    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 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!!

            LOL I think my ticker is in a weird timezone ... I mustn't have set it up right or something when I did it ... probably put I was from Cape Town in Africa or something ...

                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!

                  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 ... 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
