There’s a new vintage store in town, with racks upon racks of clothing waiting for you to dig through ’em. Montreal’s Jack Lux has opened a Toronto pop-up vintage store in the former Lomography location at 536 Queen Street West (at Bathurst) until October 23rd. Over 200,000 items from the Quebec Government’s costume archives (cuz we all knew they had that in the first place, right?!) are for sale, with thousands of pieces rotating in-store to look through. Prices are reasonable and items range from the 1920s – 199’s. There are women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, coats and hats, and tons of shoes in the basement.
Recently Jack Lux invited bloggers Hawley Dunbar of Sidewalk Hustle, Anita Clarke of I Want I Got, and our very own photographer and vintage-lover Becca Lemire to dress mannequins for a window display. Becca dug around Jack Lux one afternoon and went for a motel maid inspired get-up on one mannequin, and a 1960s blue patterned mish-mash on the other. What will you dig up at Jack Lux?! Happy shopping.
