The Best Consignment Stores in Toronto

Posted by Natalia Manzocco / December 31, 2014

consignment stores torontoThe best consignment stores in Toronto are the solution to your wardrobe woes - whether your problem is having too much or too little. If you're hunting for a spectacular deal (and, really, who isn't), you can take your pick from a selection of secondhand wares that's both well-chosen and well-priced; if you've got some of yesteryear's fashion finds to get rid off, they just might take them off your hands. Whatever side you're on that day, there are plenty of places that blur the line between one man's junk and another man's treasure.

Here are the best consignment stores in Toronto.

VSP

VSP

A relative newcomer on the Toronto consignment scene, this Dundas West shop shot straight to the top for their focus on a mix of vintage, upscale lines (Helmut Lang and Pink Tartan pieces abound) and the odd hit of very well-designed fast-fashion. Most prices hover at just a third of the original retail price tag. More »

The Cat's Meow

The Cat's Meow

This Avenue Rd. shop has been a favourite for nearly a decade. Feminine pieces from the '50s to the '70s dominate, but modern pieces still find their way in. Deal-hunting pro tip - after 60 days, pieces get marked down dramatically and moved to the back of the shop. More »

Fashionably Yours

Fashionably Yours

Into the kind of brands that get name-checked in rap lyrics and/or Sex And The City episodes? Fashionably Yours on Queen West keeps a healthy selection of Prada, Vuitton and Chanel in stock, with particularly robust bag and shoe sections. They generally stick to 40-60% off retail, with a few exceptions - say, a pair of Gucci studded loafers that recently turned up for under $100. More »

Off The Cuff

Off The Cuff

Sharp-dressed men in search of a bargain will no longer be relegated to one corner of the consignment shop. Located just off Yonge and Eglinton is Off The Cuff, a repository of gently-used designer menswear. They cater to all styles - among the Tom Ford peacoats (!) and luxurious leather weekenders, you'll find McQueen and Givenchy tees and rare Nikes. More »

HazelLily

HazelLily

Yonge and Lawrence's HazelLily appeals to uptown shoppers living on a less than young-and-eligible budget. The name of the game here is elegant, practical style, suited perfectly to moms, working women, and others who want to look glamorous while stretching a buck. Favourite labels include Gucci, Chanel, Miu Miu and Marc by Marc Jacobs. More »

Coco's Closet

Coco's Closet

Located in Bloor West Village, Coco's is for the career-oriented woman who knows what she likes - and isn't overly label-conscious. Though the shop is populated with Louboutin pumps and Prada bags, you'll also find workwear items from the likes of Banana Republic, as well as more boutique lines like Vince, Acne and Line Knitwear. More »

Haute Classics

Haute Classics

Two years old or under - that's the rule for Yonge and St. Clair's Haute Classics. No matter what you're looking for - be it designer jeans, silk Equipment tops, or one of their scads and scads of used designer handbags - you know it'll still be on-trend. More »

Consign Toronto

Consign Toronto

West Queen West's Consign Toronto is a hodgepodge of labels and styles. Fortunately, that also extends to price point - if you're not in the market for a $650 Valentino bag or a $140 Burberry cuff, you could snag some Michael Kors or J. Brand for a big chunk off the retail price. More »

Scout Consignment

Scout Consignment

Newcomer Scout spreads the designer consignment love out to Etobicoke. There's plenty of glitz and logos to be found in this little shop - Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Michael Kors are common sights - but the eagle-eyed will be able to spy more under-the-radar lines like Rebecca Minkoff and Zac Posen.

Sad how men's items don't "move" at consignment stores. I'm trying to get rid of my very nice items (Prada, LV, etc.) and stores either won't take them or will offer very little for like new condition items.

You're probably better off selling online, preferably on a site that caters to men's clothing, such as Style Forum or Super Future, or Grailed. At least those places have people actively in search of the clothes you hope to sell.

Love That Closet is also worth checking out (and really should have been on this list), though it's completely online they have a great range of designer consignment items that are almost always new with tags or only worn once/twice. Another great thing about Love That Closet is that they give back! The company is different in that it's a designer consignment shop with a charitable twist. Sellers are required to give a minimum of 5 percent of their proceeds to the charity of their choice and Love That Closet administers the donations for the sellers. So, not only will you look good, but you can also feel good knowing that a portion of your sale and/or purchase are helping make a difference

There's a new contender for this list in Summerhill! Check out Clementine's on Yonge Street- beautifully curated.

The game is presented in a wider side ratio than normal widescreen televisions, putting black bars on the prime and bottom of the screen. The game's marketing campaign is spread throughout 15 chapters, each taking about an hour to finish, and beating the game unlocks a New Game Plus mode, permitting you to replay the game with your entire upgrades in addition to new weapons.

Love this list. It's hard to find authentic consignment items these days. I'd add DesignerSwap.ca on this list.

Hi Natalia, With a title like "The Best Consignment Stores In Toronto", I invite you to consider other types of consignment in followup articles than just clothing and accessories. Stores like Transition Squad, Around The Block, Singing Lady, Of Things Past and Elle and Eve all offer great furniture and other household items. Our store, Transition Squad, also offers clothing, shoes, accessories, jewellery, china as well as exercise equipment as part of our mix. Ours is a Consignment+Thrift combination. Items that are on donation are sold and proceeds go to our Charity Of The Month.

LAB Consignment used to be on this list, why no longer? They moved all online to labconsignment.com and have this cozy private studio now. Better than a regular retail experience IMO.
