Sub Rosa Vintage in Toronto

Sub Rosa Vintage

Sub Rosa has a pretty large selection of amazing vintage pieces, and it’s so hard to resist trying on everything they have in-store.

Their store is very curated with a lot of great selections, which I love!

Be sure to check out every single rack because they have so many incredible vintage finds.

It’s a super tiny little shop, but they’ve got a lot of cute things!

Be sure to dig through the racks to get a peek at everything so you don’t miss any good stuff.

Courage My Love

Courage My Love is the oldest vintage store in Kensington Market.

They have tons of unique clothing and accessories, with a lot of retro stuff if that’s what you’re into!

They also have an incredible selection of vintage cowboy/western boots, as you can see in the photo above.

If you’re looking for Halloween costumes, definitely come by here in October to take a look.

Hi Vintage in Toronto

Hi Vintage

My friends and I stumbled across Hi during the Toronto Vintage Crawl, and we were pleasantly surprised.

They don’t have a huge selection of stuff, but it’s very curated.

They had both American Apparel disco shorts and pants – the holy essentials of Lookbook fashion bloggers back in the day.

LOCATION: 4 Kensington Ave, Toronto, ON


Vintage Depot in Toronto

Vintage Depot

Vintage Depot has a few locations around the GTA, but I’ve only been to the Kensington Market one.

From outside it doesn’t look like much, but you’ll find tons of awesome pieces here, and it’s all colour-coordinated.

I found an Aritzia dress I already own for a fraction of the price!

I’ve found that the best way to go about shopping here is heading to a colour you like and sifting through any pieces that catch your eye.
