MERCHANT OF COOL: Lovely Things Vintage

Funky fun vintage

  • May. 22, 2014 1:00 p.m.

Curating and reselling vintage items for an affordable price – that’s what Lovely Things Vintage is all about, says owner Chelsey Gordon.

“We like to have a selection of fun, funky pieces,” she explains.

“I remember going into vintage stores when I was younger and I remember not being able to afford many of the pieces and feeling a little out of place. We have a lot of return customers here because we try to have a really casual and welcoming atmosphere.”

Gordon opened Lovely Things Vintage in December of 2012.

“I had my own store during the same time when my parents owned a business in Royal Oak. They were nice enough to give me some space in their store to open my own business but when they closed their store I went online with everything until this space opened up,” the young entrepreneur says.

The space, at 768 Yates St. (under Lyle’s Place) is packed with locally sourced vintage, new and handcrafted treasures of all types, including plenty for the summer and festival seasons.

“We have lots of great stock right now in for summer. Lots of on-trend styles like high-waisted shorts, bleached and distressed denim, hand-made floral crowns, festival wear, lots of fun summer stuff.”
