Monastiraki

Top choice vintage in Little Italy, Mile End & Outremont

This unclassifiable store named after a flea-market neighborhood in Athens calls itself a ‘hybrid curiosity shop/art space,’ but that doesn’t do justice to what illustrator Billy Mavreas sells: 1960s comic books, contemporary zines, silk-screen posters, and myriad antique and collectible knickknacks, as well as recent works mainly by local graphic artists.

It’s a must-visit for artsy types, but nearly everyone can find something in this carefully selected, fascinating jumble. In colder months they open only on weekends; details on website.
