The holidays are just around the corner and VTGCLT is holding its 6th annual Winter Market just in time for you to get a head start on your shopping. Hosted at The Fillmore on November 18, the market features an array of locally made goods and hard-to-find vintage items. Find furniture, clothing, accessories, and things you didn’t even know you needed from over 60 of region’s best vintage and handmade vendors. Better yet, all items were thoughtfully chosen specifically for this event. To help you find your way around, we’ve compiled a list of some you should definitely check out.
