Toronto Vintage: Queen West Antique Centre

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Shannon of What's Up Whimsy and her friend Ness for a little vintage browsing at Queen West Antique Centre. In Toronto's west end, where Queen intersects King (@Roncesvalles), there is a mecca of shops for vintage lovers. If you're seeking a sleek teak console, cool industrial storage, or perhaps a rare Eames shell chair, you're apt to find what you're looking for at QWAC. Just be prepared to pay market value, this is not your neighbourhood thrift store.

Queen West Antique Centre is affiliated with FILTER at 75 Jarvis Street (north of King), where they stock all of the really good stuff that's in perfecto condition. Check them out too!!
