You’d think that competing local businesses would hate to help each other out, but Yorkville’s Rac Boutique is hosting The Bazaar, a four-day marketplace at Loft 580 from April 5 to April 8 showcasing goods from Rac itself, Robber, LAB Consignment, 69 Vintage, Jacflash, Woodlawn, Dalston Grey, GotStyle, Tosca Delfino, Fashionably Yours, Rita Liefhebber, Fischer Street, Love of Mine, Aeroplane Vintage Eyewear and Elle Hardware. Rac owners Glenna Weddle and Faith Orfus said in press release that The Bazaar “gives [them] the opportunity to share what [they] love most about Rac and partner with other independent retailers in the city,” but we’re just wondering who is going to be offering complimentary cupcakes, macarons and prosecco first in hopes of attracting the most buyers.

The Bazaar, 580 King St. W., April 5 (6–11 p.m.)

Hours: April 5, 6-11 p.m.; April 6 and 7, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; April 8, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
