Until I go drawing at the Eaton Centre, it just doesn't feel like Christmas! So I chose to do it on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
I parked myself on a bench in front of Aldo where a woman was giving the discount shoe pile a once-over.
Shoppers lined up for gift wrapping services under a giant sparkly reindeer.
A fellow in a trench coat paused by a glittering window display.
Garbage man empties the trash in front of the Swarovski booth.
I was getting a little hungry so I crossed the street to Bannock for a cup of venison chilli.
I also got a gingerbread man because it's not a proper meal without dessert. (Fact.)
A well-heeled woman eyes the sandwiches.
Man enjoys a moment of peace with a cappuccino.
The woman across from me was glued to her Blackberry. Wait... Blackberry? They still make those?
Back at the Eaton Centre, the Salvation Army camps out next to a wall of shoes.
"Where's the Apple Store?"
This girl was such a Bella. So Emo.
Always with the plumber's butt. Oh, teenagers!
This couple was the cutest! Eating from their tiny cups of Yogen Früz.
Big sister keeps an eye on her bro.
Happy kids and grumpy adults. Sooo grumpy!
Another Bella? Cheer up! Didn't anyone tell you it's the Holidays?
