Yes, you can still thrift shop during a pandemic

Everyone loves to find a good bargain. With many of us spending more time at home, shopping online has become even more popular. If you're obsessed with the thrill of the thrift store treasure hunt, you can still thrift shop during a pandemic.


A great place to begin your thrift shop treasure hunt is at one of the largest and most trusted online marketplaces on the planet -- eBay. You'll find a wealth of products from around the world, including items from small boutiques that you wouldn't otherwise have access to. Follow your favourite sellers -- so you'll know when they post a new item. You can shop with confidence because you're protected by eBay's money-back guarantee.


Etsy is another global online marketplace that connects buyers and sellers. They feature a dedicated 'vintage clothing' section to help you find the perfect piece. The opportunities are endless, with new merchandise going up online all the time.

Love that Bag etc

Love that Bag etc. is an online consignment shop based in fashion-conscious Montréal. They feature pre-loved, upscale, designer items at up to 90% off the original price.

Value Village

Value Village is here to help you look good, save money and 'thrift proud'. You can shop or donate at your local store and save even more by joining their Super Savers Club.

Salvation Army

Your local 'Sally Ann' is open and ready to serve its local community. The Salvation Army is also accepting donations again. If you are looking to declutter, or simply make room for more stuff, they're always happy to receive your donated clothing, electronics, housewares and more. Furniture donations are temporarily suspended.

We hope these resources help scratch your thrift-store-shopping itch.
