Roots Leather Factory Tour

Today myself along with other bloggers had the opportunity to get a tour of the Roots Leather Factory located at 1162 Caledonia Road in Toronto.

I had been looking forward to the tour for the past week. I am proud to say that I have a few Roots bags that I have owned for about 7 years. The bags are still in great condition. Another plus is that they are Made in Canada.

The following are some pictures that I took on the tour. The bags are for the new Spring collection. We received a personal tour of the leather factory from Karl Kowalewski, Director of Leather and Product Development.

It was interesting to see the mix of old and new technology used to make the bags. I have noticed that the quality of leather used in making a Roots bag is very different to any other leather bag that I own. They are a great investment.

I really enjoyed the tour and realized  that I need to do some shopping. I have a feeling that I will be getting the Roots Kristina bag very soon.

I would like to thank Laura for inviting me to the event and everyone else involved.

Marshalls in Canada

I am wondering if there is any difference between Marshalls and Winners as they both sell brand name items for less.

This past February a lucky winner received a $1000 shopping spree in New York City.  What I can see from the video is that the store layout is similar to Winners.

Store Locations:

LEASIDE 23 Brentcliffe Road Toronto, ON M4G 4B7

WARDEN & EGLINTON 808 Warden Avenue Toronto, ON M1L 4T7

COLOSSUS POWER CENTRE 7601 Weston Road Woodbridge, ON L4L 9J9

Baglicious on Tumblr

Image representing Tumblr as depicted in Crunc...Image via CrunchBase
I decided one day to setup an account on Tumblr. I was not sure what I would post on the site. I decided that I would post pictures of bags and anything else that I find interesting.

Sometimes I have ideas for a post and then I forget about it. Now that I have my new iPhone I can easily post pictures on the go.

The site is called le sac de dame. It translates to bag lady.

    Looking For A Yoga Bag

    I think that if I had a practical yoga bag, then I would go to more classes. The bag that I currently have is quite difficult to carry on public transportation. It takes up too much room. I would like to have a bag that I can carry on my back. I have to carry this bag on my shoulder or carry in my hands.

    The problem that I am having is finding a bag that can hold my clothes and a yoga towel. This was once the perfect yoga bag.
