It is that time of year again... the best of the best in vintage pop-up one day only, Ottawa Vintage Clothing Sale! Get ready to hunt for good a deal on some of the best vintage wares from across Canada. The finest independent vintage retailers set up shop with everything including leather, fur, jewelry, hats, gloves, purses; you name it they got it. This is the place to find gorgeous pieces you will never find anywhere else. Just make sure you don't wait too long to make a decision on that perfect floor length skirt or long black leather gloves because the next shopper with a great eye is right behind you ready to snap it up.
Not in Ottawa this weekend to enjoy the vintage sale? Not to worry, there are many great vintage and consignment shops throughout the City. AMH Style on Richmond Road in Westboro is a consignment shop that carries brand names from Joe Fresh to Fendi. The stylish sisters that run this store have an eye for fashion and can help you whip together the perfect outfit for any occasion.
For the serious vintage shopper, Ragtime Vintage Clothing is the perfect stop. While this place might not be everyone's cup of tea it has a fantastic selection of everything from canes and cuff links, quilts and knickknacks, and fur to evening gowns. Floor to ceiling this place has a tone of inventory so you have to be patient and willing to dig. They have fantastic costume style finds including classic tuxes and vintage suits (think wide lapels and ruffled shirts). Inventory is updated regularly and with a keen eye high-end designer labels like Armani and Versace can be found.
