Here are the best vintage clothing stores in Toronto.
This Queen West vintage staple no longer sits in a basement but it’s still grungy as ever. Black Market has moved its racks of graphic tees, plaid flannels and other punk rock necessities—all for a typical flat price of $10 per item—to where Active Surplus used to be across the street. Shop their pricier finds online.
For over 40 years the Scriver family has been packing this mystical blue house in Kensington Market with Indonesian buttons, endless cupboards of beads from Mexico and vintage clothing galore. Some main draws: their $5 rack out front, cupboards from scrounging and vintage cashmere sweaters, some tie-dyed inhouse.
Black Market’s sprawling sister store in Parkdale carries an eclectic curation of men’s and women’s looks. Public Butter’s buyers are always on the hunt for high-end clothes, so expect premium vintage fits rather than an abundance of cheap tees. Expect tons of cool outerwear and button up silks from the 80s and 90s.
The selection at this woodsly Parkdale spot is a curated stock of one-of-a-kind menswear and womenswear from the 20s to 80s. A quick rummage will get you some awesome faux-fur jackets, 70s windbreakers. fitted dresses, and a lot of lovely jewellery if you're about that brooch life.
If you're into vintage designer womenswear, this Ossington shop will blow your mind. The space is teeming with consignment treasures, including well-preserved Chanel handbags, Cartier jewellery and Yves Saint Laurent evening dresses. Plus, I Miss You MAN is just next door, for any designer menswear devotees.
