What better way to celebrate Earth Month than by giving unique and beautiful secondhand treasures a new life? You’re invited to join us for our first annual Bradenton Vintage & Thrift Shop Crawl!
To join in on the fun, simply visit each of our participating vendors between April 1st and April 25th. Pick up a Shop Crawl Card at the first location you visit, then get your card stamped at each location. Feel free to browse – no purchase is necessary. However, if you choose to make a purchase, you just may cause the shop owner to do a happy dance! 🙂
Once you’ve collected all eight stamps, leave your card at the last location you visit. You’ll be entered into a drawing to win the grand prize – a $25 gift card from each participating shop, plus some cool Discover Bradenton swag!!
Here’s a quick look at each of the exciting locations we’ve selected for you…
