Attention fashionistas, it’s that special time again. That’s right—F as in Frank is having their annual $10 Fill a Bag Sale this Saturday.
For those who need a refresher, the vintage clothing store offers customers $10 bio-degradable bags to stuff with as much product as possible (without ripping the bag, of course). If that’s not enough, everything in the store is an additional 40% off. As the world’s largest supplier of vintage deadstock snapback hats, along with having a massive selection of rare finds that span across a wide range of eras, F as in Frank is one of Vancouver’s best thrift shops and the sale is an occasion very much anticipated.
Last year’s event was so successful that lineups of thousands of people stretched for blocks, unfortunately leaving some waiting for hours without getting the chance to even browse the stock. To ensure that things move as efficiently as possible and that everyone has a fair opportunity to get inside, the F as in Frank team have made a few adjustments this time around.
For starters, the venue has moved. Instead of being held onsite at the store, the sale will now run at 215 East 17th Avenue, at Main Street. If the lineups exceed expectations again, there will be a limit on bags per person, rather than the usual unlimited.
And though it’s important to note that the line may well be considerable, F as in Frank promise to do their best to make it bearable with their famous BBQ. The grill—with free hot dogs—will be in full force. Some things should never change.
Where: Cambrian Welsh Society Hall – 215 East 17th Avenue, Vancouver (at Main Street)
Time: Saturday, January 31 at 10 a.m. until everything is gone
Price: $10 per bag
