The Singing Lady Consignment Emporium
|If The Singing Lady Consignment Emporium gets any more popular owner Tammy may have to occupy yet another building to house all these great and wonderful items. In a short few years The Singing Lady has grown from a small store on Burnhamthorpe to a 13,000 square foot complex occupying two buildings along The Queensway. Pay them a visit in 2015 and see what the fuss is all about!
Centennial Park Skiing and Snowboard Centre
|The Centennial Park Skiing and Snowboard Centre is not Whistler and no one is claiming that it is. But the fact that it is minutes away for anyone who lives in Etobicoke and with a decent ski and snowboard hill there is good reason why it is so popular.
