Where to Shop In-Store for Second-Hand Luxury in Vancouver, BC

Collective Will has moved and more than tripled its space.

Collective Will’s elevated thrift store, located in Vancouver’s historic Dominion Building, has been given new life.

The micro-boutique occupied a 225 square foot suite in the converted office building when it opened in December 2021, sharing space with local brand R Denim after a year of exclusive e-commerce.

After R Denmic left, Collective Will took over the whole sequel with a collection of women’s clothing and accessories, but after almost a year in the space, owner Randa Salloum is literally stepping up.

The store remains in the Dominion Building, a stone’s throw from Victory Square on West Pender, but has moved to the 14th floor and nearly quadrupled the space.

“This move has helped me accommodate a larger selection of inventory, as well as an electronic communications studio that will facilitate the online clothing shopping portion of the site, which should be completed before the holidays,” said Sallum at VIA.

In addition to a larger selection of second-hand clothing, Salloum has introduced a selection of Canadian-made products.

Just before the move, Salloum began offering custom framed street photography prints by local artist Sabrina Fenster AKA Street Scout.

Fenster scours the world for the most fashionable people and moments and Salloum has selected six of his favorite photos from the Street Scout archives available to order in the store.

Salloum also stocks Melissa Araujo, a Brazilian jewelry designer. The collection (minus two products) is made of recycled mixed metals and Solloum says the new additions were a huge hit on opening night earlier this week. “I chose my favorites from her collection that complemented the clothes in the store,” she explains.

In addition to jewelry and photography, Collective Will positions itself as a lifestyle hub with candles from Toronto’s The MMW Lab and personal care beauty products from Bowen Island’s Sangre De Fruta brand.

“I chose their two personal scents (toning spray and oil roller) to be the perfect finishing touch for any outfit,” says Salloum and the candles are hand poured and inspired by decades and old movies. and Hollywood fashions and are only available in Vancouver from Collective Will.

Rounding out the beauty offering are six shades of colorful vegan nail polish by Montreal’s BKind.
