Hideout Distro is a magical shop located in Vacancy Hall (a collective of studio spaces in the basement of the Mercer building) in Edmonton. Tory Culen, owner of Hideout and maker of Karma Victoria jewelry, wanted to create a space that promoted other independent designers and thus the shop came to exist.
The store is stacked full of both local and international talent from prints, patches, pins, jewelry, fragrances, pottery, leather goods, t shirts, and records not to mention an epic vintage section from the now defunct Local Gifts (RIP). With its clubhouse like feel, it’s easy to wander down 104th street to Transcend for a coffee and go curl up in Tory’s velvet armchair for the duration of the afternoon. It’s cozy and welcoming.
You can find Hideout Distro at:
