Create your own Valentine’s Day card, a simple and practical way to say how you feel.

A gift inside a gift. How’s this for a decorating idea? A delicacy with a little jewel hidden inside.

With just a pencil and string, turn an ordinary cotton bag into a Valentine’s Day gift made with love. Trace the outline of the hearts with a pencil and then embroider the hearts with coloured thread. 😊


When you buy second-hand, you are helping the environment and also helping thousands of people get back into the workforce. Make somebody happy and be a responsible consumer at the same time. Our thrift stores, boutiques and bookstores are teeming with items looking for a new home!


From February 7 to 14, soon go to our Instagram page to enter our #ValentinesDay contest. You could win one of two $25 Renaissance gift cards. Read the contest rules.

It’s easy to enter: follow our page, add a comment under the contest post describing your plans for Valentine’s Day (“nothing” and “finish off a tub of ice cream” are perfectly acceptable answers) and tag your partner or your single friends.


From February 7 to 14, our Privileged clients will receive double points on their first purchase of $30 or more at a thrift store or boutique, or of $20 or more at the bookstore. If you don’t have your “Trésors” card yet, ask for it at the cash before paying. Happy shopping!
