Toronto Vintage Clothing Show and Toronto Antique & Vintage Market
Toronto’s Biggest Vintage Show
Extends Shopping Hours
Saturday March 7 - Sunday March 8
Toronto’s biggest vintage event combines antique and vintage décor along with vintage clothing—a two-day expo that’s every collectors’ dream featuring 125 dedicated vendors who work their back channels to source truly outstanding items. Event hours have been extended to accommodate the GTA’s ravenous demand for everything vintage. It’s now open 10am-6pm on Saturday March 7th and 10am-5pm on Sunday March 8th—an additional hour each day. The Toronto Antique & Vintage Market and the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show are both held at the Queen Elizabeth Building at Exhibition Place Exhibition (180 Princes' Blvd).
The Toronto Antique & Vintage Market is packed with decorator finds—mid-century décor, groovy vinyl records, Scandinavian modernist jewelry and retro barware; Indigenous carvings, antiquarian books, vintage maps and botanicals; housewares, European antiques, artwork, toys, textiles, country kitchen Pyrex, oddities, and much more.
“March is a great time of year for antiquing and vintage-shopping because vendors spend the long winter months stocking up on tons of estate-fresh finds” says Show Manager Catherine Knoll. “If you’ve been thinking about adding an eye-catching vintage element to your house or condo, now would be the time to pounce!”
The Toronto Vintage Clothing Show is the place where visitors can explore fashion styles from the last century that inspire today’s fashion design trends. Partywear, dresses for vintage weddings, leather jackets, eyeglasses and designer vintage; blue jeans, boots and shoes, classic leather handbags, patterns, buttons and notions can all be found on the show floor.
“We love seeing all the smiles as shoppers try on all sorts of diverse and different things from the last century—from vintage streetwear to Chanel handbags!” states Knoll. Since the show is Canada’s largest sale of vintage clothing and accessories, Knoll points out that “It really is a rare chance to access such a vast selection of clothing styles and allows guests to discover their unique personal style".
For many antique and vintage lovers, access to out-of-town vendors prime goods has always been a huge drawing card. The Spring 2020 event is no different as top vendors from Montreal, Ottawa and western Ontario will be exhibiting alongside Toronto sellers at the show.
