Canadian Secondhand Shopping Guide

secondhand shopping guide

I’m often asked for suggestions of where to shop when it comes to secondhand.  Yes, I shop the big, well known thrift shops as that is what is closest to me. However, I also love to support the small, independent shops whenever I can.  Months ago, I asked you to help me create a list of the secondhand shops you go to in your communities here in Canada.  I received an amazing list of small shops for clothing, kids clothes, furniture, and home goods.  Here is the list we created together. If you see a shop missing that you think I should add, just send me a DM over on Instagram. I know there are so many more out there.  Several of the shops listed below do offer shipping, so click through the list to see if you can find your next new-to-you, preloved piece.
