Queen St. vintage landmark going strong 34 years later

This massive vintage store has been floating around the intersection of Queen and John in one form or another since 1980, but its latest incarnation - a huge basement stuffed to the low ceiling with inexpensive vintage and new cheap thrills - has become a landmark of sorts, anchoring the corner in a way that only the CHUM building can rival.

Just as it did in the early '80s, the store is a magnet for young Torontonians with a penchant for artsy, alternative fashion - but anyone with $10 to spare and an afternoon to kill can find a piece worth bragging about.
