Thrill of the Find, a clothing boutique in Toronto's east end specializing in women's designer wear, has closed its doors after 15 years.

The shop curated a variety of high-quality women's fashion labels and accessories — both vintage and contemporary — not on consignment, but from the owner's personal collection. 

Mireille Watson sourced her immaculate pieces — some finds dating back to the 1930s — mostly from Europe. 

Thrill of the Find's popular window displays often featured spectacular discoveries for passersby. A 1950s cocktail dress, for instance, or a rare vintage piece from Hermès, Chanel or Prada. 

A note in the window thanks its customers and mentions a move to Port Hope — a short trip away for anyone looking for their next vintage showpiece.
