About VCTO

WHAT

Vintage Crawl Toronto (VCTO) is a twice-yearly, walkable event that connects shoppers to the sustainably-minded stores and small business owners in their neighbourhoods. Retailers and popup vendors that participate in VCTO stay open late, offering sales and surprises. Each location 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!

 

WHY

VCTO nurtures a sense of community within Toronto and helps consumers find a fun way to reduce, reuse and recycle. We believe shopping local has a strong positive impact on our neighbourhoods, and shopping vintage a fun, stylish way to keep used garments in circulation.
