We all love a good deal. Why pay full price when you can buy a second-hand item at a fraction of the cost? Let’s face it – nabbing that pre-loved gem off the racks is all part of the thrill of the (bargain) hunt. And here in Penticton, you can browse for hours while exploring our vintage shops.
On the flip side, maybe you have a designer handbag in your closet, collecting dust? See below for some local consignment shops where you can sell it to the next happy owner – and make a few bucks in the process. We’ve pulled together this roundup of shops in Penticton alone (there are also many other great shops throughout the region) to help guide your next shopping exploration.
