Vintage Show Report

On Sunday I attended the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show at the Queen Elizabeth Building at the CNE. There were tons of vendors with really great finds.

IMG_1282I found that jewellery and handbags had a large share of the show floor. One booth in particular had an large selection of brooches. The vendor mentioned it took her 6 hours to set up the display. Vintage pins are a huge trend for Fall.

This vendor also had a huge selection of necklaces, bracelets and rings. They also had $5 craft bags jammed full with stuff.

My favourite piece was this Moschino dress. Perfect for a holiday party or date night.

IMG_1284Handbags were definitely the find of the day. My friend and I both got great deals on vintage bags. We spoke to one vendor who had very fine leather and skin bags from Italy. IMG_1285She cleans all bags inside and out and makes any repairs before they are part of the collection for sale. The selection of Gucci, Fendi, Prada was wide and hard to choose a favourite. Prices ranged from $150-350. Most styles were from the 1980s and 1990s.

THE HAUL

Black suede with gold detailed Paloma Picasso small handbag. This bag was a great buy at $30 and it was also in perfect condition.

Black Fendi mini Knapsack. The straps of this bag identify it as 1990s when Fendi used this logo. $45.
