As many of you know by now, I LOVE to shop. I will also shop anywhere. Obviously, this (of course) also includes online shopping. Seriously, I don’t even remember how I wasted time at work/school before online shopping existed in the world. What’s even better to me, is if I can shop local online, which is why I love Shopcastr.com.
This Toronto-based website allows online shoppers to browse through and discover new shops (and neighbourhoods!) and their unique goods that can be purchased in-store or online.
For example, last Friday I was doing a little “window shopping” (via my computer), when I came across these amazing totem pole salt n pepper shakers from Russet & Empire. As they are based in the very west “Junction” of the city, and I am based east, the chances of me ever getting there to go shopping in person are pretty slim. But thanks to Shopcastr, these babies landed at my door by Monday morning.
I mean, seriously, how amazing are these!?
