About us. Thrill of the Find is a women's clothing store specializing in new to vintage designer fashions. Lifelong collector Mireille Watson finally opened the doors to Thrill of the Find in 2003. Located in Toronto's Leslieville district the store has already attracted a loyal following who have discovered some of the best in European designer clothing Toronto has to offer. With well priced, immaculately presented and low key helpful and knowledgeable service, it is no wonder this boutique is no longer one of the city’s best kept secrets.
