Seven bucks at the door buys a day of browsing for deals from Toronto's top vintage dealers and some of this burg's trendiest designers. It's time for the Old Clothing Show And Sale -- featuring the ever-popular New Clothing Annex -- hitting the Automotive Building (Exhibition Place) Sunday (October 1) from 11 am to 6 pm. There's some Antiques Roadshow-style action from 1 to 3 pm, when appraisers from Vintage Couture.Com will look at your vintage treasures. Retailers including Courage My Love, Flashback and Black Market offer extra-good prices to show patrons, who come for clearance items as well as overstock, plus special duds brought in just for this day. Designers including Hoax Couture, Damzels in This Dress, The People Have Spoken, Desire and Sushi Design are selling at studio-direct prices. There are two schools among Old Clothing Show diehards -- get there early for the best selection, or get there late to drive the hardest deal. Either way, you win. Seniors pay $4. 657-2156. www.oldclothingshow.com
