Here's the link: http://torontoartscape.org/artscape-wychwood-barns (damn, once again I am reminded that I have not figured out how to get the links to hyperlink for you!!!) The info and photos and videos of the history and development of this once industrial space into a community centre for the arts makes me smile. This is what people can do!!! Check it out for sure.
Here's the link for the vintage sale too. http://antiqueshowscanada.com/gadsdens-toronto-vintage-clothing-show-fall/. The next sale is in April , 2013 I believe.
You aren't exhausted just thinking about going (like how I feel about going to the One of a Kind sale!!!) You can have a good snoop in a few hours and still have time to chat with the friendly vendors and customers. The quality is high and is priced accordingly but there is always a treasure or two to be found at your price point!! Last year I found an extraordinary linen tea towel with each month represented by a dance from around the world. Of course, you can imagine the squeeee I emitted when one of the months was flamenco. This year I found two adorable brooches that I could not leave behind. I must admit though, the reason I was so looking forward to going this year, was just to be back in the space...it is energizing inside and out. Cool neighbourhood as well.
