Shopping the Warehouse

Industry Customers (shop owners, resellers, costume designers, textile designers, etc...):We are back open Monday-Friday to Industry Buyers, from 11am to 6pm, with a $100 minimum purchase.
No appointment is needed but there is a $100 minimum. You will be asked to provide proof that you are shopping as a business entity by providing any of the following: business website, business card, Ebay/Etsy/Depop shop name, Instagram shop name, corporate credit card, etc...
Saturday appointments available with a $2000 minimum.

An Industry or Wholesale Buyer is someone who resells, or utilizes vintage clothing, in their business.
We have a form you'll fill out during your visit, and you will be asked to provide proof of the commercial use- such as your website, Instagram selling page, business card, Ebay/Depop/Grailed account, etc... Just having a tax ID is not enough (you could be a plumber with a tax ID). We need verification that you are not just trying to get in to shop for yourself by pretending to run a business.

This is an industrial warehouse; not a store. Our main focus is offering large quantities of vintage to Industry Customers, so the clothing is sorted by material, era, or style, into large boxes, and you dig through the boxes that are of interest.

Some products are separated by era; other items are graded by various factors, for example men's button-up shirts are separated by style (solid colour, plaid, striped, patterned), or Era (1970's) or design (Hawaiian).

Industry Customers have access to our Special Collection (Victorian through high-end 1970s and 80s), and increased quantity of your favorite items in our backstock area.

The clothing is not washed, and it can be dusty in here. If you are very dust/allergen sensitive, this environment may get you sneezing. You may find an item you like but it has a stain or some damage; so be prepared to wash or repair. We don't discount just because something is missing a button and we don't haggle. Our price list is available at the top of this page- please take a look to familiarize yourself with our pricing before you come in.

We don't have dressing rooms, but we do have mirrors. We do have heat in the winter, but in any weather extreme you will feel it. So bring water in the summer, and wear layers in the winter.

We do not allow children under 10 (for insurance reasons).

Please bring your own bag! We charge for single-use plastic bags and will be phasing them out entirely in 2020!

Private Appointments

Private appointments during the week are not needed- industry/wholesaler buyers are welcome between 11am-6pm. There is a $100 minimum.
We do offer appointments on Saturdays with a $2000 minimum.

Pricing Information

When you are shopping the warehouse, you are cherry-picking, so you are buying *by the piece*. There are bulk discounts for many items when you purchase a quantity (usually at least 10) of the same thing.
Our Price List is available as a PDF by clicking here. It reflects how we sort the clothing, and will give you an idea of the prices to expect.
We know the list is out of date (working on that), but its about 90% accurate. Prices for denim has gone up. Prices are subject to change without notice.

By the pound purchasing is only available for online orders.

Warehouse Rules

A few rules:

  • No children under 10 allowed.

  • No back packs or large purses. We will ask you to leave them in an unattended box near our desk, or go put them in your car. We are not liable or responsible for your bags.
