Vintage Whites: A Market Worth Vlogging About
You guys. I did it. I Facebooked Live and lived to tell about it.
And seriously, there's no better place to dip your toe into the proverbial video waters than Vintage Whites.
I wanted to give you the full experience of wandering the booths, but pictures alone seemed inadequate to convey the quirky, hip vibe of this one of a kind market.
It's like spending an afternoon combing your favorite aunt's shabby chic attic.
So much to see and marvel at. So let's take a visual tour of the market, hitting a few highlights, before we move onto my favorite part- a glimpse at my vintage booty.
Going live with Sweet Pepper Vintage! Okay. I'm a little over excited about this. It was my first attempt at Facebook Live for the blog. I always wanted to be a broadcast journalist when I was younger, so this is like living the dream. And I got to highlight a vendor that is one of my very favorites. Later, you'll get to see the fantastic food props that I took home with me, courtesy of Sweet Pepper Vintage.
And while much of it focuses on shabby chic and rustic style furniture, art and decor, there's plenty of eclectic vintage items to go around. This incredible authentic prom dress graced some southern belle and Retro Betty wants to make sure it finds a second life with an appreciative partner.

Everywhere, there are little touches, tucked away details that make all the difference. These little green beauties were part of a display by Ina luvs Leone.
You'll see more about this vendor later because I fell in love with one of her pieces and ended up carting it home.

I spotted these folks at the last market and they certainly are some of the best in show in terms of display. We could hang out here all day at Black Sheep Flea and gush about the decor and charming juxtapositions, but there's a market to see people. Places to be, things to fall in love with.

Next up, the main building where the sprawl of booths is utterly overwhelming. But that's okay, we're gonna take it one step at a time, preferably in these slippers. Because this is how dreams come true.
If the Slipper Fits...
There are two levels to this venue, and so many vendors worthy of note that I lost count. I stopped by Rustic Passion to admire and walked away with something fantastic that I'll share later. That happens sometimes. No complaints here, especially at prices like these.

Just around the corner, I stumbled upon these gals from Sprinkle & Dash. They may look familiar, because I featured them in my post about Craft Lake City last month. They let me munch on macarons at their booth and film it in all my awkward glory. Kudos to them and to those fantastic feet.

There's lots more to see upstairs, so let's take one last gander at all that bicycle and make our way to some next level stuff.
I emerged from the stairs straight into the wonderland that is Francie & Co.'s whimsical tents. These fantasies of fabric are a dream come true for any child.

Just a few steps away, Fancy This offers lots of french inspired decor. including this pretty bird themed orb.
Just a few more stops on our market tour before you can rest your tired feet. I promise. The first is this spot by Sweet Salvage. They lured me in with the shiny, then kept me with a pretty sweet deal you'll see later.
It takes a steady hand to do typography and Upcycle Queen has one. She free-handed this reclaimed wood bar. That's right. Free-handed. Talk about next level.
So that's about it, friends. I hope you enjoyed your market tour. Now for the part where I get to brag about what came home with me. I've indicated in the captions where you can connect with each vendor to get some goods of your own.
