We covered a lot of ground this spring trying to connect with vintage lovers and fashionistas alike. While the open road is often appealing, it’s also a lot of work. Lots of packing and unpacking, driving, sun, and rain, but the towns that welcome us and the people we meet always make it worth while. Here’s a fun little recap of our travels thus far:
In April, we took our show on the road to Vintage Lynchburg Spring Market in Lynchburg, VA. It was our first time in Lynchburg and we were impressed. It was a beautiful drive and we have never felt so welcome and at home in a new place. The show was in the Parking Garage at 10th and Commerce Streets that transformed into a magical vintage wonderland overnight. Despite temperatures so cold we could see our breath, it was a still a great show and we can’t to return. Also a shout out to Jimmy’s on the James which quickly became my favorite spot.
In May, we paid a visit to Leesburg, VA for the famous Luckett’s Spring Market. This is an annual 3-day outdoor event with over 170+ vendors. We had a little rain on Saturday night, but otherwise the weather was beautiful. They were so organized and friendly. We were glad to find yet another little home in Virginia.
And lastly, we just got back from Austin, TX this week. We were at the Vintage Market Days show there and we had a hoot! The road trip took us through Nashville, Memphis, Little Rock, and Dallas. We went to the state capitol, waited for the Congress Avenue Bridge Bats (which didn’t show for me for the 2nd time in a row), and visited some cool vintage shops like Ermine Vintage, and Jason even got to sit for a little jazz set at the Brass House. Oh yeah, and the show was fun too! We had some great booth neighbors: Forever Green Art (whose website doesn’t even do them justice), Perspective Design and Antiques, and Donna Hood Interiors, to name a few.
Thanks to all of you vintage lovers for making these adventures possible. We still have our eyes on a few more cool shows before the end of the year, so check our Event Calendar page frequently for updates.
