1. Citizen Vintage
One of the city’s most well-loved vintage stores, this secondhand institution aims to provide a sustainable alternative to fast fashion. By recycling and upcycling vintage pieces and materials, this shop creates totally unique pieces that fit current fashion trends without being environmentally harmful. Their artist selections, where local illustrators design unique threads, are always worth checking out (a Celine Dion crewneck, anyone?). The original location is based on Saint-Laurent Boulevard in Mile End, but there’s a Plateau outpost as well on the same street.
