From Casual Streetwear to Glitter & Gold, The Ottawa Vintage Show Has it All (+GIVEAWAY)
Attention all glittery girls – and guys too. One of the most coveted fashion events in Ottawa is just around the corner. This amazing day I speak of is The Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show happening this Sunday, November 6 at the Shaw Centre from 10am-5pm. Forget everything current, because for whatever reason vintage is like the real authentic cool. There will literally be thousands of handpicked items, including accessories, streetwear, something the Real Housewives of Orange County has been seen in, or even a bridal gown (my friend got married in the dress she found at THIS show). From being an insta-famous fashionista to the average dude shopping at The Rideau Centre, there really is something for everyone.
Everything You Need to Know
When: Sunday November 6 2016, 10am-5pm
Where: The Shaw Centre (Convention Centre), 55 Colonel By Drive
How Much: $10, or if you’re under 12 free. Tickets will go on sale at the Shaw Centre at 930am on the day of the show, and I’ll be there doing some live coverage on social media so check it out because you’re going to be seeing some fabulous items darlings! Click here for a discount coupon.
Parking: You can park at the Rideau Centre/Shaw Convention Centre, but there is alternate parking at City Hall Lot, 114 Laurier Ave. West and this parking is only $2.00. Parking is also available around the University of Ottawa. Click here for a map. There’s also always O.C. Transpo as there are numerous buses available.
How to Pay: Bring your cash! Not every vendor accepts credit/debit. There are ATMs on site, but they do get very busy, which I can tell you from personal experience. You don’t want to be waiting in line while someone snatches your precious find!
Changing Room: From what I can recall there are makeshift changing rooms, so it may be just a teeny bit more complicated than how you would go about it in your average shop. I usually just strip down. Whatever. Free the nipple!
Coming Up: Don’t miss 613Christmas Saturday November 12 2016 at the Horticultural Building at Lansdowne Park.
