Shopping in Toronto is rarely an easy task. The "therapy" part of "retail therapy" quickly becomes apparent as your stress level skyrockets through the roof of the Eaton Centre when you realize those jeans you want cost a hefty $70. In comparison to the ones you saw at Nordstrom, these ones are NOTHING. What's a $70 pair of jeans? You'll live, right?
When you're a student on a budget, every penny counts. So even though you're positive you'd kill that outfit so hard Joan Rivers would roll in her grave, you might want to reconsider the price tag. You probably have tuition to pay. The ultimate alternative? Thrift shopping.
What you might not know is that Toronto has some hidden treasures just waiting to be discovered. From vintage designer gems to ancient 90s fur coats, your wallet awaits cheap spending.
As a gift from me to you, here are some of my current favourite thrift store spots.
