Vintage Pop - Week Long Sale in Mile End

I've just gone through yet another Springtime closet cleanse in time for selling some vintage gems at le PopUp Shop week-long vintage sale in Mile End, put on by the good people of the Pop Montreal Festival (for whom I've organized a new designer's fashion show in the past and hosted last year). 

It's one thing to coordinate a huge sale like this, but one of the organizers, Ms. Marilis Cardinal , helps handle the shop with a smile. Drop by, say 'whaddup' to her.
I had a pre-sale in advance where I sold authentic men's vintage 50's 'aloha' shirts, and beautiful 60's and 70's maxi dresses for women that are particularly storied: handpicked from closets and tiny thrift shops across Canada and the States. At le PopUp Shop, I am selling platform wedges and sweet Spring dresses, perfect for bike riding and picnicking this Summer. 

I also urge you to check out the thrifted treasures of my dear friends from Caesar Pony and Tarantula Sisters (the latter of which is run by my girl, Audrey Cantwell, an amazing clothing designer whom my regular readers will recognize I have styled and modeled for). Check out the Etsy sites of these amazing ladies! 

Hope to see you at le PopUP Shop in the next few days.

Raji - I bought one of your pieces! A pretty, transparent maxi dress... 70's I think?

I went by today - the girl working by the door was probably not "the friendly one" you speak of! Oh well, still saw some pretty things. Going to come back on Friday... payday!

Thanks for the heads-up

I bought stuff from Tarantula - thanks for the tip!

The organizers however, could have done a better job in presenting the clothes: it was too messy and carelessly put together. The clothes needed more space to be able to 'present' them properly

I love the idea behind le PopUp Shop. Pre-loved fashion is definitely making a buzz; especially with trends from the 60s and 70s coming back full swing. Eco-friendly fashion practices? Yes please.
