Hazards of the Trade , a boutique owner’s intimate reveal of the 1980s and 90s lingerie boom, by Phyllis L Humby

St. Marys, Ontario, Canada (April 22, 2020)

Summary

Hazards of the Trade is a personal disclosure of nearly twenty years of humorous and sadreflections from the naïve start-up of a small-town lingerie boutique to the ultimate farewell.

Review

The era began with retailers in impossibly high heels and designer suits attending the OntarioFashion Exhibitors market at the prestigious King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto andended with buyers in rubber-soled shoes and sweatpants at the Congress Centre near theairport. While high-end fashion shows and buying trips might seem glamorous, evading astalker and trying to evict a rabid squirrel from the shop might not. But it was all part of being inthe Trade. That, and so much more.
