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

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
