Montreal: Where To Shop
I bet Macklemore got his big-ass coat from the thrift shop down the road, in Montreal. The streets (head to St Laurent Blvd in particular) are lined with op shops and antique stores. All the bits and pieces are good quality and, even better, affordable. Thank God, because I’ve only got twenty dollars in my pocket. Eva B (pictured – 2015 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montreal, QC H2X 2T3) is the biggest of them all, with three storeys overflowing with stuff. Although not as big, Friperie St. Laurent (3976 St Laurent Blvd) is worth a look. Of course there are also the more mainstream stores on Rue Ste Catherine like H&M, Top Shop, Zara, Forever 21, Victoria’s Secret etc., but you’re not going to get indie points back home when you say your top is from Zara. Everyone can buy that shit online.
