I love old finds, always have. Every since I was a little girl I loved to play dress-up in my old clothes. It’s funny to think that one day what I now own will be considered vintage.
While purchasing quality vintage isn’t cheap as one may think, the price is worth the find. This past weekend I went to a vintage clothing show in Toronto. Booth upon booth of luxurious furs, hats, * jewelry a wide variety of clothes from the last century. As much I would of loved to have walked away with most of what I saw, I narrowed it down to a sequined shrug and a 1950s white coat. Total cost, $30.
For those of you who are also vintage lovers, the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Sale is back on November 6th at the Chateau Laurier from 10-5 pm. There’s 45 exhibitors from across the country so I suggest getting there at the start for first pick!
