    Toronto Get-Together?

    hi folks!

    i'll be in Toronto for a few days the weekend of April 26th to help my mom with her balcony garden.

    would anyone be up for a visit to a MAC store and coffee or dinner???

    since we only have two counters here in London, a visit to a MAC store is a treat for me!!!!



    post here or send me a PM...

    if most of you won't mind hanging out for a while with someone old enough to be your mom, i'd really like to be able to say hello in person!

    Janice - i think you should plan a trip up this way sometime. wouldn't MAC offer you a tour of the original manufacturing facility in Markham?

    Re: Toronto Get-Together?

    okay, here's what i was thinking -

    would the Yorkville Store be acceptable to everyone? it's at the intersection of the subway lines so that would make it fairly easy to get to.

    how about mid-afternoon at the store, followed by coffee or an early dinner somewhere nearby? i know there's still a Toby's near Yonge & Bloor and i haven't eaten there in years!

    this will be the afternoon of Saturday, April 26th - 3:00pm?

    anyone??? anyone?

    Bueller?



    this weekend...?

    i realize it would probably be better right after a collection comes out, but we all know how crowded the stores/counters get then.

    Re: Toronto Get-Together?

    Hi, thought I'd come out of my comfortable spot in lurk-dom. Doesn't look like you're getting much response here - not a very good reflection on my fellow GTA'ers.

    FYI, Toby's is no more. In fact that whole block is gone as they are building an 80-storey condo on that site.

    I'd love to get together with a fellow MAC addict. MAC on Bloor is one of my favorite haunts. Sephora is now down the street so that might be a nice addition to your shopping trip. Of course, there's always the MAC Pro store on Queen, thought there's not a lot else around there for us older gals

    At the point, I'm not sure about dinner but I'll get a better handle on that by Saturday. Never know when hubby might say "Oh, didn't I tell you?"

    PM if you're still coming to TO and we can exchange cell #'s

    Re: Toronto Get-Together?

    oh yeah, i forgot they were replacing my favourite old Harvey's location with yet ANOTHER massive condo development.



    i'll PM my cell phone number to you, Allie, but i'm wondering if we should try again when all the young'uns aren't still writing exams???



    then again, maybe it'll just be us over-40s.



    i do have to go downtown sometime this weekend with my mom as my step-father is in the care facility on the old Wellesley Hospital site - and i've got 22 empties in a bag right here!

    woo hoo!

    Woohoo, 22 empties, a MAC addict after my heart. PM'd you back with my cell #. I say, let's get together anyway. we can always try again with the young'uns another time. Great excuse to go to MAC, as if I need an excuse.

    Let's go shopping

    Re: Toronto Get-Together?

    Bad news, with the suddent transit strike to-day in TO, our plan to meet is out. No, let's say it has been postponed. So save up your pennies, those in the GTA, we will get together later in the summer.

    Re: Toronto Get-Together?

    allie -thanks for posting about the post-ponement for me, since i didn't bring my laptop to mom's.

    here's hoping the TTC cooperates next time. i will be visiting my mom a few more times over the summer since she is suddenly living alone for the first time in her life and needs the company.

    knoxy, at least Ottawa has a free-standing store now. the darn thing opened 6 months AFTER i moved to London...

    Anyone from Toronto heading out to the MAC Wearhouse sale? I would be interested in meeting up, provided my tickets come through.

    Re: Toronto Get-Together?

    Hi everyone.

    I don't really post much on here - as to be honest, I only have ONE MAC thing, which happens to be the brush cleanser. Also, where I live in England doesn't have a MAC Counter or a Free Standing Store, so I'm a bit muffed.

    Anyway.

    I'm originally from Canada and I'll be moving back sometime this year, after 5yrs of being away. I don't have an exact date and or month yet, however my family and I are looking for the Sept OR Dec. time. I was born in Toronto however I have no idea of my way around it, and we may possibly be moving to the wonderful city.

    If anyone would like to meet up, I'd appreciate it. I'd love to have people show me 'round and do some makeup shopping. Let me know what yas think.

    Thanks. (:

    Hey all..

    I think we need to revitalize this thread! Torontonians are so fortunate to have an abundance of counters and free-standing stores to choose from...surely there are tons of MACaholics here!

    Which store/location in the GTA do you favour?
    Do you have a favourite MA?
    Who wants to get together for some shopping?!

    Seconded!

    I go to the Eaton Center a lot - my streetcar fortunately enough drops me off right in front since its so close to where I live. I've also been to the MAC counter in The Bay across from the Eaton Center, the PRO store at Queen/Peter, in the underground at Yonge/Bloor, and I've been in the one at Yorkdale a handful of times. I used to live in Scarb, so the one at STC is also a good one.

    I really like the MA's at the Pro store...they're so nice and very helpful. Its a small store in a tucked away location (not paying attention and you'll walk right by the entrance) and I find that this one is not particularly as busy as other stores - the Eaton Center location always seems so packed and even though the MA's are friendly and ask if you need help - its not as welcoming as the Pro store....which is totally justifyable since its in a mall.

    I have to go shopping again...I have a few containers that need some BACK2MAC'ing and a few extra eyeshadows in general...plus I need another pro eyeshadow pan for my depotting. I've been putting it off for over a month now...I have 6 shadows just sitting here begging to be put away lol.

    Would love to do a meet up! More of a Benefit/Sephora person, but I could see getting into the MAC, I do love dazzleglass. Just moved to the city so would love to meet fellow beauty-holics for shopping and/or lunch?
