Pop-Up Pick: shop Preloved’s reclaimed vintage pieces in person
Before Preloved closed its Queen West flagship at the beginning of last year, the neighbourhood fixture had made a name for itself by transforming tired, second-hand clothing into colourful, on-trend collections. The indie boutique is now online-only, but this week the team is going back to their retail roots and hosting a four-day pop-up in Cabbagetown where shoppers will have the chance to browse the brand’s one-of-a-kind pieces in person. The temporary shop will be selling Preloved’s newest collection, which consists of playful prints, dreamy dresses and plenty of patchwork sweaters. Everything will be priced under $100, with most items falling somewhere between $30 and $70. “It’ll be a great chance for fans old and new to come out and touch, feel and try on the new pieces,” says founder Julia Grieve. One of our favourite items is this patterned skort, which comes in a range of prints and proves there’s still hope for Hawaiian shirts.
