"Mid" Main--Main Street from 20th to 22nd Avenue--is one of Vancouver's premiere shopping districts. While the area does include antique and consignment stores, the real reason to visit is the fashion: Mid Main boutiques are home to some of the best independent Canadian and local fashion in the city.
Stylish and fashion-forward, these boutiques offer fashion-lovers a chance to buy unique clothes and accessories while supporting local and independent designers. The only other area in Vancouver with as high a concentration of local design talent is Gastown, but Gastown's prices are much higher. Mid Main is extremely affordable: the clothes are gorgeous and--usually--a true steal.
