. . . a grain of truth in a husk of hoax
. . . a cover that promises a fascinating read
. . . a daydream that lasts all day long + then some
. . . a clue to you in another universe
. . . a visitor from another dimension of you
. . . an allusion to an illusion
. . . a roadtrip on an inner highway
. . . a breathe of fresh air in a close room
. . . a color that color forgot
. . . an echo from unexplored depths
. . . an essence in the guise of a façade
. . . a fiction that rings tried + true
. . . a glow on loan from the distant horizon
. . . a figment of your imagination’s imagination
. . . a figment of a figment's imagination
. . . a ghost of a second chance

About

Rescuing verified vintage gems from cruel oblivion 1 fabulous fun-derful easily findable piece at a time!

Did you ever in your various travels in preownia come across something so great that it knocked yer socks off? And you thought, This is too good to be true + CERTAINLY too good to be THROUGH? And you thought that it was just WRONG that anyone could ever have parted with it?

This is me when I find high-achieving vintage wearables that perfectly capture a bygone style-itude or offer a tantalizing glimpse of a different way of proceeding. And I just keep finding great vintage stuff! I ALWAYS get really jazzed about it. Every time. It fuels my imagination + gets the idea engine firing at capacity. I love when I find great style, great construction + great thinking. I HATE to leave all the greatness that's out of my personal size + style range to languish unloved + under-appreciated. Cuz then I think, Someone somewhere would LOVE this!

That's where Threadgames comes in. I know you're out there, you other greatness lovers, who get jazzed about ideas from distant horizons + who like to garmentertain themselves daily. I'm doing my bit to represent local Vancouver vintage cred + to bring you that special piece that makes you feel the love, that you never knew you always wanted, that has been waiting patiently for you to magically find it. What are the chances? Pretty good around here. Happy accidents, 24 - 7, just 4 U.

Owning + enjoying even a single vintage piece you love can take a big bite out of same ol'-itis. It's a means to express your unique POV + an opportunity to ascribe your OWN values. Plus it's just a lot more fun. And with every piece added, the fun only grows.

In most places on the planet, you HAVE to get dressed.
Why not have some fun in the process?
Have more fun, BE more fun.
