Vintage, thrift, and Lula on Main St.

Posted by Rosa Tang On 7:57 PM
I had such a great time with my best friend from wasabiecake yesterday, rummaging through vintage and thrift stores for 5 hours and covering 20 blocks of one of Vancouver's most cultural and trendy neighbourhoods. SoMa (or South Main St) has increasingly become the go-to spot for neat eats, perfect cafes, and a combination of living-on-a-dime vintage shops & high-end boutiques. The best part of my day was finding Lula in Vancouver! Eeeeeeeee!!! Will be posting my favourite pages from Issue 12 soon.

    Great post! Thanks for introducing us to all these great stores! Awesome for a beginner vintage shopper like me but I might have to start at Value village first lol I love how these stores have such a boutique feel to them! =D Im glad to know that Katy Perry lived up to your expectations! I'd hate to do to a concert with high hopes and then finding out that it wasn't as great as I thought it'd be!

    I was at Stanley Park weeks ago >< These photos are quite old in that regard! Oh yes we need to chant MR.SUN MR.SUN now or else he might never come out but I did catch glimpses of him throughout the week so perhaps he's waking up now! =D I still have hope!!!!

    P.s thanks for offering me the ticket!!!

    SoMa is one of my favourite shopping spots in Vancouver. Vincent Park is another great boutique (not vintage but full of wonderful finds)
    I haven't been to Temple of a Modern Girl in ages but may just have to hit them up this week!

    I've never been thrift shopping before, but I would love to go one day. You found some great finds! I love the lace cami top :)

    I heart SoMa! I really need to get out there more often!

    Rosa, you make thrifting look like an art form!

    Lots of love from Sydney,
