The Best Consignment Stores in Toronto
The 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.

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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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.

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 »
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 »
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.
