With the passing of national thrift day and the current demand for sustainable fashion, thrifting has become more common than before. Most of us have been or started thrifting to find unique pieces to revitalize our wardrobes or get designer pieces for the low. But at times it can be hard to find a new spot to thrift or even finding something different than your usual spot. That is why I’ve gathered a list of the top 5 best thrift stores that you should check out next time you’re in need of some inspo.
- Black Market
256 Queen St W
Toronto, ON M5V 1Z8
A hidden gem. One of the most iconically known spots in the city, known for unique finds in a unique setting. Even with their recent relocation to 347 Queen St W business is still booming.
- Plato’s closet
2650 Eglinton Ave E
Scarborough, ON M1K 2S3
Known for their selling secondhanded clothing for teens and adults alike that are fashionable and trendy. This thrift store has been a go-to for many. The original location is found in the east side of the city. There are a few locations spread out throughout the city. A new location is opening up in The Stockyards which will offer the same great fashionable and trendy finds.
- Value Village
1319 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6H 1P3
Out of all of the Value Village locations in Toronto the location at Bloor and Landsdowne seems to always have what you’re looking for, whether it be a perfect pair of new (old) Levi’s or everyday basic pieces to revamp your closet.
- Double Take
310 Gerrard St E, Toronto, ON M5A 2G7
Huge second-hand store with a wide selection of high-quality women and men’s clothing. All the proceeds going back to the Yonge Street Mission Foundation which focuses on helping make a change, and ending the cycle of poverty in our communities
- Just Thrift
53 Orfus Rd
North York, ON M6A 1L7
They really live up to their slogan of “ Designer brands at prices you will love.” This spot is great for just that even though at times some of the fakes can get mixed in with the bunch but its still worth the search. Another added bonus is that it is just down the road from Yorkdale Shopping Centre, so it feels like you hit up two spots for the trip of one!
