Spotlight on Bex Vintage

Mid-Century Modern Designs & Vintage Furniture

Mid-century modern designs have become a source of inspiration for much of the latest design, furniture and decor trends, but if you want a glimpse of the real deal – timeless, one-of-a-kind items made between the 1950’s and the 1980’s – then Bex Vintage is the place to go.

Sustainability Benefits of Vintage Shopping

Buying vintage also reaps many other benefits including the sustainability factor of buying second hand as opposed to brand new. Each year, millions of tons of household furnishings are dumped into landfills across Canada, but when you shop at places like Bex Vintage, you are finding beautiful, enduring products, as well as reducing furniture waste. To further their environmental impact, Bex Vintage also offers a charity program called Charity Click + Collect, where 20% of the proceeds from items in this collection go to their participating charities, including The Alice Sanctuary, Little Warriors, Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS), and HIS Global (Humane Society International).
