A Huge Vintage Festival Is Coming To Toronto's West End
Let's get ready to bargain!! 🤑 🤑
If you're an unforgivable procrastinator like us and haven't prepped your Halloween costume yet, then Toronto has the perfect place for you to bargain your way into the perfect #Halloween2017 get up.
Vintage Crawl TO is back for the fall half of its biannual event taking place on October 26th, legit just in the nick of time for your Saturday night Halloween festivities. This expansive vintage clothing and accessories festival includes vendors from across Kensington Market, Queen West, Parkdale, and Dundas West neighbourhoods. And with over 40 participating vendors in this West End crawl, the possibilities for discovering one-of-a-kind vintage staple pieces are endless.
From vintage women's and men's clothing, to accessories, stationery, furniture, and homeware, this festival effectively helps to acquaint you with some of Toronto's most adorable small businesses in the city, and some of the best vintage or repurposed pieces you can find.
In a concerted and admirable effort to promote the eco- and sustainable fashion causes, Vintage Crawl Toronto teams up with small business owners who keep their quaint shops open late for vagabond shoppers like us. The event was founded and hosted by Toronto-based resale store owners, designers, and stylists who began this initiative in 2012 to seemingly great success for both the vintage resale market and city alike.
Some retailers taking part in the event are smaller shops that local might now have visited before, like Dundas West's Chosen Vintage:
Or the racks on racks of denim found at Penny Arcade:
The crawl takes place next Saturday, October 26th from 5 PM to 11 PM. You can check out the event deets and the amazing participating vendors here.
