You can get yourself something special and show Old St. Nick who is boss. We suggest grabbing something you’ve always wanted but never needed like a velvet cloak or corset.

But wait, what if you don’t live in Vancouver? Don’t worry, you’ll be able to access our awesome sale online as well! December 25 and 26 you can get 20% off all regular priced items by using the discount code BOXINGDAY20.  That means you can shop in your Christmas jammies while sipping on bailey’s and coffee from the comfort of your bed. Sounds like a good day to me.

Under $75 – Pocket Belts

Is your friend a little whimsical but wants things to have a purpose?  Pocket Belts are where function meets fashion. Available in several different styles.

Everyone needs several pairs of goggles for all possible goggle related activities.  Going to burning man? Goggles. Time traveller? Goggles. It’s instant steampunk, instant mad science and not to mention instant fun.

Gloves finish an outfit and take your look to a step above ordinary.  They also keep your hands toasty. We have a variety of gloves and glovettes under $25.
