How can I get a Cabbagetown flag to NYC?
March 21, 2014 11:01 AM   Subscribe

My wife adores cabbages, and we both love Toronto and Cabbagetown. Last time we were there we didn't get a chance to grab a Cabbagetown flag, but we've always wanted one. I've been calling the Cabbagetown BIA at the phone number at this blog post, but they have not yet responded to my voicemails or emails. The latter link says you can pick them up at 237 Carlton Street. But I'm in NYC, not Toronto, and cannot get back to Canada anytime soon. How can I get one and have it shipped home? I'm more than happy to pay for it, the shipping, the customs, whatever.

How big is the flag?

Hate to thread-sit, but I don't know how big it would be. The blog post (the 2nd link in my question) says they "come in two sizes" but do not say what they are. I'd suspect one to be "standard" flag size, perhaps 2ft tall by 3.5ft wide? The other one, who knows?

I'd make a Craigslist post in the Toronto section asking for someone to do this.

It looks like they're open M, W, F until 3pm. I work a couple of blocks away. I'm happy to go in and find out more for you on Monday (today is moving day at the office). I'm not offering yet to post it for you as things are pretty hectic right now but if it's straightforward I'm happy to do it.

on preview: or what Jairus said.

I take the streetcar past there twice a day. Send me a message and I'll try to get one for you.

I live near Cabbagetown, if krunk can't just shoot me a MeMail and we'll work out the details.
