Larkspur & TVCS

DSC_0707

I’m not sure how to express the amazing time I had at The Toronto Vintage Clothing Show. This will now be the fourth vintage market I have done this year. I forget to sit down sometimes and appreciate how much I (and of course Meg, when she was still involved) have done in less than a year with the shop. There is so much more I would like to do, but it’s a decent start.

Anyways! The show! I met so many wonderful people, customers and vendors alike. I am a pretty shy person, but when I’m at my booth, it’s like my discomfort totally dissipates. Getting to talk vintage with people, and sharing the things I love, well it’s a feeling quite like dancing for me. The time flies by, and before you know it, you weren’t quite sure what happened, but you’re left with a warm feeling inside.

It felt like a breath of fresh air when we arrived at 6:30am to load in, and everything was totally organized. I didn’t have to ask a single question. If you have ever participated in a flea market etc., you know what I’m talking about. You can sometimes feel totally overwhelmed by the disorganization. This was not the case here. I have nothing but good things to say about this event, and it’s organizers/staff! Thank you 1 million times!

I unfortunately didn’t get to check out many booths. I was by myself most of the day, peeing wasn’t even really an option, so you can imagine sifting through racks of vintage was not going to happen. However, I did spot a coat that I fell so totally in love with, and ended up buying it at the very end of the day. Now I’m just anticipating colder weather (what!!??) so I can start wearing this baby gem.

      It really is a great time!
      The first two, both were organized by friends of mine, so they asked me to be a part of it. After that, I applied to sell at a flea market in my neighbourhood and was accepted. And for this last one, the organizer found my shop on etsy and contacted me to be a part of TVCS.
      It’s been a lot of good luck, and just keeping an eye out for fleas/markets in my city or nearby cities. 🙂

      they’re pretty great eh!? They didn’t end up selling. Im planning on listing a bunch of the shoes and purses that I brought with me that day! If you’re interested in those lovely babies, keep an eye on the shop, or shoot me a message!
