Mine & Yours South Granville Holiday Pop-Up
Premier luxury resale boutique Mine & Yours has just “popped up” on South Granville – Vancouver’s outdoor shopping home to the greatest variety of fashion, dining, lifestyle, and and fine art in the city.
Mine & Yours, a designer fashion resale store with a permanent location at 1062 Hornby Street, has “popped up” at 3012 South Granville, alongside boutiques like Boboli, Bacci’s and Misch, and chain stores like Free People, James Perse, and American Apparel.

The pop-up, which is partnering with local brands like Vitruvi Luxury Aromatheraphy, Aunts and Uncles, and Sutie Skirts, will run from now until December 23. A special “Holiday Extravaganza One-Stop Pop-up Shop” will be held during the last shopping weekend before Christmas (December 18 – 20th) to entertain South Granville shoppers with wine & good cheer, while they shop an array of local brands all under one roof.
Mine & Yours sells new and “almost new” on-trend designer and luxury women’s fashion and accessories. The business has thrived since opening its Hornby Street location in October 2013 – with Vancouver women embracing its unique buy-sell-trade business model that encourages them to “recycle” their designer and luxury clothing without breaking the bank or the environment. Unlike consignment (where you wait for your clothes to sell), the store offers cash up-front for select designer items, or store trading credit. Clothing is resold at up to 80% off original retail prices.
Company Founder Jigme Love says, “Our goal was to create a ‘communal girlfriend’s closet’ where women could come buy, sell and trade designer and luxury items.”
Company owners Jigme Love & Courtney Watkins specialize in buying, selling, and trading “almost-new” luxury goods.
The South Granville pop-up shop is a fun injection to the eclectic, luxurious sampling of shops, restaurants and cafes already on the street, which is host to some of the city’s most discerning shoppers.
Pop-up shops are retail stores with a temporary presence, ranging from a weekend to a number of months. “Popping up” enables businesses to extend their market reach, grow sales, build brand awareness, and breathe new life into an otherwise vacant location. Mine & Yours’ pop-up shop represents a novel addition to South Granville and will benefit from the exposure of its prime retail location, as well as the bustling holiday season.
Company Partner Courtney Watkins says, “It’s an honour to be the first independent pop-up retailer on South Granville and we intend to make the absolute most of our time there. Many of our valued suppliers shop at Boboli, Bacci’s and Misch, so it’s really exciting to be right on the street where our suppliers shop”.
