Seaside Vintage Market at Second Glance!

SEASIDE VINTAGE MARKET  at Second Glance, June 2 & 3!

Mid-century vintage finds, Boho Chic, food and music come to Second Glance, the thrift store of The Open Door during its first annual Seaside Vintage Market on June 2 (9 a.m. -7 p.m.) and June 3 (11 a.m. – 5 p.m.) at 2 Pond Road, Gloucester.

For more than a year, volunteers and staff have been saving vintage treasures to transform the thrift store in to a once-in-a-year vintage extravaganza. Overnight, shelves will be cleared, reorganized, and those special treasures dusted and displayed for the weekend revelry.

Last year, Second Glance headed out of town to a vintage fair in Maine. It was so successful, they decided to stay put this year, and bring the vintage buzz to Cape Ann.

“We are really excited to bring Seaside Vintage Market to Second Glance,” says Julie LaFontaine, Executive Director of The Open Door. “Sales of treasures donated by the community support our local neighbors, and the two-day event promises to be an adventure for the savvy shopper!”

Along with vintage housewares, clothing, furniture, jewelry, and unique finds, local hot dog stand Red Umbrella, (aka Joe Hot-Dog Junior) will offer refreshments, and local musicians will entertain.

The mission of The Open Door is to alleviate the impact of hunger in our community. We use practical strategies to connect people to good food, to advocate on behalf of those in need, and to engage others in the work of building food security. The Open Door serves residents of Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Essex, Ipswich, Topsfield, Boxford, Rowley, Hamilton, and Wenham.
