Ragtime: Vintage in Ottawa

Another quick post for you all before I have a quick nap and head off to the venue for our show tonight. Contrary to my plans of going to several shops in the city I only managed to go to one today. Partially in an effort to keep my money in my wallet! haha!

I went to Ragtime. It was a half hour walk from my hotel in downtown Ottawa and very easy to find (thank you Google Maps!).

I knew I was home as soon as I stepped inside. That familiar vintage shop smell hit me and I was in heaven! The shop is jam packed with stuff to look at. I felt overwhelmed! It reminded me so very much of our famous shop in Winnipeg where I used to work: Ragpickers. Ragtime even rents costumes! So, like Ragpickers, much of the delectable vintage was for rent only.

Nonetheless I did manage to find two special dresses. Here are the shots in the dressing room at Ragtime:

And here they are in my hotel room, you can see the true colours (anyone else start singing Cyndi Lauper just now? I did.) better in this photo:

I have so much more to say, but just don't have time at the moment. I missed my family so much today and am glad I go home in two day.


P.S. Did you watch the Royal Wedding this morning? I did! Kate looked lovely. Kinda like a modern Grace Kelly. *Sigh*


  1. Simply gorgeous! Great finds:)
    Funny how the names of the stores are so similar.
    The wedding was so beautiful and the dress was gorgeous. You're right the dress had a very vintage/classic feel. So lovely.

  2. Love both of the dresses you found. The floral dress is amazing!!!

    And Kate did look so elegant and beautiful for the wedding!
