Over the past year, I've been exploring the world of vintage/resale clothes and shoes. It all started when Square One Vintage opened for business in Cedar Falls. I found some really awesome pieces that have become staples in my wardrobe.

After some successful finds, I started to dip my toes into this interesting space and discovered an exciting event that's going on in August here in Eastern Iowa.

VICE Presents Kick-It, a buy, sell, and trade expo that will be bringing in vendors from all across the Midwest to the Hawkeye State. This is the five-year anniversary of the initial Kick-It expo and it's already set to be an exciting day!

"We are proud to have reached this incredible milestone and want to thank each and every one of you for your support over the years," the organizer for the event said on social media.

"...whether you are a seasoned reselling entrepreneur or simply looking to discover new arts and fashions, we have something for everyone."
