Are you a thrifting pro? Or maybe you’re a newly found vintage fanatic? Well, we have gathered a few of our favourite thrifting & vintage spots in Calgary and we want to share them with you!
Other than the fact that running into someone in the same outfit of yours is virtually nonexistent, there are so many reasons to adapt thrifting and vintage shopping into your lifestyle. You can also help to reduce waste, support your community, and even score high-quality goods for low prices. Happy shopping!
Good Neighbour is intended for those in need. During the pandemic, volunteers noticed a huge need in the community and opened up Calgary’s first pay-what-you-want thrift store. This amazing group of volunteers takes the money raised by the store and uses it to buy food for the community. Good Neighbour even has a plant exchange program!
