1 Margeurite Necklace From Cheryl Doucette's Kokopelligirl Etsy site, this necklace with glass flowers on a silver chain is just one of the many handmade creations available. $19 USD on the Kokopelligirl Etsy site, etsy.com/shop/kokopelligirl

2 Clutch Culture Zippered Pouch A rad local line with rad local accessories, consider this army green- and black-printed pouch, one of many different colours and designs available. $45, clutchculture.com/store

3 Green Silk and Cotton Dress Lena Kroeker was a real standout at Atlantic Fashion Week. This dress was made from pieced silk and cotton, a one-off with a retail price that is lost in time. lenakroeker.tumblr.com

4 Mil-Spex Combat Pants Remember, repurposing military gear is a tradition going back to the counterculture '60s and the punk-aggro '70s. Embrace peace and go camo! $40, The Army Navy Store, 2660 Agricola Street, 454-4330

5 Antique Brooches Antique stores are good places to find lamps, couches, silverware and stereo components, but in certain places you might find cool jewellery, such as these items in a room at Finer Things on the corner of Almon and Agricola. $22-$36, Finer Things, 2797 Agricola Street, 456-1412
