- Our Story -


It all began with my love for shopping and passion for playing with clothes and accessories.

At the age of 23 I opened my first Turnabout store on South Granville. From the beginning the fun concept of ‘turning about’ your wardrobe was an instant success. Our fresh approach and enthusiasm drew customers and captured media attention from national and local TV, radio and print. Turnabout fast became the leader in quality resale with amazing clients consigning beautiful clothing & accessories and the best in high end labels. New retail shops began consigning ends of season and today we have shops from all over that ship us clearance stock.

Today with six spacious stores. I’m still fascinated with the diversity, talent and accomplishments of our consignors. It's a privilege to serve our clients and I take great pride in the honest service we provide. It’s important for customers to trust our expertise, authenticity, pricing, and for consignors to have confidence in our accounting. Turnabout is thriving and growing because we do the job right!

If it’s time for you to ‘Turnabout’, my staff and I look forward to meeting you and your wonderful wardrobe!


With warm regards,
