Inside Out pop-up shop brings Montreal flavour to Toronto
In a shocking twist, pop-up shop season has already kicked off, long before the holidays: first Philip Sparks launched his first trunk shop in the Junction earlier this week, and now Torontonians craving some unique vintage can head over to Inside Out, a pop-up from Montreal that opens on October 4 at 1040 Queen St. W. (formerly A2Zane, which we’re told has packed up and moved east) next week. Members of PETA should steer clear, since Inside Out specializes in vintage furs, but what we’re most drawn to is the assortment of vintage coats and women’s hats that may—we’re hoping—give our fall wardrobe a certain je ne sais quoi. In addition to selling one-off vintage finds from La Belle Province, the store will act as an informal gallery space to exhibit work by young Toronto artists. But like most pop-up shops, Inside Out is a limited-time offer: all pieces were hand-picked in Montreal and are one-of-a-kind, which means once they’re gone, vintage seekers are out of luck.
