Spring Trunk Sale! March 20-24th. Get Ready.

We know how much you love it, so we’re doing it again!

Workshop’s always fun and crazy SPRING TRUNK SALE will be happening March 20-24th this year!

The big opening party will be on Thursday March 20th 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 ladies 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 dog faces when you can’t make it the night of the event. 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 Spring 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!

More details and sneak peeks can be found on our facebook page!

Put it in your calendar and don’t forget to join us – especially if you haven’t yet been down to check out our newly renovated space (yellow)!


The ladies of Workshop

the big road trip!

so christina and i picked up and headed to toronto last thursday in her dad’s fancy new shiny blue bullet like matrix (thanks dick!) to go and hang with our designers at the one of a kind show!

i could fill pages with trip details (like when we almost ran out of gas and ended up hitching to brockville with 40 pairs of candi factory undies and a box of eikcam ceramics) but instead i’ll just tell you all of the lovely goodies that we saw (and bought)!


jennifer glasgow, lovely as ever and in desperate need of a pee break (those shows sure can be long!), was wearing her new jersey dress – super cute, kelly green, with huge pockets and a tree print…undeniably the pick of summer! we should be getting them soon!

candi factory

candance of candi factory surprised us this show by handing us a huge bag full of her amazing undies! she, as a mother of two (two!) is a busy lady and we were honoured to get them…come over and get yourself a pair, they are certainly back by popular demand!


grace lee, the amazing ceramicist filling much of flock’s housewares section, also gave us a box of goodies – casserole dishes, vases and mugs with lovely and unusual prints…perfect for hosting this summer!

these are only a few of the fab items we brought back and had promised to us at the show – you’ll have to come in and see the rest for yourselves!

see you there!
