Thank you!! Urban Vintage was another huge success!

A HUGE thank you, and a big warm hug to all of you who came to Urban Vintage at the gorgeous Traine! Your overwhelming patronage and support keeps us excited and going strong, and confirms we are still on to something great 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!

Thank you to the amazing vendors for bringing all their drool-worthy goods and together making the space look like a magical, rusty, vintage, retro shoppers paradise. We already can’t wait for the next Urban Vintage in March!

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.Traine-Logo-Web

Urban Vintage Spotlight: Retro Reclaimations

Jennifer Benson from Retro Reclaimations

IMG_20160709_120734My love for vintage started as a child shopping with my mom. She would “pick” me,out of her four children, to go shopping once a month. The sights, sounds, and especially the smell of antique/vintage stores stayed with me through adulthood. My brain loves science, my degree is in biology, but my heart loves vintage. I have collected vintage glassware, think Pyrex & Hazel Atlas, for years and only this year opened an online store-RetroReclaimations.com– & began applying to EVERY vintage market across the Carolinas (which I am in the process of writing an ebook about). I enjoy selling online but am passionate about attending markets. The people, the atmosphere, and mostly the nostalgia are where it’s at for me. I have witnessed women walk in to my booth, spot a piece of vintage Pyrex, and listened as her eyes filled with tears while she told me the story about receiving that exact Pyrex dish as a wedding present in 1958. Each & every dish, glass, salt shaker I sell have a history of previous ownership. Ultimately, this is what I chase…the stories.

Huge Thank You’s to DECO raleigh, Retro Modern Furnishings and Traine

Meet the unsung heroes of Urban Vintage. That’s right! They may not get the top billing that the Handmaidens get for putting together Urban Vintage, but they are key players!

Traine-Logo-WebIf it were not for the generosity of the folks at Traine, there may not have even been a summer Urban Vintage! Traine is a new event venue that everyone in Raleigh should be excited about!

The venue is gorgeous. The staff at Traine are SO easy to work with. We feel at home here! This venue is going to be the next hot spot for weddings and social events. You need to check it out in person. Then go to their website and check out all their photos. You’ll be amazed at how they can change the look to suit your needs. We wish WE had the resources, time and space to set up a sweet lounge area out on the deck for Urban Vintage, like you’ll see in the photos. Be sure to check out everything Traine has to offer and tell your friends! Raleigh needs venues like this. We are thrilled to help showcase them.

DECO-raleigh

 

DECO raleigh is our best friend! 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. DECO-window-300If 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 seen 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.

 

RetroModern_logo-FINAL-4

 

Retro Modern Furnishings is a great fit for Urban Vintage. What started as a love for interior design and repurposing neglected furniture,IMG_2698 has turned into a beautiful store front filled with much more. Retro Modern Furnishings celebrates designers of the past with their vintage finds and ‘designers of the future’ by carrying new home furnishings from local artists. They will be showing off a nice sample of what their store offers at Urban Vintage. So, you can check them out at the show on Friday and Saturday. Then when you’ve fallen in love with what they have, you can head to their Raleigh store anytime for more!

 

So help us say thank you to these awesome sponsors but taking a good look at what they offer and telling all your friends!
