The Vintage Clothing and Textile Show is back this Sunday in its 25th year at Pickwick Gardens in Burbank. If you like browsing flea markets, hitting garage sales, shopping at thrift stores or just digging through your grandmother’s attic, this is the event for you.

Sixty-five exhibitors will be on hand offering a huge variety of vintage clothing, fabrics, and accessories from all eras. You never know what trinket or treasure you’ll find here—maybe the perfect cocktail dress, a gently used designer purse, or even beautiful satin shoes from the 1920’s. On my last visit to the show, my daughter scored 100 year-old knee high women’s leather boots for under $100.

There will also be booths with antique table and bed linens, Victorian lace, retro-style glass frames, antique postcards and much more.

Vintage Playclothes in Studio City is a big exhibitor at this show. Per Store Manager Phyllis Schaefer, look for a cross section of their merchandise this weekend, including cashmere and beaded sweaters, shoes, handbags, hats from the 1940’s and men’s wear. When I asked Phyllis why she likes this trade show, she said, “Where else can you find this much assortment in one place?”

Cash is king here and it may help you with some price negotiations, however most vendors do take credit cards. There’s also a small kiosk to buy food.

You never know what you’ll find at the Vintage Clothing and Textile Show, but you’ll have fun looking!
