Christmas Gift Ideas: get a jump on holiday shopping at the Drake General Store’s weekend warehouse sale

It’s pretty early to be thinking about Christmas, but smart shoppers seize bargain opportunities where and when they arise. Opportunities like the Drake General Store’s massive weekend warehouse sale. The hipster gift shop, which is soon moving out of its Dufferin Street warehouse, is offloading all kinds of merchandise at rock-bottom prices. Throughout the weekend, piles of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and shoes will be up for grabs for just $15 a pound. On Saturday, the company will also be auctioning off a slew of vintage furniture and home decor accessories, some of which were used in its hotel and stores. The only downside: the Drake’s annual sales always draw a crowd, so we expect this special, one-time-only version to be utterly packed.

By The Pound Sale, Oct. 26, 11 a.m.–5 p.m. and Oct. 27, 12 p.m–4 p.m. 442 Dufferin St., Unit I. 

Furniture Auction, Oct. 26, preview 11 a.m., auction, 1 p.m. Pre-register for the auction on the store’s website.
