Hot Shop: Mine & Yours Yorkville

October 21, 2023

Whether you’re looking for a Simone Rocha dress or an Hermès handbag, you’ll want to check out the new Mine & Yours boutique in Yorkville. The West Coast luxury resale and consignment retailer, which already boasts multiple locations in Vancouver, opened its first Toronto location in late August. 

“It’s been a long time coming,” says owner Courtney Watkins, explaining that a Toronto pop-up was in the works for 2020 until the pandemic changed those plans. It took some time to find the perfect spot but now she’s thrilled with the boutique’s prime location. “I came to Toronto, I went to all the different neighborhoods and I was 100 per cent set on wanting our first location to be Yorkville Avenue,” she says. “One of the reasons is, resale is just gaining popularity, and now customers who are shopping at Holt Renfrew and all the top luxury brands are also buying secondhand. That’s why I wanted to make sure we positioned ourselves right in the mix of all the luxury stores.” 

At the Yorkville store, like at every Mine & Yours boutique, there is a floor-to-ceiling handbag wall. “Handbags are our top category and it is what drives a lot of people to the store,” says Watkins. You’ll find a mix of price points and brands displayed luxuriously within the two-level space. Expect a wide selection of clothing racks filled with pieces from both contemporary and designer brands. “We have dresses for $95 and handbags for $50,000,” she says, adding that her team of professionally trained buyers can be selective with what they choose to accept from suppliers, taking into account desirability and wear of items being sold or consigned. 

“What makes us stand out from most consignment stores is that we own the majority of our inventory,” Watkins says. “Anyone selling to us chooses from the options to get paid out in cash or store credit, or they can consign with us. We find that this approach meets the different needs of our clients, depending on their goals. If they find something on the shelves that catches their eye immediately they may want to go for the store credit option and snag their dream bag on the spot!” 

She adds, “We are currently buying for fall/winter and are confidently curating the best resale collection in the city.” Truc Nguyen
