For almost a year now, the entire world has collectively faced a pandemic; no matter who/where you are, we have all been faced with challenges.
We are fortunate to have so many options available to ease the adjustments in our day to day normals; one of these options is online shopping!
While 99% of new clothing stores sell online, if you are an avid thrifter like me, it can be a little trickier. In addition, living in Canada sometimes means stores wont ship to you.. it’s okay, we are used to it 🙂
HOWEVER, I have done some digging for you, and here is a list of terrific vintage clothing shops that ALL ship to/within Canada – with links included!
This shop is #goals, for real.
Right from first glance, you get a sense of how carefully curated each item in this shop is; and the Prairie Bazaar instagram feed is just straight up dreamy.
A bonus is that this shop sources and sells a large range of sizes!
With funky vintage graphic tees galore, Newlife should definitely be on your list to check out the next time you are looking for something fun and unique!
I adore the fact that they also donate a portion of each sale to the Nature Conservancy of Canada; how cool is that?!
Thrifted is the newest shop to my faves, as I only just came across it a month or so ago (certainly not disappointed by that).
The clean, modern layout of the site makes browsing a breeze, which is helpful if you are a tad on the scattery brained side like me (haha).
With stunning vintage items from brands like Burberry, Versace, and Fendi, I would consider this to be the perfect shop if you are looking for high end vintage items!
This legend of a shop in Toronto has been around since the 80s, and sells a wide range of items (they even do wholesale).
Black Market has a very cool, eclectic range of items; I am absolutely determined to visit this shop in person one day!
I also appreciate their quirky, yet helpful blog posts!
Even with several brick and mortar shops in Vancouver BC, this community focused vintage enterprise has an amazing online shop!
Icing on the cake? They facilitate a compassionate work training program for at-risk individuals, as well as donate all profits to the PHS Community Services Society.
This beautiful Montreal based shop includes curated vintage clothing as well as items made by local artists. A really cool thing, is that they offer a flat shipping rate of $13 anywhere in Canada!
This well stocked shop is located in the UK, and ships to Canada (the best thing to do when ordering from overseas is place a large order in order to meet the free shipping amount; you could even order with a friend and split the cost!).
What I love about browsing the website is that you can filter items by decade (70’s please!).
Of course in addition to the above, everyone loves Etsy! Below I will list some of the shops I personally love visiting!
So I hope these give you some new options and groovy items to browse through. I definitely have to mention Poshmark also, as there are PLENTY of vintage treasures to be found within 🙂
