Market Day

July 4th, 2012 | Posted by Leah in Vintage Market - (7 Comments)

There are so many things to be said… it is hard to type the right words to express what we truly felt. The amount of excitement that was at the barn started during the setup and continued through to the take down!!

 

Our first “early bird” that came fully prepared to enjoy a full day of fun and shopping!!

 

It was amazing to have so many “junkers” all in one place!!!

 

All of the displays and items in each booth were beautiful!! We are in awe of each and every one of our vendors!! They all have a love for what they do and it showed!! Stephanie of Retrospect Photography did a beautiful job of capturing the entire day and you can see it all here!!

 

We wanted the market to be a fun filled day of “junking” with family and friends. Where you could find that special item you were looking, as well as the other 5 that you weren’t!!

 

A shout out to Renata, from Grow & Gather (Trice Farms).  She graciously lent us baskets of flowers to decorate around the outside of the buildings.  What a sweet and helpful lady!!  If you are in need of some flowers, she is the one to visit!! Thank you so much!!

 

 

 We want to say thank you to everyone for making our first market so AMAZING!!! We felt so blessed by all of our family and friends who helped out in everyway possible. We had wonderful, fun and friendly vendors that brought  the market all together. And THANK YOU to all the wonderful “junkers” that made the entire day what it was!!

Happy Junking

Are you ready for an amazing day of shopping at the market this Saturday? Do you have something specific you are looking for or just out to find that special “something”? Here are our thoughts on what you might want to bring with you!!

1. Family and friends you love to shop with!! The more the merrier and it makes the car ride more fun!!

2. Wear layers!! If you are an “early bird” it might be chilly waiting in the line up :)

3. Re Usable shopping bag or cart. These help you keep your hands free for more shopping!!

4. Measuring Tape to make sure your item is a perfect fit :)

5. A vehicle large enough for that “surprise” find. You do not want to have to make your friends walk home….but you will!!!

6. CASH!! Most of our vendors transactions are as vintage as the market!!

Whether you are “old hat” to markets or a “newbie” it is sure to be a fun filled shopping adventure. And to top it off,  for the non shoppers and for those who start to feel a little “peckish”, there is the “Roosters Corner” !! The Runway Cafe will be open, offering food and drinks to get you through the day!!

We are so excited and can not wait to see all of you!!!

Happy Junking

Over the weekend, I (Barb) was able to treat myself to Aroka Vintage’s Grand Opening and Market, and what a wonderful treat it was!! Dawna’s store is in the cutest vintage home with a beautiful garden area, perfect for the market. It was chilly, but the rain held off so everyone was able to take their time and enjoy.

 

 

Each vendor had beautiful items and displays, there really was something there for everyone!! And to top it all off there was lemonade, popcorn and cotton candy!!! Yummy!!

 

 

 

For those who may not know, Aroka Vintage is located at 2231 Clarke Street in Port Moody. If you have not been there yet, you really need to find some time to drop in!!

Vintage Chicks Market

June 10th, 2012 | Posted by Leah in Vintage Market - (1 Comments)

Two wonderful ladies, Leah’s mom Marilyn and sister Tanya, were sent on a mission by us! They hit the Vintage Chicks Market in Priddis AB, an hour away from Tanya’s home. Marilyn, who lives here in BC was visiting Tanya, and when Leah discovered this market we couldn’t help ourselves…we had to send them as our shoppers!! Leah spent Saturday morning texting back and forth with them as they shopped. We are so excited about all the treasures they found for us!! Here are some pictures they took along the way!!

 

 

 

 

We are so blessed to have family and friends ready and willing to help our junking  journey!!

Thanks Marilyn & Tanya!!
