Retail Therapy: USED House of Vintage

Processed with VSCOcam with f1 preset
Nestled between the walls of trendy Analog and tasty Clive Burger sits 17th Avenue’s vintage mecca. Sister to long-time Calgary fav, the Rocket, USED House of Vintage (738A 17th Ave S.W.) is a shop for lovers of high and low retro fashions, the colourful and collectible, ranging from the 1910s to the 1990s. With roots in Vancouver and an eclectic finger on the city’s pulse, USED broke ground in YYC in 2007 and has brought us fashion, found and freed, ever since.

The wise words ‘manifest your destiny’ ring truest at USED – visualize a Spice Girl’s T circa 1995, or the silk dress of your dreams adorned with blue butterflies – and voila! USED delivers again. Cruise their wall of sunglasses, their racks of sundresses and shelves filled with shoulder bags and clutches, and feel the adrenaline that makes thrifting the city’s greatest sport.Processed with VSCOcam with f1 preset

Or choose from their year-round collection of Stampede-ready cowboy boots and rest easy knowing someone else has broken them in for you. With racks of designer goods, streetwear, and curated vintage, USED is filled to the brim with price friendly finds so you can hunt for more than just a bargain.Processed with VSCOcam with f1 preset
