If you are interested in fashion or looking to revamp your wardrobe, head to the Third Annual Thrift and Vintage Expo on Saturday.

More than 100 thrift and vintage vendors from across California will showcase and sell their items in Valdez Hall at the Fresno Convention Center from noon to 7 p.m.

General admission tickets are available online at for $10.

Anyone purchasing tickets at the door for $20 will receive a $10 discount if they donate any clothing, hygiene products, or canned goods. These donations will go to Poverello House.

The expo is expected to be a haven of thrift bargains, including handmade items, rare collectibles, designer clothing, vintage pieces, and more.

In addition to the vendors, the event will include a workshop series for individuals interested in the secondhand industry, four food trucks, and performances from a lineup of DJs and musical artists, including Reverie.

Event organizer, James Pallares of Golden Era Vintage, hopes the event will foster community growth.

“This event has come together from collaboration from people from various areas of the thrift and vintage community… representing not only the city of Fresno and the Central Valley but our entire state and community,” said Pallares in a news release. “I believe creating the spaces for people to exchange ideas and collaborate will only strengthen the thrift and vintage community.”
