Larkspur & Spring TVCS

DSC_1682Last Sunday I had such a great time at the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show. This time around Meaghan helped me out and spent most of the day with me, which I am so grateful for. It can be a really exhausting event when you’re by yourself all day. I’m going to keep this short today because I need to head out real soon, but I want to say a big thank you to the organizer Catherine, the show would not be such a success without her. Thank you to all the people who came by and supported my small business. And thank you to Meaghan and Ryan for all your help, as usual! It’s Friday, and I have the day off tomorrow which I am so looking forward to. Just got to get through this long day of work and dance rehearsals. Happy weekend all!

I talked a little about my experience last Fall at the show, if you are interested.

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.
