SUPPLY YOUR HABIT: toronto vintage clothing & textile show & sale

This is one of my favourite vintage sales ever. This used to be conveniently located down the road from me, but I will still truck it out north to score amazing vintage fabric, notions & clothing.


Toronto Vintage Clothing & Textile 17th Annual Show & Sale
Sat. March 1, 10am. to 5 pm.
at The CNIB Conference Centre,
1929 Bayview Ave
28 top quality dealers
Admission $7. Partial proceeds donated to Cancer & M.S. Societies. Formerly at the
Enoch Turner Schoolhouse.

Dear Friends of Vintage:

Once again it is time for the Annual Toronto Vintage Clothing and Textile Show and Sale. This year is our 17th. New for this year is the venue change. We will be at the CNIB Centre with plenty of reasonably priced underground parking @ $6.50 for the day. Arrive on time to get a spot. The cafe within the building will be opened from 11-3pm for your convenience.

This year we have 28 exceptional vendors to showcase their delightful vintage for you.

Looking forward to another year of wonderful treasure finds, something for everyone.

Sincerely, June C. Troy, show promoter

Never posted on here before, but hello!:)

Sounds very enticing. I checked out their website and glanced at the pics from prior years...I get the impression it's more clothes than fabric-fabric? Just wondering if the sale is mostly one than the other, and generally if the pics do justice to what's there? Thanks!

it is a real mix of stuff - fabric, notions (like lace, buttons, spools), some finished textiles like quilts and rugs, and yes - lots of clothes. & accessories. i would say your impression is correct - probably more wearables than sewables.

i don't actually love the images they've chosen for the site - i've scored way more stylish & cute stuff than what's posted, generally.
