About Miscellany Thrift and Vintage

Miscellany Thrift & Vintage is based in Vancouver, B.C. We specialize in vintage pieces and your favourite  street and high-end brands such as Artizia, Tommy Hilfiger, Oak and Fort, and many more. We hand pick all of our clothing to find the most unique pieces for our store and website. We steam everything before it hits the floor and make sure all pieces are kept in perfect condition.

We have worked with some amazing charities and community groups over the last 10 years, such as Vancouver Rape Relief, Transition Houses, and Food Banks.

Here at Miscellany Thrift & Vintage, we believe that the clothes we wear have the power to create change. We believe that thrifting is more than just finding an amazing deal on your favourite brands or designers. It’s about shopping with intention and rejecting the fast fashion culture and opting for sustainability. Styling yourself from the inside out!

What do we do?

We are proud to provide high-quality name brand and vintage clothing, jewelry, houseware and home décor to local and International customers. While we are a for profit business, it is equally important to us that we give back to our community. We work closely with charities that support safety and equitable living in the Vancouver community, we donate to local elementary schools and local businesses because when our community thrives, we feel good.  We are grateful to share the work of local Artisans and carry work from the lower mainland such as handmade soaps, jewellery & art cards.

What matters to us?

It is really important to us that there is a space where everybody feels welcome in an inclusive space, and that we cultivate and maintain a community vibe. There is always good music playing and big smiles to greet you. You can spend as little as five minutes in the shop and find an absolute gem, or spend an hour gathering a pile of amazing pieces for incredible prices! At Miscellany we are intentional about community connection, equitability, access, RRR, upcycling, repurposing, affordable quality clothing, and access. It matters to us that we truly Belong to a community and that you feel part of that when you come in.

It is taking the better part of me to write a review because the greedy part of me would love to have Zainab and her... store all to myself! I have been wearing head to toe "Miscellany" for years now. I met the magical and generous soul, Zainab years ago when she had the shop on East Hastings which was around the corner from my home. I really cannot tell you how many incredible pieces I have found here, both vintage and high end, but trust me, it is very difficult not to leave with something great. Side note, the men's section and is awesome and I shop for my partner here too. I now go to Miscellany in Mt.Pleasant and I love it just as much. I mean to be honest I would travel anywhere in the city to go to Miscellany 🙂read more

Today, I was treated very poorly while trying to buy not rent 5 vintage and thrift fashion items from the Miscellany on... Broadway (not the one on Commercial Drive which is owned by a lovely lady called Portia I believe).I told her I am hoping to buy wardrobe for an independent film to support their cause. I took 5 items into the change room, started picking 3 more and asked her politely to put them aside. She proceeded to call me entitled, a victim not a survivor of sexual assault. I asked her if there are vouchers for GBV survivors and how to access them.She was using her white privilege, her position behind a desk to throw out a woman who has given so much to this community.I tried to buy a sweater for my mental health short documentary. I tried to also buy suit bottoms for an interview with a global NGO.I run Healthy Art Project, a social enterprise, that has supported women, kids, men and other people.. with projects that build healthier communities through art.This employee completely misunderstood my request to partner as a SHEO who is on welfare currently, but also supporting another community cause.When I asked for a business card or an email, the lady working on Saturday Feb 23 2019, she said "get out of my store you are entitled!"You are rude and a victim.You are not a survivor.I think I was treated like a shoplifter perhapshow the homeless often are treatedShe threatened to call the police, over a woman... Literally trying buy wardrobe for her small independent film.Please kindly support Aunt Leah's on Main and Broadway or the other Miscellany on Commerical Drive.For me, customer service is key. Being treated like a piece of dirt is not an experience I expected on a Saturday morning. Thanks!I took the business card and will be calling the owner to inform her that her staff member could use some customer service experience. I've been serving the community her and abroad since I was 19. Thxread more
