Vintage Crawl Toronto — Double Your Pleasure, Fun

46204402
Ransack and dozens of other vintage stores will be open til midnight on Thursday April 17th for Vintage Crawl Toronto, with special deals to entice you out. Ransack will be offering DOUBLE our usual reward cards stamps, so 2 stamps for every $10 spent on clothing! You could fill an entire card if you get one dress or jacket! Plus, if we are half in the bag in a happy way, it might be a great time to haggle on a piece of furniture. So drop by our place or your local or favourite vintage shop (list of participating stores here), maybe check out one you’ve never been to before (like us, waaaay up in funky Bloordale!). Great night to venture into vintage, the way of the future!

Winterblahs Sale

Are you currently functioning at a high level? What is your secret?!? We are feeling like hibernating squirrels in a quasi-vegetative state, trapped in an isolated cabin on the cold side of the moon, alternately scarfing down cinnamon buns and gnawing through our own tails. So let’s get through the last hump of winter, together. As motivation for all of us to meet up over at Ransack the Universe, we agree to sell you some cool item of vintage anything for 25% less than the already reasonable sticker price. Applies to all departments, including stuff that has never been on sale before! The sale will continue until late February, not sure exactly when. Come drag something awesome back to your nest.

Something Is Afoot

Er, feet. Shoes, in fact. None other than Elephant Shoes. It’s a new year so change must be coming to 1207 Bloor. We are welcoming into our space some friends from the wrong side of the tracks, for an infusion of creativity and energy. We must all hang together or assuredly we shall all hang separately, and all that. What’s this new fangled devilry all about you say? Get with the times, you curmudgeons! Stop by sometime and you’ll see. Onward and upward! (Spoiler: Coming in 2015: nail care salon/sheesha lounge/Nissan Dealership!).
