LOOKBOOK

We found five amazing B.C. shops that specialize in previously loved designer fashion and true vintage consignment.

VINTAGE & CONSIGNMENT

A LA MODE CONSIGNMENT

THE PATCH CLOTHING

Our favourite spot in Victoria for designer and high-end fashion consignment, along with a large shoe inventory, and located in the heart of Oak Bay Village.

Offering up a huge selection of premium recycled and vintage clothing, and located in the heart of downtown Victoria, we love their sidewalk racks with stock that seems to change daily!

1507 Wilmot Pl., Victoria alamode2009.com

719 Yates St., Victoria 250-384-7070 www.thepatchclothing.com

Fashion lovers in Victoria have long understood that fabulous doesn’t have to mean new. In fact, our two picks (one vintage & one designer) serve up the best consignment the island has to offer.
