About shopamieamie

Sales 2,085
On Etsy since 2016

What is amie amie?

amie amie (pronounced ah-mee ah-mee) means friend friend (feminized) in French

We are a queer, woman-owned small business based in Mile End, Montreal and have been operating since 2018. We believe the answer to excessive consumption and the fast-fashion cycle rests in ethical business models, reusing what already exists and what has been produced close to home.

Our accessories are made in our very own studio using locally sourced, quality materials. Each tote bag is meticulously designed, cut and sewn by us.

Our selection of vintage focuses on Canadian-made 90s clothing, durable fabrics, minimalist shapes and styles, boxy classics, vintage denim, and anything else that makes us feel nostalgic.

◐ Sizing and Measurements
We sometimes use the binary terms "men" and "women" in our sizing in an effort to give a clear description of the garment. According to the way clothes are made, sizing equivalencies are typically: men's small / women's medium; men's medium / women's large; men's large / women's XL, etc. We do not mean for this to be an indication of who we think should wear those clothes. Everyone should wear whatever they want no matter where they are on the gender spectrum.

We do our best to measure each item carefully and to estimate what the contemporary sizing equivalent would be. If you're unsure about sizing info, let us know: we can help!

How items are measured (FLAT):

Tops
Shoulders: shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Chest: straight across under the arms from pit to pit
Waist: smallest part of the mid section
Bottom of top: straight across bottom
Length: midway between the collar and shoulder seam, straight down to bottom hem

Bottoms
Waist: straight across the top of the pants
Hips: measured at bottom of zip or button fly
Inseam: crotch seam, down through the inside of the leg
Rise: crotch seam up the middle to the top of the waistband

Cleaning and Laundering
All items are either machine or hand washed and/ or steam cleaned. On some occasions, delicate items get dry cleaned.

Condition
Your should expect your new amie amie piece to be in good to excellent, wearable condition. We do our very best to represent the pieces as truthfully and realistically as possible, carefully listing any noticeable flaws. Everything in the shop, unless otherwise stated, is previously worn and will, naturally, show some minor signs of wear.

Garment Colour
We aim to accurately represent the colours of garments through the photos and written descriptions. However, we cannot guarantee that the true colours of the garments will be the same as what you see on your device.

Durability
Every piece is double checked for quality and durability, but we still cannot guarantee them due to their vintage condition. If ever there is an issue, please don't hesitate to send us a message. We strive to give every customer a positive and happy experience.

Frequently asked questions
PRICING: Are prices negotiable? Do you give discounts or deals if I buy multiple items?

Sometimes prices are negotiable, but this is entirely at our discretion (being polite helps!). We usually won't give discounts on items that have been recently listed unless the customer is buying multiple items. However, returning and regular customers always receive special discounts.

STUDIO VISITS: I live in Montreal. Can I try the item on before I buy it?

Absolutely! Please contact us if you'd like to come by our Mile End studio to try something on before purchasing it.

Once you have purchased an item from us at the studio, if for some reason you aren't happy with the fit, you have one week to return it and get in-store credit for the full price, minus a $5 restocking fee. This applies to clothes and shoes only. All accessories are final sale. Please note that this is a service offered only to our Montreal customers.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Do you ship outside of Canada and the U.S.?

We are not currently shipping outside of the US and Canada.

SHIPPING UPGRADES: Do you offer shipping upgrades? I need my order ASAP!

Of course! Shipping upgrades are available for those who need their items FAST!
Depending on how quickly you need your item, and if it's possible for us to do so, we can send packages via FedEx Priority, or Priority International which are guaranteed to arrive the next morning by 10:30 AM.
Please be advised - it ain't cheap! Send us a message as soon as you can and we'll send you a quote. We will also add an extra $10 CAD handling fee for FedEx upgrades.
