Ontario's largest travelling thrift event, "The Street Market," is making its next stop in Montreal. On August 12 and 13, Alexis Nihon will host a showcase of pre-loved fashion, combining sustainability with style. The clothing pop-up offers an opportunity to refresh your wardrobe and make more eco-friendly choices.

From noon to 5 p.m., multiple vendors at "The Street Market" will display curated second-hand items, including vintage, streetwear, womenswear, and accessories.

Plus, when people ask about your sweater, you can tell them it's vintage.
