WE ARE NOW CLOSED TO BUYING FROM THE PUBLIC. If you have brought us amazing pieces in the past, please do get in touch and we can try to make an appointment in the near future. Please note we are closing down shop, so taking on more inventory is not our priority at the moment. Thank you!
Gemini Rising is always looking for incredible vintage to add to our collection. We select items outright on the spot and do not operated on consignment terms, so you don't have to wait to get paid! This is a great way to give your unworn or gently used clothing a new home and keep them out of landfills. We are of the few stores in Vancouver to buy vintage clothing,. We offer 25% in cash or cheque. You have the choice of doing a 40% trade-in store credit if you like. Please note that in the future we are being more particular about the sort of stock we are taking on, with less of a focus on casual wear, and more on older, special, and designer pieces (ie. items that will sell for at least $60 and up.) Items must be 20 years older or more to be considered vintage (mid-90's or earlier). We love pre-1960's items and high end designer labels, such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Yves Saint Laurent, Cartier, Moschino, Versace, etc.
We like breathable, natural fabrics like cotton, silk, and linen, as well as rayon, lace, crochet, suede, leather, metallics, and embroidery so please be selective when bringing polyester or synthetic fabrics. Items must be in great condition, and free of odors, stains, holes, missing buttons, or other damage.
Feel free to email ahead of time with photos if you have a large amount of goods and want to let us know know what kinds of items you are bringing in, but we cannot commit to buying something until we see it. No appointment is necessary but please call a day ahead of time to make sure the buyer is in store. Please see shop hours below and take a moment to view our lookbook / online store to familiarize yourself with the styles we accept and our price points.
