Do you have your own fashion style? Do you like to wear what no one else is wearing? Do people describe your look as uniquely original?

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, Gadsden’s Toronto Vintage Clothing Show might help you add some vintage clothes to your selective wardrobe. This year’s event takes place on April 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Artscape Wychwood Barns (601 Christie St., Toronto ON).

While many of us might not know about it, the Clothing Show is highly anticipated on the vintage scene.
