True Value Vintage Clothing
This second hand shop is an oasis of the funky, the retro and the cheap amid a desert of the brand-spanking new, the relatively dear and the shiny of Vancouver's Downtown shopping Mecca, Robson Street . Let the heavy bass or disco thread you downstairs to this grand vintage lover's dream. Sift through the racks of nostalgia-inducing gear while rubbing shoulders with city glam. The staff, though young and painfully hip, is nevertheless attentive.
Value Vintage is great,eventhou the whole 'vintage' fashion is getting a little over-rated, value vintage still is great and is different from all the other vintage stores. They create old vintage into new fashionable clothing.
It more-so gives a new name to 'style' then being over-rated
True Value Vintage only has one truthful word in it's name. Vintage. This place is a glorified Value Village with bad lighting (so you don't notice sweat stains, rips, and loose strings), and bad service. The band t-shirts (not even tour/concert tees, the ones you get at places such as Bang-On and Hot Topic) are all in the range of 50-75$ no matter what the condition. Everything smells and looks worn in and used. I spent 1 hour in that shop and not once did an employee say a word to me, no agknowledgement whatsoever. There was nothing, I repeat nothing there for under 30$ and I bet they added 20 or 30 dollars to the original NEW retail price. It was a total waste of time to go there, luckily they have a Lululemon or else the trip really would have been lost. You have a better bet going through your parents or grandparents closet.
This place is a joke. Really, the whole vintage clothing trend is getting to be one big marketing ploy; now that it's "fashionable" to wear vintage/retro clothing, stores like TVV can take advantage of their customers' need to be in on the latest trends. The prices are not that bad, but they are about the same amount that you would pay for the same item brand new, and a lot of the items are really not "vintage" -- just old and discarded. The in-house line of pieced-together shirts and skirts from old salvation army finds has some cute items... but they are WAAAYY over-priced. You could get a t-shirt for thirty cents at value village and chop it up yourself. Also, there is a reason that the lighting in TVV is so bad. A lot of the clothes are ripped or stained, and smell funny; all things that are common in thrift stores, but not in trendy vintage boutiques, which is what TVV is trying to be. If you want a worn-out, vintage t-shirt, you can pay a dollar for it at the Sally Ann, or thirty at TVV. Vancouver has many great second-hand stores and thrift shops to chose from, but True Value Vintage is not one of them.
