question for toronto-area readers

Later this month, Allan and I are gong to Vermont for a wedding. Ray, Allan's oldest friend (who I've known 30 seconds longer than I've known Allan), is getting married. He and Lindy, and her two kids, are hosting a very informal wedding and party at their home with a tropical theme - Hawaiian shirts, leis, a pig roast, a bonfire.

Do you know where we can find fun tropical-themed attire in Toronto? Maybe a store with vintage clothing, bowling shirts, Hawaiian-style shirts? Most cities have at least one such store, and I'm sure Toronto is no exception. Ideas?

I had a similar situation, with great trouble. Having struck out at most retail outlets, I ended up getting stuff at Goodwill after looking at Value Village, Salvation Army, etc.

Didn't you know? "tropical-themed" in Toronto means not wearing your parka. :)

Hm, that does not sound good. I figured some place on Queen West or in Kensington Market would do the trick. We have no time or patience for going to too many stores.

If Toronto can't oblige, we'll have to order online.

Heh. The party's in northern Vermont, way north of - and way colder than - T.O. :)

Well there was a place in Kensington Market... when I lived there in the '80's... so no guarantees now!

Well, this question was a bust.

We saved a lot of time by ordering Hawaiian shirts online. And we saved the international shipping and duties fees by having them sent to the home where we're staying.

It's a little nerve-wracking because I don't get to try on my clothes til right before the party, but I have something I can take along as back-up.
