        I've been to 3 different dollarama stores in the GTA and not one has these cloths...considering most of our guests wear normal glasses and everyone wears sunglasses, these are awesome...just wish I could find them....

        prescription eyeglasses

        scopes and binoculars

        anti-reflective Zeiss ET coatings

        sun and sport lenses

        computer screens

        safety and sport goggles

        camera lenses

         

        They had them hanging in the area where the luggage tags and camera bags are sold.

          I was recently at the big Dollar store on Douglas St in Victoria and picked up $1 crossword and sudoku books, plus I noticed they also had the $1 first aid kits and some other great stuff in the pharmacy aisle.

          I'm currently looking for Spanish for Dummies, playing cards, bubble bath or bath salts, and individual packets of alka-slezer immodium or pepto. If anyone has any ideas on where to get this stuff I'd be greatly appreciative.

          Also, I have yet to buy my actual bags...I've been looking on some American based websites and found some great tote bags, but with the exchange rate, etc the cost is slowly creeping up and I was hoping to spend only around $5 per bag.

          Thanks in advance and I look forward to sharing!

              Hi everyone,

               

              I don't know if this has been mentioned yet (since I just came across this thread) but imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon a Dollar Tree...at Weston Road & 401 in Toronto! Sorry if I'm late on this, but I've been hearing U.S. brides carry on about how great DT is and all their great finds...I for one am very excited to actually go into the store and see what they have to offer...

                  Ohhhh...sorry...I haven't been back since I bought these, so I'm not sure what their status is here.  All I know is I've never seen them before, so maybe they have yet to put them out there?!?

                    I went into the Newmarket Dollar Tree the other day and my review is mixed. Although did carry a lot of items similar to the US stores, they didn't have a lot of the items I had purchased for my OOTs there. Their candy section also wasn't that great. Mind you, they JUST opened so I'm sure will be getting more stock in gradually. One good find was that they had the battery operated candles....not the votives the actual candles like they sell at Michael's for like $8 each. Unfortunately I didn't need them but other brides might be interested. I think they are part of the Christmas stock just arriving.

                      Ooooh...battery operated candles? Very exciting! I've been toying with the idea of adding them to my OOT bags since Carnival doesn't allow standard candles. Thanks Camy47
