About VCTO


Vintage Crawl Toronto happens twice a year, and helps connect shoppers to the stores and small business owners in their neighbourhoods. For the event, stores on the crawl stay open late,  and host special sales, events and attractions to lend the night a fun, party atmosphere. Each store is open to the public and there is no cost to attend. Crawlers are invited to pick a neighbourhood and hit as many or as few stores as they please over the course of the evening.  You never know what you’ll find during VCTO, so start your night early and stay up late!



VCTO helps connect shoppers to the stores and small business owners in their neighbourhoods, breeding a sense of community within the larger city as well as helping consumers find a fun way to reduce, reuse and recycle. VCTO believes shopping local has a strong positive impact on our communities and shopping vintage a fun, stylish way to keep used garments in circulation.
