EDGEWATER–It just got easier to shop locally for the holidays. That’s because the Vintage Garage Chicago Holiday Trunk Show and the DIY Trunk Show have coordinated efforts, making a one-trip shop stop in Edgewater possible.
The popular Vintage Garage will move indoors for the Vintage Garage Holiday Trunk Show November 17-18. Located just a few blocks from the summer market location, the two-day Vintage Garage Holiday Trunk Show will provide enough clothing, jewelry, furniture, advertising memorabilia, games, appliances, glassware and electronics to get you through the winter.
Also on November 17, and about one block from the Vintage Garage Holiday Trunk Show, the DIY Trunk Show produced by Chicago Craft Mafia will showcase diverse talent offering handmade arts, crafts, goods, and endeavors of all kinds.
“Here are two great opportunities in close proximity that make it easy to go the extra mile to provide unique holiday gifts,” says Melissa Sands of Vintage Promotions, LLC, producer of the Vintage Garage Holiday Trunk Show. “Plus you’ll know your purchases are helping local people and the local economy.”
Promoters also point out that shopping locally, repurposing, buying locally made goods and buying re-marketed goods are all green activities.
The Vintage Garage Holiday Trunk Show will be held November 17th and 18th from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. in a storefront at Granville and Broadway.
