SHOP TALK: Aunt Olive’s vintage eatery

Photo by Angela Gordon

Full of great bric-a-brac and colourful finds, this chic little nook ups the ante on your shopping day by inviting you to enjoy a soup and sandwich while you browse. The menu is simple, with a quiche of the day and root beer floats, but it all fits into the store’s cottage-comfort vibe. Filled to the ceiling with great pieces from all eras, there’s plenty for both men and women. The stock changes constantly, so check back often and see what kind of gems you can find. The sale bin is always worth rummaging through, especially for those who like a little craft project. Carrying anything from gold lamé dresses to novelty tableware, there’s bound to be something at Aunt Olive’s for everyone.
