Stockroom treasure chest

Every season for 7 years we have put treasures into boxes and on racks in our stockroom as we move from one season to the next. We keep adding racks, and now there is no more space! The time has arrived for us to make space for new products and projects.

We will open the door to the stockroom at 10 on Saturday, August 26th. We have dipped below cost price of all items to create an incentive to you to come and find a treasure.

Clothes – dresses, coats, pants, tops
Accessories – scarves, hats, wrist warmers, tights, necklaces…….

See you on Saturday!

Summer Sale!

We’re enjoying another wonderful Vancouver summer!  The sky is blue, and the sun is HOT!  Vancouver summers are L O N G!  Sometimes they are slow to arrive, but when they do, they stay!

We have a super selection of dresses and tops made from linen and linen blends to allow you to freshen up your summer wardrobe.  And we have many on sale.  Our rack sale has grown to a three-rack sale as we reduce prices!

Beside the two summer racks, we have a WOOLIES rack — a wonderful selection of all kinds of woolies!

Follow our ‘new arrivals‘ page to see our selection of summer clothes and what is on sale — updated regularly.
