    Taking advantage of US/Canadian exchange rate

    Like many of us, I've enjoyed taking advantage of the tremendous buying power of the U.S. dollar when buying from Spier and Mackay. It got me thinking: are there any other Canadian based retailers anyone is using for a similar bonus?

    Viberg boots from Canadian stockists like Lost & Found, Blue Button Shop, and Brooklyn Clothing Company. The time to get in on them was January and February though.

    Man. The days when the US/CDN dollar was at par was great. I don't think I'd ever bought so much clothes & shoes in my life. Silly of me, I thought the at par would last. Now I'm kicking myself for not having picked up more at the time.
