Ragtime Vintage (men and women)
43 Flora St.
Mon-Thurs & Sat 11am-6pm
If you’re a thrift lover then you (literally) cannot miss this shop – the building itself radiates the brightness of fuchsia pink paint in an otherwise dreary side street off of Bank. This place is literally chalk full, from floor to ceiling, with racks and piles of unique vintage finds. You’ll definitely have a blast sorting through all of the timeworn one-of-a-kind pieces. And we guarantee no one else is going to be sporting the exact same find. Whether you’re looking for leather, lace, or luxury you won’t leave empty handed. If it’s your lucky day, you might even be able to hunt down a vintage Canadian Arctic Inuvik Inuit Fox Fur Hooded Wool Parka. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time to dig through the amazingness – and don’t get lost in there!
Tallow (women only)
1116 Wellington St. W
Although this store has much more of a beachy, boho vibe, they’ve also got your back when it comes to gorgeous winter jackets. A popular find is the Canadian designer brand Mackage, having created accessible options including wool coats, down coats, and trenches. They pride themselves on being the most prestigious contemporary outerwear brand in the world, with a unique balance between fashion and function. Oh and they make you look like royalty – Meghan Markle has also been seen in these jackets!
