The Toronto Antique & Vintage Market and The Toronto Vintage Clothing Show

Neighbourhood | Written on March 3, 2016

We’re going back in time, and, with this incredible event, there’s every guarantee that we’re going to look really incredible when we do. Liberty Village, prepare for another fun show in our area! The Toronto Antique and Vintage Market and the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show are here and there’ll be a wide selection of unique clothing, accessories, furniture, antiques and more to explore & purchase.

Yes, Canada’s largest vintage markets are now taking place at the same time, at the same venue! And that venue is less than a 10-minute walk from Liberty Central By The Lake Two in Liberty Village. You have to admit, even at the height of winter, that still translates to a world of convenience.

Entrance to the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show is included in the price of admission to the Toronto Antique & Vintage Market—you really should think of this as one large and incredible antique and vintage event. Entry is $10 (cash) and cash is also strongly encouraged for persons planning to shop. There will be ATMs on site and some vendors will be accepting VISA credit cards but ATM lines have been known to be quite long and not all vendors will accept payment by credit card.

And if you thought that these facts have already made this event the peak of vintage coolness, hang on, there’s even more! There are also discount passes available! Submit your contact details here for your discount pass to a world of vintage awesomeness.
