Mintage – opening on West 4th (October 17, 2008)
Mintage is coming to West 4th! Also located in Gastown and on Commercial Drive, this vintage clothing and accessories store is perhaps best known for it’s clothing by the pound sales. At price points including $5, $10 and $15 for a pound of clothing, Mintage Vintage would be a great place to shop for unique textile patterns or for clothing to cut up and alter…or even for Halloween! Earlier this year, at their Commercial Drive location, they had an innovative $5/bag sale: buy a bag for $5 and take home all the clothing you can stuff into it! It’ll be interesting to see how a store like this will fit into the Kitsilano neighbourhood!
