Default Retailer in Thornhill, Ontario, Canada area

Hi All

Not sure if this is the right part of the forum to post this, I was feeling bored so I decided to browse Kijiji (similar to Craigslist) and I came across a store located the Thornhill area that is located at the World on Yonge complex.

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-art-collectib...ationFlag=true

Has anyone ever heard of this place or perhaps, is the owner a member of this forum?

I emailed the address provided and he mentioned that he would try to provide me with an updated list of what he has for sale. He responded pretty quickly to my inquiry. Ill give an update if a list is provided.

Of course if someone makes it out to the store before then lemme know

I received a reply back from the seller regarding one of the models he is selling.

The Phoenix 1:200 Air Canada 788, with the fake registration.

I did visit the store this weekend and it was an interesting time. First the building is actually a block east of Yonge but the address is indeed yonge street. The store is located on the 2nd floor of the building and is all of 275 square feet [think really small]. They carry both cars and planes. Prices are good, I bought 2 Gemini’s both for less than the DIMA suggested price.
There doesn’t appear to be a website yet but the email is [email protected]. Would I go back – definitely. My suggestion is if you are after a particular model, call first because the trip from Aviationworld on Saturday around 1 was a pain traffic wise. Fyi best 1/200 model selection I have seen at AW in a long time. Picked up a Canjet 737-800 [plastic, 1/200] for $30.

Was the Canjet plastic a consignment item?

What forms of payment does he accept? Im curious if he ships (to Ottawa specifically) out. He sent me a list of what he has available in 1:400 and 1:200, definitely some items id like to have a look at!
