Normally we are all about colour, and lots of it. But sometimes, a classic look also speaks volumes — much like these stunning vintage metallic dresses, blouses, skirts and shoes. What better way to start the New Year than with a bit of old Hollywood glamour. And, your outfit wouldn’t be complete without some vintage rhinestones and gemstones, topped off with a full length fur to keep you warm.

We have recently acquired another massive collection of vintage clothing and accessories, and again all in accessible sizes. This spectacular collection was purchased from another seasoned vintage collector/dealer with exquisite taste. And, much like our previous acquisition, every single item is in mint condition.
Below are some samples from this collection, as well as from others. You really do need to come in to view all these pieces in person. You will be transported back in time as each and every piece is incredibly unique — oozing with so much flare, colour and style. In particular, the original bell bottom jeans and pants are so wide and fabulous. And, when was the last time you saw a complete men’s brown tuxedo with the matching frilly shirt and vest?
Also…if you still need a costume for Halloween, we can help you find the perfect outfit.
Bohemia Gallery recently acquired a rather spectacular collection of close to 200 vintage cocktail dresses, outfits and accessories; mostly from the 50s and 60s. And, there is more on the way! If ever there was a time to rock the vintage glam style, it is definitely now as there is something for everyone. We also have an amazing selection of vintage and antique jewellery to compliment every style…including some lovely Sherman necklace and earring sets, unique hat pins and even a tiara.
Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance.Burning Man 2022
In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.
Burning Man is back as part of Black Rock City from August 28 to September 5, 2022 in the Nevada desert. The theme this year, according to organizers, “Will explore the transformative power of dreams, both literal and figurative, and celebrate the dreamers who channel this potent energy in eye-opening, often surrealistic, sometimes life-changing ways. Because after all what is Black Rock City if not a collective manifestation of the community’s dreams?”
Whether you plan to go in person, or celebrate your own burning man type festival locally or virtually, Bohemia Gallery has everything you need to flex your creative self-expression and stay warm while knowing that dreams really can come true.
Are you ready, boots? Start walkin’
We have the most amazing selection of authentic cowboy and cowgirl boots in the store…and they are meant for walkin’! If ever you wanted to rock the western look, we’ve got you covered. Not only do we have the boots in a variety of sizes and colours, we also have some well worn western hats, vintage denim, leather jackets and belts, plaid shirts, and so much more.
We are also excited to welcome the New Terrain Crystal Shop upstairs in The Loft. Here you will find a beautiful selection of crystals and related accessories. It is open Saturday and Sunday every weekend 12noon to pm.
And, every once in while we have something unique and interesting…and a bit different from what we normally have in the store. This time it is the coolest mid-century modern Lucite coffee table. Both the top and base are Lucite, making this type of table quite rare.
Summer is coming — we promise! Although some days it seems like we have skipped right past spring and summer in Vancouver and are back in the fall, we know that the brighter and warmer weather is just around the corner. It is just taking a bit longer to arrive this year.
But when it does, it will be glorious. And, if it is anything like last year, it will get hot. So use this time wisely and come and check out our latest stock of vintage and retro summer clothing and accessories. We have everything including floor length vintage floral dresses, fabulous retro one piece bathing suites, plaid shorts, white fedoras, rustic cowboy hats, funky sandals, and of course a huge selection of authentic vintage Hawaiian shirts.
Travelling is back and we are all so excited! Whether you are heading south for some much needed sun or heading out on a world cruise, Bohemia Gallery has you covered with a wide selection of vintage leisure and cruise wear. And of course we also have the perfect accessories to compliment any outfit, for both men and women.
As we head back to work, did you know that vintage work wear is back in vogue for both men and women? And what better way to sashay your way back than in a shiny new-to-you pant suit, a full on red leather outfit, your own version of the rhinestone cowboy or even a full-length colourful caftan.
Not sure if you have noticed, but at Bohemia Gallery we LOVE colour. Sure, we a have wide variety of styles and eras of vintage and retro items on display throughout the store…and every now and then we will feature some of those slightly less vibrant pieces…but with spring just around the corner we just couldn’t help ourselves. Whether you want colour in the kitchen, colour in your closet or colour all through the house…you can never go wrong by colouring outside of the lines (despite what they may have told you in kindergarten).
