Blue Toque Sports Ltd. is a family and community sports consignment store with a focus on adventure and the simple, healthy, fun things in life. It was established in 2008 by the current owners Paul and Salinas LaPerriere. The sports-oriented Vancouver Island was desperately in need of a place to sell good-quality used gear, giving it a new life while having a justification to buy more gear, and to buy gear at a fraction of the price while being environmentally conscious. So it started. In the first couple months, Blue Toque was a small, grass roots shop. Very quickly it turned into a 5500 sq foot sports warehouse with almost 6000 consignors from all around.
