Posted by | events, vendor spotlight | No Comments

Admission to the market is $2 from 11am-6pm! Get in an hour early at 10am for $7 to get first pick of all the goods.

Leading up to the market, we’ll be sharing vendor spotlight posts that give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors in advance of the market. We are really excited to welcome back Sophie of Kitsch and Fancy to the Vintage Charlotte Winter Market.  Kitsch and Fancy specializes in handmade, luxury bath and beauty products.  Here is Sophie with a little bit of the story behind the brand:

Kitsch and Fancy was created because of my love of luxury bath and beauty items but the lack of handmade soaps that offered beautiful, feminine packaging.  I have always collected soap dishes and love treating myself to a pretty soap to keep in each of my soap dishes.  Kitsch and Fancy offers lovely handmade products with an extra focus on feminine touches when it comes to scents, colors, and packaging.  I get so much enjoyment and personal satisfaction from the entire process: from coming up with ideas for products to creating them, and packaging them in my colorful studio.collectionEvery year, Kitsch and Fancy brings a few specialty items that are only available locally at Vintage Charlotte!  This year I will be offering a creamy, all-natural body butter featuring skin-nourishing shea butter and almond oil. soap All of my holiday soap scents are back this year including Balsam-fir, Cinnamon-clove, and Maple Honey & Molasses.  Last year, the dozen mini sampler bag was a huge hit and the perfect stocking stuffer!  A bag with a dozen wrapped mini soaps from my current seasonal collection, perfect to give as a gift as is or as mini stocking stuffers.bathtea_sprinkles-jpg il_570xn-341909977

We are really excited to welcome Jesse of Tarpin Vintage to his first Vintage Charlotte Market.  Tarpin Vintage specializes in modern, 20th century design.  Here is Jesse from Tarpin Vintage:

I grew up in New York and later moved to California before I decided, after extensive travel, to settle in the south. North Carolina has become my home. As kids me and my youngest brother loved to go to the thrift stores to see what cool items we could find. We preferred the thrift store clothes and later furniture that we could fix up as opposed to buying new.

img_4181img_4167Vintage has always been something I have been drawn to, and most of the time, the vintage pieces are of higher quality then what is mass produced today.img_4169I love good design wether it be in architecture or a piece of furniture. I like simple and well built pieces and am drawn to the early modern movement. Tarpin Vintage has become a collection of the pieces I find in my travels that are appealing to me. img_3602

We are really excited to welcome Matt of Carolina WDWRX (short for woodworks!) to his first Vintage Charlotte Market.  Carolina WDWRX specializes in custom, original woodworking, right here in Charlotte, NC.  Here is Matt from Carolina WDWRX with a little about childhood, inspiration and working alongside dad:

Growing up, I spent many a Saturday morning holding boards, steadying ladders, driving nails, and cleaning up sawdust for my dad’s various projects. While at the time, I probably would have preferred to watch cartoons or go back to bed, the skills I picked up along the way from my dad have proven to be invaluable.wdwrx-2Today, I gets the privilege of working alongside my dad in making the Carolina WDWRX items you’ll see at the market. Continuing to glean from my dad’s vast knowledge of woodworking (and occasionally even getting to teach him a thing or two!) not only allows us to deliver top notch quality items, but to pass on what is truly becoming a lost art.wdwrx-4 wdwrx-1Our inspiration is nature, preferring when possible to keep the original aesthetic of the wood. You’ll rarely see any heavily stained / dyed wood, and we keep the live/natural edges intact whenever possible. We blend that raw / natural aesthetic with modern/industrial elements to create pieces that we hope will exceed your expectations for form and function.screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-8-18-28-am screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-8-19-32-am

LLG_1269

Like most people, I rented a lot of houses and apartments in my 20s, and I moved a LOT.  For about ten years, I was constantly either packing or unpacking.  Every year when spring came, I already knew I’d be somewhere else in August, but I would get so overwhelmed with excitement at the changing season that I’d plant a really robust garden anyway.  Tomatoes, cucumber, herbs, and annual flowers seemed to be non-negotiable, but by the time the tomatoes were really coming in, I’d be living somewhere else, driving by to look at them and wishing someone would pick them.  I’d promise myself I wasn’t going to spend money planting a garden the following year, but every year I would.

So of course when we bought our house in 2012, I immediately put in a bed of perennials out behind my workshop.  I will never forget the first plant I saw emerge that following spring.  It was a sedum.  It was both fragile and strong at the same time, pale green and fat, and the sight of that delicate floret emerging from the soil after the horrendous winter absolutely electrified me.  A garden I wouldn’t have to re-plant, or abandon?!  I’ll never forget it.  That was the year I really started honing in on the botanical side of my brand and I’ve run with it ever since.

Leading up to the market, we’ll be sharing vendor spotlight posts that give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors in advance of the market. We are really excited to welcome Sara of Original Brooks to her first Vintage Charlotte Market.  We just love these beautiful hand-sewn notebooks and can’t wait to see them in person at the Summer Market, here is Sara with a little about her process:
original brooksPrimarily self-taught as a bookbinder, I learned the fine craft of bookbinding while studying photography at the University of Oklahoma. But it was not until moving to Asheville in 2011 that my interest in bookmaking became serious. My bookmaking practice combines traditional bookbinding techniques and a modern approach to design. My handmade books incorporate vintage materials with clean designs. I am inspired by mid-century modern furniture and architecture and 1970’s floral motifs.
Process_ZodiacNotebook 2abb4f_2e1aefb0fdee40f1984f1773d3c10e01My books are hand-sewn, limited edition runs made from vintage paper and fabrics. I love the thrill of the hunt for a good bargain! Buying materials for my books is an excuse to go to thrifting. I can find interesting paper and cool vintage fabrics inexpensively. Using recycled materials not only make my books very unique (often one-of-a-kind) but also affordable for my customers. I feel good knowing that I am conserving resources and often saving materials bound for the landfill. For instance, I found a huge box of old, dated church programs that had no real use anymore. I was able to salvage part of the paper and create about 50 notebooks. I love the challenge of looking at a material and figuring out a creative re-use for it.Covers1 Brooks1
