Mantiques: Barrie’s Retro Hotspot



Taking a walk through Mantiques is like taking a walk through time.

Every corner of the sprawling store is packed with eye catching trinkets and memorabilia from ages gone by.

Here you can find old school clothes and furniture. Victorian age plates and silverware. Vintage vinyl and audio equipment.

Hobbyists, history enthusiasts and antique magpies will love sifting through these treasure troves of nostalgic wares—particularly if on a gift buying quest for the geek inclined.

An entire section of Mantiques caters to movies, TV and merch; toys and figures, comics and shirts emblazoned with the logos of pop culture’s past.


Whether you just want to drop a few bucks on an intriguing knick-knack, or find vintage home accessories to spruce up your place, this shop has lots to choose from.

And if you pay in cash, they’ll cover your taxes!

You’ll find Mantiques at 56 Dunlop St. W, and you can learn out more about the store here. And check out the latest episode of Cinema Smackdown, recorded here!
