About The Vintage Bazaar
The Vintage Bazaar (TVB) is a curated urban vintage market featuring distinctive vintage furniture, home decor, clothing, and accessories. The first TVB took place February 27, 2010 at the DANK Haus in Lincoln Square. Since then there have been nine vintage events, which have taken place in vacant storefronts, warehouse spaces, concert halls, and outdoor spaces — including a pop-up inside of the wildly popular Renegade Craft Fair.
