The Pop-Up Consignment Shop is an awesome, FREE, one-day event where you can buy your perfect wedding dress or décor, from local Calgary women who have consigned, donated or are selling their gorgeous gently used items leftover from their own weddings. Proceeds from this event will go directly to the Women In Need Society (WINS), supporting Calgary women and their families. No wedding dress will be priced over $500!
Can’t afford to buy a wedding dress or know a worthy Bride-in-Need? Our Can’t Buy Me Love Project is accepting nominations for worthy Brides-in-Need to receive one of our amazing donated wedding dresses. Lucky nominees will attend an event after hours and experience a fabulous bridal gown shopping experience!
Visit our curated Vendor Marketplace where local Calgary vendors will be sharing their products and services available for you to purchase!
There will be a silent auction, door prizes and an amazing swag bag for the first 50 people through the door!

At the core of every Pop-Up Consignment Shop event is our desire to give back to those in our community. Whether it’s through wedding dress donations in support of our Can’t Buy Me Love Project, donations-in-kind by bringing clothing and shoes to support our local women’s charity or donating cash directly to the charity’s website, your generosity is greatly appreciated! Every woman deserves to feel valued and beautiful and loved and your contribution through these Pop-Up events goes a long way.
