VTGCLT is popping up on November 17th at The Fillmore for the seventh annual Winter Market! Come out and spend the day shopping with over 60 of the region’s best vintage & handmade vendors.  $2 general admission 10am-4pm.  Want to have first pick at all the goodies? We offer $7 early bird entry at 9am.

We are excited to welcome Jessie from Pritzy Pritz to her very first Vintage Charlotte Winter Market. Pritzy Pritz specializes in heirloom quality handmade dolls. Jessie has sent over a sneak peak of some of the products that she will be bringing along with her to market, along with an introduction to the brand:

My name is Jessie and I began drawing patterns for dolls when my oldest daughter, now 13, was a toddler. I couldn’t find any dolls that matched my personal aesthetic or my values, so I began drafting my own. I quickly learned that I was not alone and that others were looking for a quality product that combined nostalgia with modern influence. That was 10 years ago, and they’ve gone through many iterations over the years to arrive at the heirloom- quality product I lovingly make today. Often people are seeking for dolls that represent different cultures or unique characteristics and I love being able to create something that fills that need.

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 Barbara and Ben of Marquee Market to their first Vintage Charlotte Summer Market.  Marquee Market specializes in making light up marquee letters and signs, here is Barbara with a little of their backstory:
My husband Ben and I started Marquee Market shortly after we got married in June 2013. We had made LOVE and BAR light up signs for our own wedding, and left behind the BAR sign at the venue for the coordinator to use for future events. Shortly after our wedding, the event coordinator contacted me and had a handful of clients who wanted custom signs for their own events, so we decided to open up an Etsy shop and started taking custom orders. One year later, we were relocating from Detroit to Charlotte for Ben’s job, and business from Marquee Market had surpassed my salary at my 9-5 job.  Since moving to Charlotte we have been able to grow Marquee Market and make it my full time job 🙂

We make marquee signs from scratch, but have also recently started to upcycle vintage metal signs. The crown and anchor are items that we have scored at antique shops in North Carolina, that we then drilled lights into to make into fun light up pieces.
