Vitamin Daily: What's Mine is Yours
If clearing out your closet or spending less money on clothes is part of your plan for 2014, then we suggest you check out Mine & Yours.
Inspired by the trend-driven consignment stores in LA, this downtown boutique purchases or trades clothes with Vancouver’s most stylish shoppers. They describe it as a revolving community closet, filled with party dresses, casual wear, and killer shoes. We spotted a $40 Versace skirt, four pairs of Christian Louboutins at $300 per pair, and a Vince leather shift dress for $190. Expect to find brands like Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton alongside Wilfred and Topshop. Items are priced to move quickly, and they pay cash instead of using a complicated and time consuming consignment system (which also means they tend to get the best stuff).
Buying days are Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, so clear out your closet and exchange it for cash or trade it for something new, or as we like to say, new to you. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
