discollection: in memoriam



TRAVIS SAYS: "her name is kim and she is the owner of this great little vintage store on hastings called discollection. the pieces are custom or reworked or original vintage. I've been there many times and found so many of my favorite vintage pieces, including craig's birthday present... out of all the places i've shopped, i've never met anyone so helpful and friendly."

***

it's true. the scarf travis gave me for my birthday is rad. the sad thing is that discollection recently sold off the last of it's merchandise.

"due to a number of problems in the building that discollection is housed in, discollection is forced to close its doors." - discollection.ca.

but don't worry though, they are still operating on-line, to an extent.

Aw, you guys! The commodified's posts are getting so good. Not that it wasn't up to par before but I guess with the weather and all, the city's putting some sort of effort.

I have those boots...good old army & navy.
And I am so distraught that I wasn't able to attend the closing sale.
