hahaha

BTW I didn't take these photo's so I have no idea where they were taken.

Does anyone know the name or location of that second hand shop in yorkville that sells a lot of second hand brand names? I'm dyeing to check it out since someone mentioned it but have no idea where it is...

The paper bag princess sells second hand designer stuff? I always pass by that place but is it really in Yorkville - I remember it being located elsewhere downtown?

try kitsch boutique in forest hill village, at spadina and lonsdale... pretty much all they sell is dresses and they've got lots of different styles, plus some vintage in the basement

i'm way tired of aritzia... but i've been living in new york for a while and haven't had a chance to explore toronto since i've been back. any store recommendations? the truth is that i like aritzia... minus the juicy, the uggs, tna, etc. any stores that you love that are unique to toronto?

is queen street really that "hip"..and yorkville?

im quite terrified walking on queen...most of the people dress scene..which is quite a bored now
and yorkville is a turn off now..i only go to bloor now for holt..and because i use to work at a bridal shop near the area

does any one go beyond downtown?..maybe uptown for a change?
i love pacific mall..the clothes there do have some character and sass

i do recommand people coming uptown for a change
i shake my head at dt stores

Wow, I can't believe no one has mentioned Kensington Market!! I absolutely love Kensington - there are amazing vintage shops, some re-worked, a little new and asian imports - and you can find tons of interesting local designer wares!

On my last visit, I bought a chain link belt ($5) from Flashback (was eyeing the sombreros, but they were too big!) - a canvas mailbag from a little rasta shop, and a really cool inexpensive local designer shirt from The Rage.
