A Fashionable Hole In The Wall

Don't you just love when you randomly come across a store that ends up being your little wonderland?

On our trip to Vancouver, Canada I happened to stumble upon this amazing little thrift shop. It was a little sketchy at first as we walked down this incredibly steep staircase. However to my surprise those steps led me to the coolest thrift shop in Canada.
From 50s dresses to denim jackets that cowboys could have worn, I felt like a little kid in a candy store(but it was much better then candy...CLOTHES) There was so much to look at, I could have spent countless hours digging and digging for fashionable treasures.

Yes yes you might be thinking well did you buy something?
Of course I did, I couldn't leave without a souvenir...so I got these awesome retro vintage bowling shoes. It is kind of random yes, but I have been bowling regularly with Phill and his friends. So I thought it couldn't be better, I needed them anyways. And now I know I will be the most stylish girl at the alley with my personalized bowling ball and 20 year old vintage bowling shoes!
Heres some pics:
The awesome vintage bowling shoes!









So I just want to say that always keep your eyes open because you never know what you are gonna find! But make sure if your interested to head to Vancouver fast, because they are moving locations.

Have you ever stumbled upon an awesome place, if so where and what was it????

Hope you enjoyed the pictures(:
