Hi everyone,

Repurposed Soul

Amy and I actually went together to an event last week. The Vintage Marketplace in Vista, 2040 Santa Fe, was going Friday and Saturday, so Amy and I and Barbie met up and went. The grounds at the Antique Gas and Steam engine museum are so interesting and it sets up the perfect background for this market.

We started with a building first, there are outside areas too, and we were in there over an hour. When you get to know the vendors there is always lots to talk about. We liked the way the booths were in the same places as last time. That way it’s easy to find a vendor you liked before. Then we headed outside passing @mar_lees_inspiration, the first booth you see, which looked so well arranged and decorated.

Go to any length

The next one is set for Oct 12-13 which should be perfect weather, and we love that they are skipping summer. It’s way too hot for customers and for vendors all day. We  also love that this venue has free parking and it is only $5.00.  I, Bonnie, personally hate paying for parking, I’d rather pay it to a vendor. It is beautiful in Vista around the venue too so the drive was better than some we do with only concrete to look at. I can’t wait to see here in Oct. with the pumpkins and fall colors starting to come out.

Rita Reade, the organizer, outdid herself. We loved loved loved the band. Everyone was happier because of it, dancing, singing. Lots more pictures are on the Instagram, we tried to put up as many as possible. We love the variety of dealers and the food was great!! There was an old truck and a settee area set up for pictures too.

If you haven’t been mark your calendar for Oct.  These events are just getting better and better and this one is the best, it’s one on the favorite list. Every market has their own style and no two are the same anymore, we see them all developing and changing as time goes on. That’s why we try to get to every show we can. Vendors are constantly out picking and getting new vintage pieces for each one.

Plan your summer for some fun like this. Going to a market you lose all sense of time and worries, you just have a good time. At least we always do…

Thanks for reading, Bonnie and Amy
