VTGCLT Pop – Applications Open!

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

VTGCLT is currently accepting applications for participation in VTGCLT Pop. This will be the sixth year of our full-scale pop-up shop which will be located at a popular shopping destination in Charlotte.

In response to COVID-19 and the cancellation of all markets during 2020, we have decided to extend our pop-up shop to include 6 shopping weekends before Christmas. The shop will be open for weekends only from November 12-December 6, and then will open for more extended hours beginning the weekend of December 11.

2020 Updates + Merch!

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

To say that 2020 has not gone as expected is an understatement. We have missed our Spring Market due to COVID-19, and will be crossing our fingers that our Winter festivities can move forward. As soon as we know more, we will share information here.

In other, more positive news, we are completely obsessed with the design that Emma Headley created for our Spring Market. We were bummed to see it go underused and underseen and so we have made limited edition patches from the design!

We’ve also taken the opportunity to (finally) get all of our merch available in our online shop. Everything is available for shipping and for local pick up. If you would like to show your support for VTGCLT in this time of no events, please consider buying a patch/tote/tee <3

And who knows, maybe sometime soon we will add more vintage and handmade items to the online shop 😉

Spring Market Covid19 Update

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Happy April, we made it. The sun is shining and the flowers are starting to bloom and we hope everyone is doing as well as possible. 🌸

Four weeks ago, we accepted all of our amazing vendors, and three weeks ago we decided to postpone the Spring Market. We’ve reserved a date in late June with our friends at Camp North End as a make up date. With so much uncertainty, it is hard to know if even that date will be safe, but we hope beyond hopes that it will be—most importantly because that would mean we were all past the worst of this.

VTGCLT is a brand that was founded on the idea of bringing a community of small businesses together. That our voices are louder as one and that through supporting one another we are stronger, and more successful. We believe strongly in this still, and we won’t be trying to replicate the market on-line. Rather, we will quietly plot and plan how in the future we can be together more often and in more meaningful ways.

Hopefully we will see everyone healthy and happy IRL on June 27th, but until then, stay home, stay safe, and save the date 💕

Thanksgiving Entertaining at the Vintage Charlotte Winter Market

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s that time of year again. Holiday parties around every corner and a calendar full of social events. It is easy to get caught up in all the festivities, but momma taught us best: never arrive to a party empty handed! With Thanksgiving following this weekend’s market, let the vendors of the VTGCLT Winter Market help you show your favorite host/turkey chef that you appreciate them:

Heading to a potluck but your oven hasn’t seen a broccoli casserole in 5+ years? Take it easy and call dibs on the salad. Serve it up in this teak salad set from Chartreuse MCM:

Or grab a bottle of Wild Turkey 101 and help your host get the cocktail bar ready. A beautiful decanter from Bird Dog Vintage for the bourbon lover in your life or a vintage bar set from Old Fashioned Finds CLT:

Reply too late to the group text and the only items left to bring are a bag of ice? Don’t show up slacking. Wow the crowd and show up with a hand full of records from Hardy Boy Records and declare yourself DJ for the evening:

Bringing dessert? Serve it up on these gorgeous serving trays and dessert dishes from Powder Studio:

Last but certainly not least, acknowledge your favorite holiday hosts’ hard work with a handmade gift set. The color your own tie and pocket square kit from Beautiful Idiot Clothing is sure to be something he has never gotten before. Or dazzle your lucky lady with jewelry and hand-dyed velvet gift boxes from K.Ko Studio. Finally, who wouldn’t love an herbal gift set from Good JuJu Herbal to help melt any holiday stresses away? Your host will surely thank you!

Winter Market Vendor Spotlight: O&Y Studio

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

VTGCLT is popping up on November 24th at The Fillmore for the eighth annual Winter Market! Come out and spend the day shopping with over 60 of the region’s best vintage & handmade vendors. $2 general admission 11am-5pm. Want to have first pick at all the goodies? We offer $7 early bird entry at 10am.

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 excited to welcome O&Y Studio to the Vintage Charlotte Winter Market. O&Y Studio is a Charlotte maker with a unique method of crocheting into embroidery hoops. Here is Andy with an introduction to her brand, and a sneak peek at a few special items that will be available at the Winter Market:

I have been a maker almost all my life. Growing up in South Africa, my mom put knitting needles in my hands at age 4, and she presented me with my first sewing machine at age 11. From then on I knitted and sewed my own clothes, taught myself to crochet and pursued anything artsy and crafty I could lay my hands on. I developed a love for smocking, hand-sewing and embroidery and later owned a smocking shop. 

I now enjoy freehand stitching floral and botanical designs with specialty wool threads on a crochet. When I travel, I love to share my myriad photos (many of which are of flowers) and to bring back interesting wool and mohair yarns for new creations. I create my embroideries in an array of colors and sizes; plus a selection of Christmas ornaments will be available this year!
