Vintage Market Days

Hi, it’s Bonnie,

Vintage Market Days

We were lucky enough to be given tickets for Vintage Market Days in Summerlin Nv. and we had two extra to giveaway. We ( my friend Barbie and I, Amy had to work) went up Thursday. The venue was at a outdoor mall across from the Red Rock Casino, it’s a lovely area. Summerlin has lots of trees and greenery, directly below the mountain ranges, it stands out like a work of art. The area is called The Lawn at Summerlin. Every store you can imagine is right there.

The market went Fri-Sunday so it just ended yesterday afternoon. We went Friday morning

Eclecticity

about an hour after it started. The traffic inside was great. We knew some of the vendors so that made it fun, as always, to check how they were doing. Not too shabby_by_sabby, Sabrina, was soooo busy. She sold quite a few things before we even got there. Luckily they had a trailer full still. She was a hit.  It’s funny that Vegas does not have many vintage stores. We looked!!! They are starting to get some, and we heard that Boulder City has a lot. Next trip!!! Las Vegas has some vintage clothing stores and some antique stores. We went to two, Charleston Antique Mall and Laura’s Treasures., that we liked. With that in mind, vintage was a big draw at the market. There were about 60 vendors so there is clearly a market for old, repurposed, repainted, reused, shabby, distressed. We were so happy to run into Country_Skye who lives nearby,  we had met a few years ago down at Behind the Picket Fence. Got some cool silver salt and peppers shakers from her.

1 Vet Designs

Also there, 1vetdesigns, who make really cool edison lamps with pipe sections and fittings. We met them at the Vintage Marketplace back when it was at Galway Downs so it was great to see them. So creative and different than any other lights. We walked around and introduced ourselves to some of the vendors we didn’t know. It was windy so that made it a little more challenging for pop-ups!! Always something extra to add to all the work these guys do. Check out the pictures and then go to their instagram and facebook posts to learn more about the show and the dealers.

The setting was great, the music was fantastic, the food trucks, several, were very very good. The vendors were happy and so were we. Thank you to Brandi and Erica for inviting us. We loved the way you set this up, clearly you are experts!!! The backdrops alone show how talented you are. This market travels to many states but lucky us, it will return Oct 26-8. We’ll be there, are you making your plans yet? Dealers from So Calif. should  absolutely look into it. We would have loved to go every day but we had to get home for the Red Rooster Vintage Market on Saturday. No rest for the weary-except we never get weary of hunting vintage!!!

Thanks for reading…Amy and Bonnie
