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

We love The Vintage Marketplace. @thevintagemarketplaceca. There is no question, no doubt, we just flat out l0ve it. We have met so many vendors there, some we see only there, others we seem to follow wherever they go. It turned into a great way for us to get to know customers too.

Many times we are waiting to say hi to a seller and get into conversations with customers and a whole lot of those customers are also junkers or crafters or “pick up stuff curbside” type of people.  They end up telling us about other venues, or sales, or good stores. We love the atmosphere that promotes friendliness. And we love following everyone! So many ideas brought to life.   Can’t wait till Sept.!!!!!!

The Vintage Marketplace is one of our favorite markets. The market always has the best vendors and sweet finds. They started out at Rainbow Oaks Park in the Rainbow area. For the last year, I’ve been fortunate enough to have it close to home in Temecula. The Temecula location is in ranch country, surrounded by mountains and horse properties. Simply beautiful. Well now they are headed “Back to their roots”! We are very excited for the market to be headed home.
