We will be setting up at The Ontario Vintage Market
Sunday June 18, 2023 from 10 AM to 4 PM.
Evergreen Brick Works 550 Bayview Ave, Toronto

If you have never been, it is a beautiful spot. This will be a rustic version of Eclectisaurus with a few last minute gifts for discerning Dads and a good selection of silver, antique and costume jewellery.

There are approximately 30 other vintage dealers alongside the Ontario Artisan Market with 30 additional craft, food and beverage vendors.

All in all - a pleasant way to spend a Sunday.

The free Evergreen Brick Works shuttle bus departs every 30–45 minutes from the parkette on Erindale Ave, east of Broadview Ave (just north of Broadview subway station).
