About

Funny retro stuff on great fabric.

Hi there,

Lisa here. I'm a Toronto-based designer of super fun t-shirts, napkins, tea towels and pillows (though I was an amateur comic for a few years, and once even "ran" a snack trolley in a Bingo Hall. Long story.)

My designs are funny, sweet and really well made. The t-shirts are manufactured right here in Scarborough from delicious bamboo. As much as I can, I source my materials locally and up-cycle vintage fabric whenever I can.

I started this business four years ago (first incarnation: Coy Clothes). It was born out of the need to create funny shirts that weren't marketed to 20-year-olds. No offense to the un-wrinkled, I just found when it came to fit, comfort and humour the 30-plus market was left out.

In four years, I've changed the name: Depot more closely fits the general store vibe I want to create and I've added two people to my crew: Charlotte and Grace. They do the bulk of the sewing and are outstanding at their craft. I still do some of the sewing and handle all the silk-screening and re-write all the copy for the retro ads and come up with new stuff to make.

I'm constantly scouring the Internet, thrift stores, garage sales and flea markets in search of all things retro, vintage, ironic, sweet and bizarre for inspiration.

When I'm not working, I'm hanging with my two kids, my husband and my pug Curly dreaming of my next "Thursday Night Snack Plate."



Adios,



Lisa

    I can't think of anything better than old, sweet, pretty, weird things. I love the illustration style of vintage advertising and it's a total thrill to write new copy for it. It's an even bigger thrill dream up new things to silk screen and sew.

Returns and exchanges
First, I want you to be happy with your purchase. I strive to bring my shop to you through the pictures and descriptions. But, if it just isn't right, I will refund the cost of the item and original shipping -- you'll just need to pay the shipping to get it back to me.

Custom orders are non-refundable.
Payment
You need to pay so I can ship.

PLEASE PAY ONLY WITH PAYPAL. If you can not pay immediately, or are having problems with the checkout system, then let me know immediately and I'll sort it out as soon as possible.

All purchases must be paid in full within 48 hours or they'll be cancelled.

Don't have paypal? You can pay with your debit or credit card:
Choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.
Shipping
I ship by surface mail. It takes about 5-10 business days to get to most places in the US and Canada. I can ship by air, but it becomes much more expensive. Single, adult shirts can be packaged in a bubble-pack envelope. I'm happy to squish two in if you don't mind the wrinkles. Cards, kids and baby shirts will also fit in regular size bubble envelopes. This is often faster than small package shipping.

I ship the day of or day after I receive payment from PayPal.
