Reflections Vintage and Antiques

Posted by Talia Hart / Posted on October 14, 2012

Reflections Vintage AntiquesReflections Vintage and Antiques transforms into a halloweener's haven just after the September long weekend. After replacing last season's bridal wear with this season's witches and clowns, (expect to see Christmas apparel next) Reflections wins for the most organized seasonal thrift shop I have yet to visit. I was fooled by the cluttered racks upon racks of inventory when I first entered the store. Let's call it an organized mess, shall we?

Reflections Vintages AntiquesAs I make small talk with the storekeepers, they tell me they try to offer customers everything they'd need to put together a costume head-to-toe, whether it's piecing a variety of accessories together, or buying a packaged set. For every genre of costume, they offer an extensive collection of vintage and packaged. I saw five styles of The Wizard of Oz' classical Dorothy dress (new and old), and even more options for housewife costumes (classic fifties aprons and muumuu housedresses).

Reflections Vintages AntiquesThey even have a handful of exotic options should you decide to dress up like a Harem or Sheikh. I get the impression they want customers to feel like they can look like an Arabian belly dancer without opting for the Jasmine costume (though they do sell those too).

Reflections Vintages AntiquesIn a word, the costumes here are authentic. I didn't see anything that reeked of store-bought "hot hurse." Their focus is on longer cut, traditional style costumes that range from the classics to the not-so-classics. I saw everything from my Disney favourites, to overdone angels/devils, to more unique ensembles such as geisha dresses, renaissance costumes, and steampunk get-ups.

Reflections Vintages AntiquesWhile most of the guy's costumes seem to be uniforms of some sort, I was impressed to find their guy's firefighter's costume to be an actual vintage piece they retrieved through a charity. In terms of price range, they won't sell anything over $100, with most of their vintage stuff selling at around $40. I appreciate their desire to please all demos. For instance, for their masquerade mask collection they offer both paper macheed and metal plated options.

Does this store have costume apparel year round, or just around October? I was hoping to pay it a visit this week (February), but I don't want to waste time if there are no costumes

Thanks!

Hello,

I am looking for a top hat for my son for his graduation, but I am not close enough to go into Toronto. Do you ever do mail or phone orders and ship to the customer? What is the average price of your top hats?

Thank you.

What are your operating hours and do you have a pair of tall size 11 mens black boots that would be suitable for a steampunk costume?

We are Moving!!

When one door closes another one opens.

We want to thank all our customer for their support.

We' have been in the unknown for a few months since our lease was ending and our landlord raised our rent. We have made the decision not renew our lease at our Yonge street location. We believe we offer quality products at reasonable prices and we did not want this to change.

What does this mean for Reflections?

We are now closed at our Yonge street location.

We are moving!!! Opening March 2015 date to be posted soon.

Our new location is 839 Gerrard Street East
between Logan Street and Carlaw Street

In the interim, we will be holding a winter season pre-opening sale, this Saturday March 7th 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. All of our customers will have the opportunity to peruse through our extensive inventory of Leather Wear (jackets, pants, coats), Faux Fur Coats, Fur Coats and Cashmere Coats. These particular items will be on clearance at 30% off. We look forward to meeting new customers and seeing existing ones again.
