Here is a look at how Revision Vintage got started and a sneak peak of what they are bringing to market:

Revision Vintage is a vintage clothing and oddities shop in Downtown Greensboro co-owned and collaboratively run by five women. Our story began in a shared studio space in 2016 where we hosted monthly vintage pop-up shops and parties. In May 2017, we made the move to our downtown storefront and regular retail hours. We focus on wearable, affordable vintage with a rock and roll vibe and that indescribable ‘it factor.’ We’re your stop for jaw-dropping holiday party dresses, tooled leather bags, vintage furs (and faux furs), and perfect leather motorcycle jackets.

We are really excited to welcome Laura from Posy to her first Vintage Charlotte Winter Market. Posy specializes in quality, personal, and purposeful vintage goods. Here is Laura with some of her favorite customer stories and a sneak peak of what she is bringing to market:

At a recent market, I met a new customer, Joshua, who was interested in a 1970’s world globe. He ends up buying it and comes back for his purchase toward the end of the event, saying, “You know how you buy something, and you feel immediate remorse, wondering why you bought that thing? This isn’t one of those times! I love this globe and will keep it forever!” His joy at finding something meaningful was so uplifting! Much like the guy who bought dominoes for his uncle who’d just taught him to play. Or the customer who bought a drinking glass from the World Fair in NYC because he’d been there, the year the glass stated, and had fallen into the fountain, only to have his dad jump in and rescue him. And I love the instance a customer bought a yellow and red floral recipe box because it’s the same one his mom had, and he stayed in my booth texting all his siblings to confirm and share in the excitement.

Posy started off as a love for vintage and has morphed into a matchmaking service, pairing folks with an item that has true meaning to them!

Deliberate Design manifested after a trip to Big Bend National Park. During this trip I woke up every morning with the intention to live deliberately. Small tasks that typically seem pesky in my day to day routine such as waking up at sunrise, brewing coffee or cooking meals shifted to being tasks that I would naturally look forward to. Today it is easy to search for instant gratification, but the work you put into the process is what makes the outcome worthwhile.  I learned to fall in love with the process.

The gentle squeak, metal clanking and whir of a century-old printing press provides a rhythmic symphony of sounds as they feed and print each card one-at-a-time.  Vintage wood and metal hand-set typographic letters are combined with Robin’s hand-drawn designs and a vibrant color palette of hand-mixed soy and reclaimed inks.One in Melon Macro Above: The hallmark characteristic of letterpress art is the deep, sunken impression of the print.

I make ceramic objects for everyday use that capture a memory or a daydream of an exotic place. The time I have spent in the homes of Mexican immigrants and in the tiled rooms of Spain and Morocco has nudged my aesthetic toward bold folk imagery and geometric patterns. I am currently obsessed with Moroccan “zellige” tile mosaics and the palm fronds I saw all over Costa Rica.waxing gibbous potteryI convert images from my travel photographs into paper stencils and silkscreen patterns which are then applied using slip and underglaze to wheel thrown and handbuilt pots. The images transfer imperfectly to the surface of the pot, hinting of worn plaster walls and peeling paint. I work primarily in earthenware which uses less energy to fire and produces bright colors in clay and glazes. My forms are sturdy and comfortable, designed for the daily grind but reminiscent of a faraway place.waxing gibbous potterywaxing gibbous pottery

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!
