Vintage or secondhand stores have been making a resurgence over the past couple of years.

The people behind Northern Iowa Vintage and Iowa Vintage Collective announced that a vintage market pop up would be coming to the college town in late April. The Cedar Falls Vintage Market will take place on April 23rd from 10am-4pm.
