Deluxe Junk information
A treasure trove of antique glories, from flapper dresses to sparkly evening shoes, and even the occasional old-school wedding outfit, this is one of Vancouver's best vintage stores. Mostly serving discerning females, it also has essential outfits for passing blokes, from cummerbunds to Hawaiian shirts. Check out the vintage cigarette holders – perfect for that 1940s dinner party you're time-traveling back to.
Even if you don't plan to buy a full outfit, this is a great spot to accessorize with a crystal-beaded handbag or a must-have vintage wig that reminds you of a '70s Abba gig. The staff is great here, too: ask for tips and they'll point out some real finds dotted around the store.
