Toronto’s newest secondhand retailer has no fixed address because it’s on wheels!

Miser’s Second Hand is a first of its kind push cart in modern day Toronto.

Run by George Max Meanwell (call him Max), the longtime Oakwood and St. Clair-area resident was inspired by his “mother’s, father’s, father who had a push cart on Ossington about a hundred years ago.”

Meanwell got the license a few weeks ago and started selling this week.

The pushcart is stocked with high-quality second hand, vintage, and antiques, and was constructed by Meanwell himself using an old pine table as the structure.

When reached for an interview by Daily Hive, Meanwell shares that his inventory comes mostly from donations. He’ll drive to “collect people’s things as a service to them, sort them for the best items, and deliver the rest of the items to Miss Used, which is an independent thrift store at 1028 St. Clair Avenue West.”

You can find Miser’s at Glenholme and Rogers from Friday through Monday from noon to 6:30 pm. Weather permitting.

“Everything is priced to haggle. Only the lazy, and wealthy need pay the ticket price,” Meanwell said. “My slogan is, ‘Anyone who asks for a deal, gets one’.”
