i don't go there. like i said, i hate it!
once i get past the fabric district though, i like two stores.
"Cabaret" for very good quality vintage dresses...just to look at.
and ".69 Vintage", which is quite emo and pretentious, but i got the most amzing pair of boots there, so i visit it sometimes.

^kensington market is definitely the hot spot for vintage clothes..
but you know...the thing with vintage is that most of it is old crap you're never going to wear anyway...kensington has a lot of that.

there are a few pieces along the road that, with a litle TLC, can be amazing...i've never seen any good quality vintage clothing in TO.

Good to know that there aren't any good vintage stores in TO. therefore I can stop searching.....
BTW where exactly is Kensington market? My friend told me that I have been near there for sure, but I just did not notice, where exactly is that?

Actually Toronto has awesome vintage stores however it takes alot of research. One cool vintage store which even Mischa Barton has shopped before is Dennis' House Of Vintage, located on Queen Street.

From Spadina, you take the streetcar and get off at College. From there, you walk a block or so (I couldn't tell you which direction, I get lost easily)!

Celebration on Yorkville *did* sell them. If I remember correctly, they were clearing out their inventory earlier this summer. But this is where I've bought all my London Soles, they had quite a good selection so I'd recommend checking it out. It's across the street from Over The Rainbow-ish (give or take a few stores)
