Canadian version of OTC?

Recommended Posts

So, I just posted in the Oriental Trading Company thread about shipping times from Canada, but upon calling them and asking about ship times, then almost placing an order, I realized it wasn't the shipping TIME that was the problem, but the the shipping COST.

 

For me to get my items in 2 weeks (or longer) I have to pay $45 in shipping alone!!! And that doesn't count the exchange rate on the actual order ... for 3 items (dozen of each) it cost me $70 CDN!! That's a bit steep for what I ordered ... (sticky notes, pens and fans)

 

So, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a Canadian equivalent to OTC? Or a store that carries the raffia fans in Ontario/Quebec? At this point I'm willing to drive into Ontario to get the items if any of you Ont girls know

 

Thanks ladies!

Hmmmm good question!! I too would love a Canadian version of OTC!

I ordered the silk fans from Beau-coup and I love them, they also arrived very quickly, but I can't for the life of me remember what I paid for shipping smile35.gif but check out Beau-coup Fans at Beau-coup Favors I'm placing a fan on each seat for the ceremony, I'm sure my guests will appreciate then while they are sitting there in the heat! I'm gonna keep one for myself... I'm sure I'll need a fan that day!!

It's so close now!!! And thanks for the suggestion ... I think we're at the point now where we can't order anything online. Anything and everything we need now has to be bought in a store ... which means fans, centerpiece stuff, OOT bag contents, etc. *sigh* Sometimes I wonder how I got so disorganized!! LOL

LOL! Too funny! YAY May 12!! Hey are we time twins too?? My ceremony is at 4pm...

 

Well found quite a few more OOT fillers at Dollarama (not sure if you have one in Montreal?) as well as Michael's, in the dolalr aisle. The best things that I bought was from those two stores. Good luck! smile03.gif

OMG we are totally date AND time twins!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As far as I know, my ceremony is at 4 p.m. but that might change ... depending on the tide. The beach is very small and if the water is too high, we're all going to get a little wet. Hehehe

We do have Dollarama stores here .... and that's an awesome idea! We're going to have to check them out ... we were thinking Wal-Mart too... and even Zellers. We want to get snacks as well, but we're going to wait till a little closer to the leaving date to bring food home ... or it won't make it to the OOT bags. LOL

And I'm so glad my blondeness amuses you all ... smile72.gif I know, I'm smooooth .... LOL

I would totally second Dollarama. I bought a BUNCH of stuff there for OOT bags and the quality just looks better than other dollar stores out there

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
