Vad du kommer att göra

Main Street is a continually developing and socially happening hub. If you love thrifting you will be in heaven because it is the Mecca of thrift, consignment, vintage and luxury resale boutiques in Vancouver. But, it can be a bit overwhelming if you aren’t familiar with the area and don’t know which boutiques have the best quality items.
We’ll meet at a local cafe for introductions. Then we’ll take a curated walking tour of 3 or 4 of my top picks for on-trend consignment, vintage, and luxury resale boutiques on Main Street. You’ll discover unique vintage pieces, luxury designer brands, and on-trend footwear and handbags.
I’ll tell you about the background of the boutique shops.
I’ll help you search the racks for that perfect item you’ve been looking for, if you want some help.
I’ll provide resale shopping tips if you are new to thrifting. We’ll check the sales racks for deals.
As we’re walking between boutiques, I’ll share with you a bit of the history of the neighbourhood.
I’ll also point out other local shops, restaurants and cafes that are my favourites that you can later explore on your own. At the end of the tour I’ll send you a list of other thrift and vintage stores you can visit.

I’ve been thrifting on Main Street since the mid-90s when I worked on community projects and hung out in the local cafes. At first it was all about buying fashion my budget would allow. It’s become much more then that. Thrifting embodies many things l’m passionate about: the shop local movement, supporting local charities, and it’s eco-friendly. Of course finding the sweet deal is still key. I thrift everywhere I wander in my city and wherever else I travel. From thrift stores to luxury resale, it’s about exploration and possibilities - you never know what special item you might find. I also consign my designer finds that I no longer wear with the boutiques and consider myself a "hobbyist" reseller.

Var ni kommer att vara

This tour takes you to boutiques that are unique to Vancouver and provides a different kind of shopping experience while also experiencing the flavour of the local neighbourhood. I'll introduce you to a mix of 3 or 4 of the best thrift, contemporary consignment, and vintage boutiques. For exclusive group bookings, I can customize the tour, for example, vintage only. Shops will make exceptions to the number of people allowed in for family groups.

This was a fun shopping experience and I discovered some truly unique stores. Karen was wonderful and very friendly but the experience was a bit pricey for what it’s worth ($60 per person is quite steep for a tour!) It was definitely fun to browse with Karen, but with a little research on the shopping district, you might be able to venture out and do this experience on your own.

My experience with Karen was wonderful, as she introduced me to a pocket of Vancouver I never would have known existed. Karen has extensive knowledge about vintage shopping in Vancouver and even catered the experience to my tastes. I really enjoyed this unique experience. Thanks Karen!

I loved my experience shopping with Karen today! I wandered off around the stores immediately because we went into some great ones. I came back with loads of really special stuff I will have a hard time fitting in my suitcase. Vancouver has a great consignment scene and Karen has been scoping it out since 1979. The consignment gods were with us today, I wish you the same when you sign up with Karen! (Rebekah Minkoff bag, All Saints backpack, Coach wallet, gorgeous sparkly bracelet, Top Shop coat, shirt, and T-shirt dress, doc Marten’s boots ((Karen I went back to the antique one, they were basically brand new!!)), a few other cool items. I went nuts and do not regret it. I don’t normally care about name brands but they are quality investment pieces at the fraction of the cost, some even 10%-$30 percent off). Lucky day!!

Great experience for exploring the Little Mountain/Mount Pleasant neighborhood! Nice collection of thrift shops in a small area. Karen accepted my late request for the experience and came out on a cold and snowy day. Super awesome host.
