inherited vintage
For each year I spend as a vintage seller, I realize I’ll never be able to streamline the color palette or the era of pieces I sell. In one moment, I’m drawn to muted, dusky hues and pieces from the 1910s to the 1930s. In another breath, I’ll be pulled in the direction of a brightly embroidered bohemian piece from the 1970s. For the 2017 Summer Market, I’m pulling together two capsules that manage to capture both sides of the spectrum.

Along with these capsule collections, I’ll have handbags, shoes, jewelry, and other accessories to add a vintage touch to your wardrobe. Counting down the days until the market!

We are really excited to welcome Tamara of Batch Craft to their first Vintage Charlotte Summer Market.  Batch Craft is an artisan chocolate bar maker, if the photos alone don’t make you drool, here is Tamara with a little of their story: 
batch craft chocolate
 As lifelong artists, everything influences — and is an expression of — our making. Our current releases feature limited edition, dark chocolate bars as well as travel-inspired drawings and paintings. While art and chocolate might seem an unexpected pairing, both require heavy doses of curiosity, ingenuity, tenacity and craft.
batch craft chocolate
We made our first small batch of bean-to-bar chocolate more than 3 years ago and are currently still one of only two bean-to-bar makers in South Carolina. We use only natural ingredients and the best direct trade cacao beans in the world. We often explore new regions of the world for inspiration as well as partner with local makers including Pure Intentions Coffee, Free Range Brewing, Bulls Bay Saltworks (Charleston, SC) and Dover Vineyards (Concord, NC.)

Each bar is signed and numbered as part of 3–4 limited editions per year. Once the batch sells out, it is gone for good. We are excited to release Batch 10 at the VTGCLT Summer Market!batch craft chocolatebatch craft chocolate

Winter Market Vendor Spotlight: Kitsch and Fancy

Posted by | events, vendor spotlight | No Comments

VTGCLT is popping up on November 20th at The Fillmore Charlotte for the fifth annual Winter Market! Come out and spend the day shopping with over 60 of the region’s best vintage & handmade vendors. 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
