Montreal Vintage Shopping

Fur Collar $20 - Friperie St-Laurent
Ralph Lauren Blazer $65- Friperie St-Laurent
Chanel Satin Scarf $20 - Friperie St-Laurent

A few weeks ago I went vintage shopping along Saint-Laurent Street with my friend, Jess. With a little bit of research and some recommendations from friends we set off for some great finds. We started at the bottom of Saint-Laurent at "Eva B" (2013 St-Laurent). Eva.B had a vast selection, but ironically this was the store's down fall. There was just TOO much to go through. The clothes were piled on racks and even into what is called "the one dollar pit" - a five foot deep, mounding pool of clothing. Let's just say it was too much to bare. Overwhelmed, we left with no purchases. We continued up St-Laurent stopping at each store that caught our eyes and Jess made a couple great, small purchases. Our final stop, and most desired destination was "Friperie St-Laurent" (3976 St-Laurent). AMAZING does not even define this store. I could have stayed for hours, but unfortunately the store was fifteen minutes short of closing when we arrived. The sales associate-a friendly, middle aged man was very helpful and personable and informed us that all clothing was 25% off! I highly recommend that you should all shop at this vintage store ; it's officially my favorite!
