The best deals on fashion brands like Blume, Vans, KitchenAid and Bauble Bar.
This week's sale picks are all about the most fun stuff, like a bejewelled "flying pig" catch-all and a boho hanging basket for the kitchen.
We make our choice based on price, quality, practicality and availability in Canada. As with most sale items, there's limited stock and sizing.
(Note: All prices are subject to change, and some products may differ slightly from the item pictured.)
This jewel-covered catch-all from Bauble Bar is playful and practical as it can hold all the bits and bobs on an nightstand, from rings to earplugs. $60 at Bauble Bar.
This printed bath mat has a colourful geometric print with tassels, giving it a retro feel. It’s also made from a raw cotton weave and is safe for the washer. $19.99 at Simons.
Planning to spend the spring birdwatching? This detailed notebook is made just for that. It has two pages per sighting with room for drawings, notes and an index. $7.94 at Amazon.
The KitchenAid stand mixer is always a standout sale item because it’s a premiere kitchen appliance. This one is five quart and comes in select colours like aqua, rose, metallic chrome and ice. $429.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond.
Bucket hats are still very much on-trend and this one by Vans has a wide brim and the signature checkered print. $24.98 at Little Burgundy.
Last summer there was a run on fans and portable air conditioners in B.C. because of the heat dome. This tilted floor fan is powerful but light enough to move around. $59.99 at Canadian Tire.
