rhymes with orange

i've been having a winnipeg-love kind of week so far, which brings me to today's post! please let me introduce a local shop called Rhymes with Orange, owned and run by Erin Thiessen and Stefanie Hiebert. this store is situated in the heart of the exchange district, which is a fun little area of downtown winnipeg that i adore. these gals have gained their fair share of retail experience over the years in other local clothing shops, and through selling vintage out of a cute little trailer at festivals. the girls know their stuff when it comes to retro clothes etc. and also make jaunts to thailand to pick up vintage-inspired threads!  i think it's inspiring to see such driven, hard-working young people doing what they love and "making it happen", so-to-speak, in my city. it gives me hope :) also, erin and stefanie are super sweet and friendly! i felt so welcomed in the shop. (thanks again  for letting me take some shots, girls!) 

want to check out Rhymes with Orange? here we be:

  6. It's sooo cool in there, I just love it. My husband and I were in Winnipeg for Canada Day Weekend last year, and Rhymes with Orange was one of the places I made sure we stopped. While we were there we found out about the Osborne Street festival going on and were able to go meet the girls at the trailer!! It was amazing. Here's the post I wrote about that, totally reminds me of yours ;)
