September 2004 issue: Buyers' guide


Every month in Chatelaine, we feature great products available in Canada – everything from daytime dresses to drawer pulls to dishes. To help you track down these items, we’re now posting a buyers’ guide. We base our list of stores on information available to us at the time of publication, then update it as needed.

Can’t find the item that strikes your fancy? Please write to us at Chatelaine Where-to-Buy, One Mount Pleasant Road, 8th Floor, Toronto, ON M4Y 2Y5.

Identify the month of the issue, the page number and item you are interested in. We’ll do our best to track it down and share the information here and in our Buyers’ guides section.
