A revival is sweeping across the West Kootenay. The movement has migrated from Rossland to Castlegar, taking unique vintage garments along with it. 

“We had a very successful business in Rossland and we outgrew our space,” said Zabrina Nelson, owner of Revival Boutique. “We looked for a bigger space in Rossland and had no luck so we decided to move to Castlegar as it was central to everyone shopping with us.”

As for what clothing can be found within Revival Boutique, the store’s motto sums it up, “Any age, any style, you will find something you love at Revival Boutique.”

“People love that we carry quality used clothing for men and women,” Nelson said. “Men love to find a great deal on their favourite brands just as much as woman do!”

Aside from providing the West Kootenay with all kinds of eclectic clothing options, Revival Boutique prioritizes recycling for the benefit of the community.

“We take extra clothing to local artists and they upcycle it into purses, wallets, stuffed animals etc.,” Nelson said. “If we learn of a family in need, we let them sort through clothing and take what they need free of charge.”
