Finding the best consignment and vintage clothing stores can help you find the perfect outfit. Whether you prefer a vintage look or you just want to find a great deal on brand name clothing choices, three specific choices make it easier.
Trend Clothing Company
A second-hand shop with brand names, Trend Fashions is one of the top places to find your trendy gear. Owner Donna Riopel has a concept that appeals to the fashion-conscious crowd. The store is full of jewelry, shoes, clothing and accessories. They buy old clothing, new items and they will even give you a store credit for your unwanted items.
Trend is located at 120 10 Street NW in Calgary. They are open Monday through Thursday from 10am to 7pm, Friday from 10am to 8pm, Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sunday from 12pm to 5pm.
Man of Distinction
Guys need to look sharp at an affordable price too! Too often, men's clothing is relegated to a lonely corner in consignment shops. But at Man of Distinction, each of the store's three locations is exclusively devoted to vintage and gently-worn men's clothing, shoes and other accessories. You'll also find brand-new items bearing impressive labels, because Man of Distinction carries a few exclusive lines. As with other superior consignment shops, Man of Distinction offers both high-end and casual looks.
Man of Distinction has three Calgary-area locations. Its downtown store is at #115-12100 Macleod Tr. SE in Calgary. Hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The nearby Inglewood location is at 1418 9th Ave SE, and the Okotoks store can be found at Unit 12B 49 Elizebeth St. Check the website for hours and directions.
