Eco-hub Grassroots now offers a lot more than the granola-chic of yore. For example, check out the super-cute mitts and arm-warmers by local designer Susan Harris ($25-$40) — all made using recycled sweaters and T-shirts. There’s also plenty of home décor items, delicious organic soaps from Simply By Amanda, plus eco-sensitive linens, paper goods and inspiring books — ideal if one of your new year’s resolutions is to be greener in your everyday choice. FF’s top pick: Ecoholic by Adria Vasil. Shop online or preview products at www.grassrootsstore.com.
on at overkill
At Overkill’s Warehouse Sale, expect to find all kinds of sporty-cool casual wear from labels like Quicksilver, Hurley, Reef and Roxy — all slashed to move. Plenty of T-shirts going for $5 to $10 a piece, plus hoodies for $20 and half off summer merchandise (great for those heading off on a beach vacation).
Where: 2124 Queen St. E. at Lee Avenue (in the Beaches), 416-691-4165.
Footwear fanatics will happily score 25 per cent off any first pair of shoes or boots, plus an additional 40 per cent off the second (of same or lesser value) at Town Shoes — definitely worth buying in bulk or shopping with a fellow shoe tart or metrosexual.
Plenty of deals to be had on temptingly vampy bootines by JLo, Steve Madden boots, heels by BCBG Girls and more, although stock is vanishing — scamper there soon. Preview styles at www.townshoes.ca.

Boxing Day was lunatic at Urban Outfitters, a consistent source for funky wearables and retro-cool housewares, but many deals remain.
Check out the shoes, tops and dresses in the sale section (starting at $9.99).
