From Her Closet to Your Closet

I had heard that a secondhand clothing store had opened recently on Wharncliffe Road, just north of Riverside so I decided to do a reconnaissance mission this past weekend.  The store is called "My Closet",  and my first impression was that it's very tiny, but the cheerful colours on the front of the store are very welcoming, as is the owner, Jennifer Knechtel.
Jennifer's shop has a small, but well-organized selection of what she refers to as "pre-loved" clothing.  Items are clean and in very good condition, and her prices are competitive with other resale clothing stores.  When I visited she had a nice selection of party dresses, purses, and some cool fall boots.
I would have purchased these Nine West psychedelic platform sandals if they had been a wee bit wider.
These size 40 suede boots were tempting as well, but the heel was higher than I could comfortably wear.  I did come away with a very cute flowered cardigan for $8 and a faux suede skirt for $10.  Knechtel is passionate about customer service, and will be adding new stock as often as possible, to ensure there is something for everyone's taste and budget.  The store is a short walk from downtown, the #2 Dundas bus stops almost at her doorstep, and the #20 Cherryhill will get you there as well.
The store is located at A-69 Wharncliffe Rd north, and is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 11 am - 3 pm, Wednesdays and Fridays 6 pm - 8 pm, and Saturdays 10 am - 1:30 pm

    I've been to My Closet several times. I like the way Jennifer changes her front window often always putting together outfits that have great style. I find her personable, helpful and fun to talk to. Check out the quality of the clothing in her shop!
