Vintage Destination: Vancouver, Canada (Main Street/Riley Park)

We traveled to Vancouver, Canada over the long weekend, and I wanted to share a few of my favorite neighborhoods/vintage shops that we discovered while there!

We had some fun wandering Main Street a little. The clothing was not the cheapest, but I really liked the quality/selection at the tiny little shop Woo Vintage.

One of the real gems of Main Street, though is the charming Regional Assembly of Text. From the display of pale green vintage typewriters in the window to the impressive wall of file cabinets at the register, everything about this store was kind of magical. We spent forever peeking inside the art drawers, loitering in the tiny reading room, drooling over the vintage displays, and making lists of people to write real paper love letters to.

I've made a Vintage and Thrift map of Vancouver and other places that seem like they might be of interest if you ever make it out that way. If you have suggestions/favorites, let me know and we'll update the map!

I hope you ran into our favorite band, J. C. Auto, while you were there.
