“One of the best furniture stores you've never heard of!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

I love shopping for items which are unique, one of a kind, or have some interesting story behind them. Just happened to come across the shop and met the owner and both my wife and I have to say that his passion for the business was incredible. The enthusiasm was infectious and the service was amazing. They've definitely got a customer for life in me!

“Terrific funky store with lots of treasures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

I bought 4 metal retor reproductions chairs for my dining room and they are awesome! Christos presented me with lots of options and made ordering and delivery simple. It's a wonderul store with lots of treasures for your home and office and what's really great is the constantly changing stock with finds the owners locate that are unique and usually great conversation pieces.

“Simply the best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012 via mobile

Living in Vancouver it's easy to find antiques, but the best I found is in Victoria. Trade Roots is a must see if you're in the area. Plus, the delivers to my door on the mainland with no problems. The store has a wide variety of antiques of all sizes from old factory carts and map desks to tobacco tins and army tent pillows! I also loved the support they give local artisans. Trade Roots is always at the top of my list when searching for unique finds for the house. A true class act.

“attention to detail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

a place for those who have an intense appreciation for industrial design and the quality of construction found only in the days of old;
nothing cookie-cutter, flat-pack IKEA to be seen here.. strictly one of a kind vintage goods that lend charm and sophistication to any home interior.
Artfully rendered, retro-inspired Industrial furnishings abound: both the authentically repurposed and the contemporary reproduction.
the locus of all things cool, this place is the sole resource for Vintage Industrial furnishings and design in Victoria.
Owners Christos and Carla are at the vanguard of the movement, and their pluck and forsight has brought us Trade Roots.
Stop by to see an original, and experience something else from a time gone by: exceptional customer service.
