Now that it's officially Summer, many fellow travelers are hitting the road and making the market a stop along their gypsy wanderings. Vagabondia Vintage, as the name suggests, is one woman's vintage obsession incarnate. Sylvia Karcz brings women's and men's vintage garb and accessories for every style and from every era (from the 1900s to the 1990s) along with a smattering of handmade accessories to complement the treasure trove in what Sylvia calls an "aesthetic that revolves around wordly curiousity and sartorial freedom." Buckle up and enjoy the time machine ride.
