Toronto’s second-hand pushcart is setting up shop in a new neighbourhood

Miser’s second-hand pushcart is setting up shop somewhere new this spring.

The pushcart retailing second-hand things is run by George Max Meanwell (call him Max) and was inspired by his “mother’s, father’s, father who had a pushcart on Ossington about a hundred years ago.”

Stocked with high-quality second hand, vintage, and antiques and constructed by Meanwell himself, the pushcart has become somewhat of a moving target in the Oakwood and St. Clair area since launching last spring.

Starting spring 2018, the pushcart can be found in Wychwood Village on the weekends – conveniently coinciding with The Stop Saturday farmers’ market. “Come on by if vintage is your thing” invites Meanwell in his latest update to Daily Hive.

“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.”
