Mine and Yours Grand Opening

Happy Friday fabulous people.

Eco fashion and bargain hunting in Vancouver just scored big because Mine and Yours Co opened.

In fact, this weekend is their grand opening event. From Friday to Sunday, this lovely boutique located at 1060 Hornby Street is having 20% off.

I have briefly introduced you guys to the founders of Mine and Yours when I co hosted an event with them in the summer.

The love ladies, Jigme and Courtney came together and created Mine and Yours, a new fashion concept inspired by the likes of Buffalo Exchange and Crossroads found all over the United States.

Currently, Vancouver has a few good consignment stores. I am no stranger to selling my goods in a consignment store. However, very few of them would actually pay you out for your items right away. Which is a prevalent practice amongst recycled fashion stores in the States.

Inspired by this model, Jigme and Courtney decided to take it a step further. They decided to make themselves stand out by curating their closet buys from the most fashionable individuals in Vancouver. The list extended to bloggers, stylists and socialights. The result is nothing short of spectacular. They end up with a store filled with gems that you would only see if you were other wise a globetrotter.

I am so glad to have met Jigme serendipitously in the lady's room when I did the Thrift Chic Challenge for Eco Fashion Week 06. I knew she would be up to something wonderful in the near future. Fast forward a few months, I am being smitten by almost every piece of clothing in her and Courtney's lovely store.

Mine and Yours Fashion Talks Blogger Event

Yesterday I co-hosted an intimate blogger gathering with Mine & Yours Co. A local buy, sell and trade fashion house that will open very soon. The inventory is curated from the closets of Vancouver's most fashionable. Many of the bloggers that are attending this event has sold their items to Mine & Yours. I love this concept and elevating eco fashion to the next level. All these items will be fashionable, and one of a kind gems are congregated to the same place.

The founder and I met in the ladies room at Eco Fashion Week 06 after my Thrift Chic Show.

Some connections are made effortlessly and meant to last.

Both of us love making connections and we decided to provide a good avenue for bloggers to connect and bond and net work.
