New Place to Buy Skates! Hot Diggity!

This weekend, Toronto, Ontario will be getting its own brick and mortar skate shop!! Sooo effing exciting.
Normally when i want new stuff i have to get it online, normally from Sin City Skates, Roller girl or Rollerbug..  Whom I love all of those girls! Fast shipping, great customer service!  Otherwise I can pick up stuff at different events, normally when im out of the country and I always have to ask myself, do I buy wheels or buy margaritas, margaritas usually win out! HA HA

 But this weekend Cardinal Skate Co. is opening!  This means that when im in Toronto, seeing TORD games and GTAR games, or eating thai food and watching 24 with Joker I can hit the skate shop, smell the wheels, touch the bearings and try on skates!

Cardinal is a subsidiary of Common Ground Shop/RollerBug Skate Co, so it is run by the same people that bring you Roller Bug skates.   I got my second pair of skates, my first pair of roller derby skates, from Rollerbug.  They have stood up really well since i bought them three or more years ago!  Plus they look pretty baddass!!! My skates have gotten more media attention then my face has! HA HA

I had a couple of teammates find these wheels from Queen of the Rink and they couldn't find them in Canada. I contacted  Kandy Barr and she was able to order them in and the girls can go down and pick them up. Word on the street is they are also going to have ATOM wheels there!! ooooo i so wanna try those wheels.

So even though i am poor as eff, i do have a brand new credit card that will hopefully get me some wheels, new pads, and maybe skates, even though i looooves my old ones.  

So if your in Toronto for the weekend or maybe you signed up for the latest TORD Fan Choice Scrimmage, make sure you stop in and talk derby with Kandy Barr at Cardinal!  

See you there!
