I am a personal trainer, nutritionist, student, boxing gym rat, published writer and a MOM! I live in sweats 7 days a week. No lie! I go through phases of color coordinated cuteness versus comfy camp style plaid fleece! I am absolutely embarrassed to admit the number of tank tops I own! I have spent a small fortune on Lululemon, Nike and Adidias. I have indulged over the years in trendy labels like Juicy Couture , Bebe and Ed Hardy. It’s insane really!
Thank goodness I discovered FLAIR TRADE while power walking down Yonge Street. I stopped dead in my tracks. Purple boots and a Gucci bag caught my eye. How could I have not known about this adorable consignment store located at 3241 Yonge Street? I had to go in and get the 411. Rita greeted me with that gorgeous smile and gave me a tour.
I have always been a recycle re-use girl. I love trading and borrowing with friends and clients. Over the years I have been a proud recipient of lovely designer bags and clothes from clients. Nothing makes me prouder than hearing a client is cleaning her closet due to weight loss!! Flair Trade is a charming store. The concept was perfect. My girl’s could bring their clothes in every time they dropped a size! They could purchase gently used designer outfits at fabulous prices as they shed weight. Bikini competitors and fitness models can pick up designer items for photo shoots. This is a win win situation.
The icing on the cake is the workout clothes for sale. It’s easy to sport a weekend warrior wardrobe when prices are affordable. Summer is on the way. Don’t forget Flair trade also offers a huge selection of designer sunglasses. Designer bags make gorgeous gym friendly choices.Toting sneakers and toiletries never looked so chic.
If you are buying:
All items are season appropriate. They are gently used and in style! Rita and her team are always up to date!
If you are selling:
The pricing is more than fair. The payment is speedy and can be done online.
The store is intimate. The staff is warm and welcoming. They take the time to explain pricing, brands, policies, you name it.
Local love brings me back. Greeted with a smile, “hello Mercedes” and loads of personal shopping experience.
Flair Trade is a fabulous find! I am not their only fan. They were written about in THE TORONTO STAR March 3, 2012.
Spring has sprung. Take a cardio walk to FLAIR TRADE!
