EXCELLENT customer service :) while the jacket doesn’t fit, I LOVE the pants and can’t wait to wear them for my event. Just for the pants alone it was worth it. Thank you for the fast shipping and friendly conversations!

I finally took this beautiful silk scarf by a pioneer of modern inuit art, Kenojuak, out of storage. This rare and beautiful accessory would look so beautiful framed.

This is 1/2 of my workspace currently. I'm moving and don't have a proper desk or storage space for ALL my stock. So that's my printer on the floor.
Soon I will have an entire space dedicated to vintage and it will be glorious!

About

Fill your closet and surround yourself with authentic quality vintage and nostalgic style.

Lady Arkenstone brings you quality timeless vintage garments and accessories creatively curated from Canada's capital city, Ottawa

How it all began
I began thrifting at a very young age and was taught by my mother how to find quality clothing with classic styling out of necessity. As I grew so did the thrill of the hint and my love for quality timeless vintage pieces. My diverse style has been fostered by the catch all clothing racks at tiny thrift shops in small towns, flea market booths and garage sales. I also source a lot of my vintage from personal collections that have been meticulously cared for.

Why vintage?
Its not just "stuff" or "old clothes" or "junk"
Its Adventure, History, Scandal, Mystery, Attitude, Style, Sentiment, Revolution, Celebration, Freedom and environmental. I could go on and on.

Above all Vintage is Ethical, when you purchase from a vintage dealer you are making their dreams come true and diverting your dollars away from huge companies that only care about profits and exploit the labor of marginalized people globally and impact the environment negatively.

Thank you for choosing to by pre-loved. Every little bit helps and even just 2 purchases a year will make a difference.

I spend a lot of time searching, laundering, repairing and photographing each vintage piece I offer, to ensure the value of your dollar is well spent and you will be able to enjoy your purchase for years to come.

OTTAWA RESIDENTS: Please message me before or after you order to discuss delivery options.


Thanks for visiting! I care deeply about each vintage piece I curate and about the folks they end up with. I hope you find something you love.

The name:
Lady Arkenstone

I felt like the name for my business had to have some deep cultural meaning (even if it was fictional) and represent the parts of our identities that make us feel like Kings or Queens of our own mountains. I love The Hobbit and that's what the Arkenstone in The Hobbit means to me. It is the Kings Jewel, it is The Heart of the Mountain. It is what so purely represents the Dwarves identities. They live and die to discover and protect it. That is how I feel about vintage, there are so many vintage pieces that deserve protecting, so many style choices and stories to each garment and collection. It is so important to keep that alive, to honor it and share nit with future generations.
