Our Story

When I was 17 years old I bought my first piece of vintage clothing.

The rest is history...

CREAM Life + Style was born out of a deep appreciation for all things vintage.  

Growing up in the small northern town of Kitimat, BC there were not a lot of shops that allowed me to dress "outside the box"; not a single thrift store or vintage shop. But I always longed to find a way to express my personal style. Eventually the day came when a thrift shop was opening, and I was beyond excited! 

When I was 17 years old I bought my first piece of vintage clothing.

Hanging in the window of that new thrift store was this gorgeous rust coloured suede jacket with faux fur trim.  I knew she was mine.  So I went there on opening day and bought this gorgeous statement piece.  It turns out it belonged to the mother of the woman who had opened the shop.  She bought it in the 70's and never let it go, until now, until me, and it changed everything....

Over the years my love for the fashion and the rock n' roll counterculture of the late 60's & 70's continued to grow (and so did my collection!), so having my own vintage shop was really only a matter of time.  Not only does shopping vintage ensure items are unique and well made, they also carry incredible stories and past lives, and we love to let items continue on!  

As a local business owner I also firmly believe in supporting other local businesses and artists, and that's why aside from vintage you can always find locally-made and mindfully curated items in our shop.

The Shop

The truth is I've always wanted to have a brick & mortar shop. A place of creation & curation and full creative freedom, so for my 40th birthday the stars aligned and this little shop became mine......
