you who are new to the cult of the trunk sale, here are the basics: once in the winter and once in the fall workshop invites a few of their favourite designers to participate in our trunk sale: they ship us tons and tons of great clothes, accessories and jewelry which are from past seasons collections, slightly damaged items, weird sizes (the xs people clean up at this event!), samples, etc!  our designers get to clean out their studio spaces and our customers get to pad their closets!  the deals are great – up to 70% off!

put it in your smartphone now and join us!


just wanted to let everyone out there know that i ordered duct cleaning online (seriously, my first online purchase), that workshop is going to have a makeover (keep your eyes peeled…our signature “boudoir” may get an overhaul!) and that our much awaited SPRING TURNK SALE is right around the corner!

so…save the date: MARCH 24th 6-9pm…see you at Workshop for great deals on past collections, samples, slightly imperfect items – have something nobody else has… support independent designers while you assert your individuality! (-:
