Toronto's second set of Anthropologie doors opened quietly at 80 Yorkville last Friday and I've not yet been. Instead of popping in for a drool yesterday when I was in the area, I hit an internet cafÃ© to check e.mails (lugging the laptop around on a multi-appointment day is just foolish). Sheesh.
Then again, in an hour at the internet cafÃ© I spent just $4. Let's not speculate on how much larger that money number would have been had I hit Anthro.
The new store's opening agenda includes customer events such as "Repurposing T-Shirts" on July 29 (take an old tee in for a silk-screening and embellishing workshop with Anthro's design team) and "Cardi Party" on July 30 (take a cardigan in for a lesson in updating with buttons, trims, changing the silhouette). The July 31 official opening from 7 to 9 pm will benefit the Nature Conservancy of Canada, and include a "Bits & Baubles" workshop on re-working old accessories.
For me, Yorkville is way closer and easier to get to than the Shops at Don Mills location, so I can visit any time, dream-come-true-like. Am fairly certain, however, that such easy accessibility is the beginning of a beautiful love/guilt relationship.
Um... see you there?
