We love to get out and meet fellow collectors, jewelry* lovers and those who appreciated beautiful design and craftsmanship. As such we have a few pop-up stores coming up and we want to share the details with you.
First Canadian Collectors Club Show and Sale Saturday, October 5th
For the budding collector, the treasure hunter, or the art and culture enthusiast, the First Canadian Collectors Club Show and Sale is an event you can't miss out on. Their show occurs twice a year and dealers from around Alberta clamour to get a table. As a visitor you are sure to find some interesting pieces. As from La Vogue Vintage's point of view it enables us to showcase our vintage jewelry within the Calgary community. What you would normally see online or in our showroom, you can now see it at the Thorncliffe-Greenview Community Hall. We have managed to restore, repair, clean some interesting items we acquired during the summer and many of them will be on display for the first time at this show.
Red Deer Christmas Antique, Vintage, Retro Show and Sale, October 19 & 20
For those who like to plan early for Christmas the Carswell's 29th Red Deer Christmas Antique Furniture, Vintage, Retro Show and Sale is a must. We have always enjoyed meeting the out of town folks who flock to this two day show. There are dealers from Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and further east and their tables are always jam packed with interesting collectibles. The La Vogue Vintage workshop is constantly busy with new stock items and you can be sure that we will be showcasing our latest pieces at this show.
Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market, November 15-17, 22-24, 29 & 30 and December 1
We love the thrill of this show, Christmas is in the air, people are happy and jolly and we have the privilege of helping so many people to find special gifts for their loved ones. This will be our fourth year of exhibiting at the show and we enjoy seeing the regular groups of friends spending time together, families enjoying each others company and couples having fun. Most of all we enjoy the conspiring with our customers as they try to secretly buy a meaningful gift without the recipient finding out.
If finding locally sourced, designed, crafted, recycled gifts is important to you, then please add these dates to your calendar as you are sure to find what you are looking for if you visit La Vogue Vintage at one of our pop-up stores.
* Our customers are from all over the world and as such we use both versions of the word jewellery or jewelry.
