Downtown Cornwall is going vintage for a day.

The Vintage Collective is set to bring a day of retro fun to the Downtown on Saturday, October 23rd, with a total of 9 vintage vendors setting up in the Cornwall Square pop-ups and neighbouring dgvintage on First Street East for a one-day pop-up market that can’t be missed.

For organizer and dgvintage owner Dayna Gunn, it’s a chance to both celebrate her business and showcase the commercial district she calls home. The event coincides with the first anniversary of her business, and she decided to celebrate the occasion with the thing she knows best – vintage gear. It will also be a chance to showcase the Downtown’s great mix of retailers and restaurants with shoppers who are checking out the pop-up market.

“It’s going to be a fun event that can hopefully be continued for years to come,” she said. “There’s so many markets in other cities. I thought it would be nice to bring something like this to Cornwall.”

In addition to dgvintage, shoppers will be able to check out vendors like Weft & Whorl, Thrift Sola, Royal 22 Thrifts, Delirium Thrift, Thrifting with Brady, Outlast Vintage, The BackWhen Shop, Wrong Generation and The Daly Thrift.

“There’s 10 vendors total and there will be lots to choose from,” Gunn said. “Every vendor has their own specific style. There will be band tees, Disney and Looney Tunes stuff, sports apparel, wrestling things and more, plus a lot of fall pieces.”

The Vintage Collection will run from 11 am to 5 pm.
