Applications are open for Urban Vintage!

Urban Vintage is back and in a new location for August 12th & 13th!

VintageIf you sell antique, vintage, retro, mid-century, salvage and industrial goods, this is the perfect event for you.

Urban Vintage was born from an idea to bring affordable collections of vintage and antique goods to the Raleigh area for a temporary pop-up shopping event. The first Urban Vintage took place in August of 2015. Vendors reported record breaking sales and crowds filled the venue looking for found, historical and kitschy objects seen on some of the trending designer TV shows. Urban Vintage is looking to build a reputation for the best curated goods and most
sought after vendors it can handle.

This two day shopping event will be held at a brand new venue for us (and a brand new venue for Raleigh) at Traine in Seaboard Station on Friday, August 12th from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm and on Saturday, August 13th 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. 

If this sounds like an exciting opportunity for you, please go here to fill out our on-line application. All applications are due by July 1st, but vendors are accepted on a rolling basis, so don’t delay as spaces may be filled by then.

Thank you for coming to The Handmade Market!

Screen Shot 2016-05-08 at 5.17.53 PMA huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who came out for the 20th edition of The Handmade Market this weekend! On behalf of all the fabulous artists and food vendors, thank you for taking the time to drop in and shop local! A very special thank you from The Handmaidens goes to our top-level Master Sponsor — with a generous donation from DECO Raleigh we were able to pass out those fabulous lime green notebooks greennotebook2016to the first 50 shoppers on Friday night and the first 200 shoppers on Saturday. If you were one of the lucky ones, I hope you think of us and DECO Raleigh when you jot down all your favorite thoughts in your little green book! DECO Raleigh jumped on board in January this year and has already committed to sponsor all four of our Handmaidens produced shows in 2016! You can see why they are a pretty BIG DEAL in our minds!

Thanks again to Wolfie & the Sneak for another beautiful logo design! Renee Garner is the artist behind those beautiful flowers! Thank you Renee! We get SO many compliments on our poster!

Our biggest shout out goes to YOU, who contributed to our featured charity Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina; YOU, who

pitched in to ensure no one suffers from hunger in our part of NC.

TOGETHER we raised $474.00 to help feed the hungry. Thank you!

If you have a story to share about your day at The Handmade Market, we would really love to hear from you. And check out our Handmaidens group on Flickr for great photos of all the past shows!
