Twice a year the The Canadian Alliance of Film & Television Costume Arts & Design (CAFTCAD) hosts a clothing sale so that it’s members, and astute members of the public, can take advantage of movie and television production wardrobe offerings. After a movie or television series finishes production there is usually quite a bit of stuff left over, and this includes all the clothing that actors and background performers wore in their productions. This year the sale is Saturday, October 15th from 10 AM to 5 PM. It usually held in an empty sound stage, and this time around it is no different with a studio at 751 Eastern Avenue in Toronto being used as the location.
Kingpin himself (me!) will be there and I’m even parting with some of my favourite fabric treasures, so please feel free to stop by and say, ‘Hello,’ and perhaps select a new bow tie or pair of cuff links!
