I'm a sucker for vintage shops. There is something so comforting in knowing that my clothes have a past, with stories that allow me to connect with them. With this in mind, I have found some pretty impressive pieces for very little cost, which is always a good thing. Lucky for us, Montreal's list of vintage stores is enough to satisfy any shopaholic's needs.
Montreal is a very fashionable city and one of the things that stands out most is how many of us locals have our individual styles. With fast-fashion becoming a craze, there is something special about shopping second hand. Not only does it give you a chance to find unique pieces, but you're also doing something positive for the environment.
Instead of searching through the racks of H&M, why not try out one of these epic vintage shops, right here in Montreal? From designer second-hand goods to kickass retro t-shirts, these awesome locations have so much to offer both their clientele and our city.
Not only will I be sharing my favourite vintage spots in the city but we at MTL Blog want to make your life as easy as possible, so we even drew out a map to guide you through all of your shopping needs.
