About Us

Blue-Toque-ski-wallBlue Toque is Courtenay’s best and only used sporting goods consignment store.

We take the work out of selling your sports and outdoor gear. With a huge selection of sports equipment, both new and used, you can be sure there will be something that you are looking for in our store.

With new gear coming in daily, our stock is constantly changing. So whether you are looking to clean out your basement of used gear or need new skates and hockey gear for your kids, Blue Toque is the place to shop.

Who are we?

Blue Toque began in 2008 by Paul and Salinas Laperriere. Their idea was to bring an affordable option to buy sporting goods for local Vancouver Island residents. The concept was based on other sports consignment stores in BC but with a homegrown feel that is truly Vancouver Island.

As the store has grown, not only the amount of high quality used gear has increased, but also the partnership with gear wholesalers has made Blue Toque the place to shop for new outdoor clothing and active wear from some of the best known brands in the industry.

One of the coolest things about Blue Toque is the collections of local memorablia and collector items of skateboards, snowboards, waterskis and even an old 2 person chairlift from former Forbidden Plateau Ski Hill. Come and have a look around and say hi!
