    I live in Toronto and was wondering if anyone had any luck finding these in Kensington market downtown?

      I haven't started to look because it has been so cold lately, but I'm planning to try Chinatown too.

        Yeah hopefully they have a selection there otherwise I will have to order them and get dinged with the duty and shipping. I too am waiting until it warms up a little. I will post if I find anything.

          Weddingfavours.ca has them if you can't find them in the city. A bit pricey maybe, but they are based in Canada so at least the shipping costs are under control and there is no duty.

              weddingfavours.ca is a great site! I bought 4 parasols and 36 bamboo hand fans and my order was 97$ including shipping. Way cheaper than buying from the states. They also have paper lanterns but they don't come with a light kit.

                WOW! Glad I found this thread. I just ordered 3 parasols from weddingfavours.ca. Cost $40 including shipping to Calgary. I called them because I leave on Jan 26, (2 weeks) and she assured me that with the cheapest shipping option it would get here in lots of time. Thanks for this thread.
                I did buy a parasol from Chinatown. It was great, but all they had was white or white with badly painted designs. I checked out about 10 different stores. I was looking for some colours. I think the one I got in chinatown was $15. So it was actually cheaper to order the ones in the colours I liked from the website!
                YAY! Thanks ladies!

                  I got my parasols from weddingfavours.ca and they were great! The store is actually located in my stupid little town, around the corner from my house. Didn't even have to pay for shipping, just picked 'em up at the store!

                    Despite the super high shipping cost from Asian Ideas (i.e. like 40 something dollars for 12 parasols)--which came to around 120 dollars CAD, + $7 duty, I was quite impressed with them. I ordered them, and they came 2 or 3 days later!! The quality of the parasols are pretty good from what I can tell. Was still way cheaper than Pamela's parasols which I was also considering.

                      I ordered my 4 parasols and 36 hand fans on 01/11 ($93 canadian incl. shipping) and they arrived today. They are so GORGEOUS!! The hand fans are a little smaller than I thought they would be but so cute when I wrapped the ribbon around the handle!
