Thanks for showing up! Oh what fun!

A great big hug to all of you who came to Urban Vintage at All Saint’s Chapel this weekend! What a gorgeous and perfect background for all the freshly picked vintage treasures! Your overwhelming patronage and support keeps us excited and going strong, and confirms we are still on to something that people want here! Thank you for coming out and making our vendors happy. And allowing them to leave the show with a haul much lighter than when they arrived!

To the amazing vendors, we thank YOU for bringing all your drool-worthy goods to All Saint’s Chapel and for making the space look like a magical, rusty, vintage, retro shoppers paradise. We already can’t wait to start planning the next Urban Vintage.

If you want to keep up with any or all of the vendors you saw this weekend, check out the vendor gallery.  And, read the vendor spotlight posts, where you will also find links to their various websites and social media outlets. Keep on drooling and find out where they will be showing up next.

We would love to shout out one more THANKS to our show sponsors.

 

We really cannot thank them enough for believing in our big idea and partnering with us to bring this show to you fine folks! Thank you to All Saint’s Chapel for wanting us to have Urban Vintage in their space. The staff at All Saint’s was a dream to work with!

 

And DECO….  you’ve helped us pull it off again with your support! Thanks for loving Raleigh so!

Urban Vintage Spotlight: funkijunk

Christy Moyers of funkijunk

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
Next year, I’ll be celebrating my 25th year as a full-time antiques dealer, and I’ll gladly do it for another 25. It’s addictive, y’all! I’m attracted to unusual, little things from all eras. If it’s something I’ve never seen before, I’ll buy it, no question. If it’s quirky, I’m in love! Old leather boxes, Victorian silver, pop culture paper goods and antique books are the fan favorites at markets. I carry a fun mix of goods relating to science, history, art, and culture. If you’re wanting to add personality to your coffee table and bookcases, I’m your girl! Imagine Thomas Jefferson’s library crossed with Janis Joplin’s bedroom, and throw in kitschy souvenirs from a 1950s road trip on Route 66 …that’s my style. Folks often say I’m a traveling museum, (but with affordable prices, of course)! I love the thrill of the hunt, and I’m super passionate about design, too, but the best part of this business is meeting all the interesting people.

For the Urban Vintage market, I’ll have a nice variety of antique books, maps, botanical prints, medical book plates and a ton of paper goods & ephemera. I’m also bringing old cameras, 1920s-1950s advertising feed sacks, a gorgeous 1970s Curtis Jeré bronzed seagull sculpture, vintage safety razors, Catholic medals and some rosaries too, a Victorian stereoscope, and the cutest ever, little 1960s Mighty Mouse alarm clock. The list is endless!

Who are your style crushes/vintage icons/fashion muses, and why/how do they influence you?:
I am madly in love with Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s current creative director. The way he embraces maximalism really speaks to me. He sees beauty everywhere and so do I.

Everybody has that thing that got away, what’s the purchase you never made that still sometimes keeps you awake at night?:
A traditional, colorful embroidered Scandinavian coat, probably dating to the 1930s. It was the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen. I was willing to put all my money into it and eat nothing but rice for a month, but sadly, I was still outbid at auction!

Where can customers usually shop your wares:
The Depot at Gibson Mill in Concord, NC, and at shows.

a community thank you to DECO raleigh!

 

DECO raleigh has been our best friend since their beginning! Every time we put together an event, they are the first to jump on board as a Master Sponsor. They are huge promoters of downtown Raleigh and small business. They have been partnering with us since they opened their doors in 2012. If you need a gift for someone and cannot find it at DECO raleigh, then you’re not really looking! They carry the works of more than 60 local artisans.

And, have you checked out DECO home? We guarantee that there will be something for you to pick up to go along with your purchase this weekend at Urban Vintage!


Don’t forget when you visit DECO raleigh + home you need to check out the parklet just outside their door? It was designed as a community effort among Deco Raleigh, faculty and students from the NCSU College of Design, and local businesses. What a great use of a parking spot. Check out raleigh [ ] space to learn how it came to be.
