Spring jackets from GunStreet Vintage!

Is it still cold in your neck of the woods? Montreal is expecting 25cm of snow today so if anybody can attest to those winter blues it’s this gal! BUT, GunStreet has a bunch of darling lightweight jackets that’ll put a spring in your step! The best part? By the time snail mail delivers your package the tulips will be in full bloom!

Shop by decade on GunStreet!

We rang in the new year by testing a new cataloging method on GunStreet – you can now shop by decade (60s, 70s, 80s), instead of by garment category (dresses, tops, skirts).

We reckon that if you’re hip enough to be browsing vintage threads on Etsy, you’re probably pretty in-tune with your personal style! Do you enjoy the boxy cuts and pastel colours of the 1960s? Does Janis Joplin’s style make you dream in psychedelic colours? Perhaps you have a penchant for 1980s glam rock nostalgia and acid washed denim? Then again, the 1990s might have you hooked on fishnets and cropped tops

Let us know what you think!

GunStreet’s First Ever Pop-Up Shop!

On the weekend of May 14-15, GunStreet hosted a first ever Pop-Up event at Brock-Art Boutique in Montreal. The boutique, which specializes in up-cycled decor and vintage curiosities all the while showcasing local artisans, was gracious enough to let us set up shop for the weekend. It was a hoot!

It’s hard to believe that my little hobby shop is growing into such an exciting project!  It’s hard to believe that so many bloggers, artists, and local fashionistas are taking an interest in my enterprise which, until now, was a solo project conducted anonymously through the internet!

It’s amazing how many doors open up when you step outside of your comfort zone!

Return to Space

He fell onto our planet in 1947 to redefine music, fashion and art, and to test the limits of the limelight, which he would discover to be infinite.
