Gadabout is more than just a vintage boutique. It’s a castle of hidden treasures, packed with a well-curated collection of vintage clothing, jewelry, accessories, and décor from the 1880s to the 1970s. Drop by this popular Leslieville shop on your next outing with friends and you’ll find yourselves dressing for another, more glamorous era. Instead of the funky denim and quirky t-shirts you’d find in a thrift shop, Gadabout is all about sophisticated garments that fit a strict definition of the word “vintage.” Every piece has a classic, timeless appeal, whether you’re browsing the 1920s and 1930s dresses or colorful ’50s era swimsuits. Nearly a century’s worth of clothes and knickknacks fill the shelves, so you’ll soon realize that you’re doing more than shopping, you’re exploring the depths of fashion history. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, poke around in Gadabout’s many drawers to uncover more buttons, handkerchiefs, postcards and pins. If the wall of sequined purses isn’t quite your friend’s cup of tea, perhaps he’ll find something that strikes his fancy in Manly Man Corner, which offers compasses, sports cards, swords, watches, and other guy stuff perfect for keeping him busy while you try on more outfits.
