We’re Moving! 1650 Pandora St, Vancouver

After a great deal of back and forth with the city of Surrey, we have to relocate. Our current location is not zoned for our business and the city will not issue us a business license.

However, this has given us an AMAZING OPPORTUNITY to move to a larger, brighter space.

Our new location will be 1650 Pandora St, Vancouver, BC.

We will be re-branding as Pandora Prop and Costume, expanding our offerings to include Props and Theatrical Make-Up. The larger space will also allow us to offer co-working / workbench sharing and project storage.

Existing clients will receive discounts on new rentals (still finalizing the program).

We’re very excited to continue to work with Schools and Community Theatres, expanding our Packages to include props. Also, for Schools who are unable to come to the new location due to distance, we’re able to offer delivery! Send us your information (Production Name, Script, Theme/Design Ideas, Cast sizes) we will pull a selection of Costumes and Props AND deliver them to your School to do a fitting at your convenience.

We will be hosting a SALE of Costumes, Props, Accessories, and more in AUGUST 2021.
Stay tuned for more details.

Love,
Anne, Angeline, Bree & Ian.

Are you open for rentals?
The Surrey location is NOT open. However, if you email us at thecostumebankyvr@gmail.com we can make arrangements for your rental to be handled out of our Vancouver space (1650 Pandora St, Vancouver BC)

What are you selling?
Older costumes that we are planning to replace or items we have in excess. Rene acquired a massive inventory and we are curating with love to maintain as much of her collection as we can while making space to expand.

Why move ALL THE WAY to Vancouver?
We looked at a number of spaces, New West, Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Vancouver. We were able to get the most floorspace at the best price. It’s transit accessible and there’s lots of parking. As much as we wish we could have stayed in Surrey, it just wasn’t meant to be.

My School Group can’t get to Vancouver, can I still rent from you?
Yes! Send us your information (Production Name, Script, Theme/Design Ideas, Cast sizes). We will pull a selection of Costumes and Props AND deliver them to your School to do a fitting at your convenience.
