Vintage Soul Geek - La Belle Sirene

Vintage Soul Geek

Wednesday, March 25, 2015


Hey Beauties! 

Now that the snow has melted and the temperature has risen - even just a tiny bit - I am venturing outside of my warm apartment to visit some of my favourite stores and explore some of the new ones that have popped up over the last little while. I knew right away what store I wanted to visit first and that was the amazing Vintage Soul Geek. 

Vintage Soul Geek is a playground for anyone who has a love for anything vintage, be it fashion, jewellery, home wares or even oddities. Walking in the doors is like stepping back in time and experiencing little flashes of all the best decades gone by. Vintage Soul Geek has actually been in business since 2011 but was originally focused on Etsy and local markets. I first fell upon VSG last summer at the Village Station Bazaar, a little market held on Sundays in my neighbourhood. I actually blogged about that first meeting and you can read about it here. I instantly fell in love with the mass amounts of stunning costume jewellery and eventually went home with a pair of earrings. 

Well almost a year later, VSG has opened up their first brick and mortar location! I was so thrilled to learn that VSG was going to be putting down roots in my little neighbourhood where vintage is the way of life. I stopped by as soon as I could - after I beat the never-ending flu - with my trusty vintage loving friend Heather and we spent an incredible hour looking through each little piece of history. 


Vintage Soul Geek is owned and operated by the lovely Connie and her charming husband Nick. They have curated an incredible collection of pieces from the late 1800's to the 1990's, all of which have obviously been cared for beautifully as they are all in impeccable shape. They have everything from 50's prom dresses and wedding gowns to shaving kits and an x-ray machine. No matter what your specific passion, VSG has something for every vintage lover. It is also the perfect choice for someone who is just breaking into the world of vintage because it takes the idea of vintage shopping - which can sometimes be hectic and overwhelming - and brings it into a quiet boutique setting where pieces are carefully chosen and displayed purposefully. You can take your time perusing the racks and Nick and Connie are happy to help you find the perfect piece for any occasion.

The store itself is a stunning location with original brick walls, high ceilings and plenty of light. It is quiet but filled with energy from the colourful pieces and happy shoppers. Nick and Connie are incredibly knowledgable about everything they have and are happy to share stories and make suggestions. VSG is somewhere that you can come and spend hours getting lost in the racks and chatting about the years gone by. Heather and I did just that and at the end of our visit, Heather found herself trying on  -and taking home - an awesome wool plaid jacket in VSG's back lounge/changing room. 


Vintage Soul Geek is a wonderful addition to the vintage community in Hamilton. They have been a long time staple at markets and events and now they are a permanent fixture that everyone needs to experience. 

Vintage Soul Geek is located at 279 King Street East in Hamilton Ontario or you can shop online at their Etsy store.
