We spent a few weeks in Toronto this year and could barely zip up our suitcases when it came time to come home. Here are a few of our can’t-miss favorites, where you can score your own treasures…
House of Vintage

Feels upscale, but with deals to be had. Don’t walk away without trying on the 70s sunnies or purusing their collection of bags and boots.

Just across the street from House of Vintage, this grungier side of Vintage requires some digging, but there are deals to be had!

A bit pricier than other stores in Kensington Market, expect to find a mix of new and vintage items here and an abundant selection of jackets.

In two words? Vintage Mecca. Our favorite vintage spot has two locations to house their massive inventory. Don’t worry, these dual locations are only steps away from each other.
Exile 22 Kensington Avenue, Toronto, ON M5T 2J7 (416) 596-0827
Exile 2 62 Kensington Avenue, Toronto, ON M5T 2K2 (416) 595-7199
P.S. Shoppers tip: if you only have time to hit one area, tell your cabbie to take you to Kensington Market.
