Posted by | events, vendor spotlight | No Comments

Come out and spend the day shopping with over 80 vintage & handmade vendors. 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 Laci from Some Things Wong to her first Vintage Charlotte Summer Market.  We love her message of love and kindness and how beautifully it is expressed through her forever flowers.  Here is Laci with her story:

VTGCLT Summer Market, Something's Wong

Some Things Wong started a few years ago as a tiny little online shop that sold hair bows and earrings. It was fun for a while until I, Laci Wong, the owner and designer, felt something bigger stirring in my heart. I wanted to create something special that people would be able to not only buy for themselves but for other people as a token of kindness, and I wanted to be able to create enough revenue that I could give some of my proceeds away to good causes. After much thought and a bit of trial and error, in early 2015 forever flowers were born.

Something's Wong

I just love that in the same way that you might swing by the farmers market or trader joes and grab a bouquet, you can do the same in my shop, but customize them just the way you want, and bonus, they never die! The true heart of forever flowers is rooted in kindness and I have been overwhelmed at the way people have used my bouquets to spread just that to so many people. I have had the opportunity to send flowers to moms that have a babies in the NICU, friends who have lost loved ones, sisters waiting for surgery, from husbands to wives, sons to mothers, students to teachers. It has been inspirational to me to watch people genuinely and tangibly show loving kindness to others.

VTGCLT Summer Market, Something's Wong

10% of all the revenue from my shop goes to what I believe to be very worthy causes. This year I have been able to send money to World Relief, a refugee resettlement agency, and Servlife International, an organization that works in Nepal and has been able to bring a lot of relief to the people there after the most recent earthquake.I absolutely love doing this, and I truly love partnering with my customers to spread kindness literally all over the world. I can’t wait to see you all at the summer market, please stop by and say hi!

Summer Market Vendor Spotlight: Inherited

Posted by | events, vendor spotlight | No Comments

VTG CLT is popping up at the warehouse located at 2205 N Tryon, Charlotte, NC for the fourth annual Summer Market on July 24th (VIP Shop) and 25th (Market Day)!

We are really excited to welcome Sabrina from Inherited to the Vintage Charlotte Summer Market.  Her Summer collection is swoon worthy and we can’t wait to see it in person!  Here is Sabrina breaking down her curatorial choices:

All vintage vendors offer a unique perspective on the pieces we sell. Some of us stick to a specific era; others focus on collecting a particular type of item. Each of us are drawn to these things for a reason, and the way we curate tem tells a story.

Inherited’s intention is to offer pieces that have a sense of romance and wearability — the kinds of clothes you’d inherit if you had a wild, world-traveling great-aunt or a burlesque-dancer-turned-botanist grandmother (if anyone does have this kind of relative, I’m filled with envy).
InheritedSpotlight
I’ve pulled together a Summer Capsule with pieces from the 1940s to the 1970s that capture a bit of what Inherited offers: neutral-toned separates that can be mixed and matched; fabrics like crochet lace, linen and embroidered silk that are nice to look at and touch; and bold prints that are eye-catching without being overwhelming.
InheritedSpotlight2
This capsule is made for summer vacation: all of the pieces can be thrown on without too much fuss. There’s an embroidered caftan you can wear over your bikini, a few dresses that can be worn to dinner or brunch, loose blouses that let you breathe on a hot day, and silky tap pants perfect for staying in. The prints and textures add some exotic appeal, so you can feel like you’ve traveled the world while sitting on your back porch.

The items in this capsule collection (and many others!) will be available at the Vintage Charlotte Summer Market. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Summer Market Vendor Spotlight: Formation Design Studio

We are really excited to welcome Amanda from Formation Design Studio to her first Vintage Charlotte market.  Amanda’s goal is to design your favorite garments.  All of us wanted to wear her effortless, relaxed garments, and we think you will too. Here is Amanda sharing her journey, and what drives her as a designer:

IMG_2661
 I graduated with a BFA in Fashion Design from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in 2005. Soon after I was designing for Urban Outfitters. After many years with the company, I decided to move back home to North Carolina in 2010, continuing to freelance design. It was then that I branched out on my own with Formation Design Studio.

IMG_2737My design aesthetic is influenced heavily by my past design experiences with Urban Outfitters, but I have also tried to brand my line more individually… designing and making more organically. It is important to me that I deliver garments that are long lasting, with quality and edge. IMG_3232
I believe that it is important to understand where and how your garment came to life. My designs are made in small quantities with a non-seasonal approach throughout the year, so each piece is unique and wonderful. There is a dedication to quality and detail in every garment. Each piece is made by me, in my North Carolina studio.  Unlike mass production, there is something special about knowing that you have one of just a few pieces made. You and I are part of something that was developed with care, precision, and passion. I want for you to go back to your closet for this “favorite” time and time again.

I love junk stores and I was always combing little places on the back roads of South Carolina for my latest decorating finds on the weekends. People always say that they would have never thought to buy that or they wouldn’t know what to do with it. And what can I say, some of the things I like can be downright odd. But I found out there are tons of people like me, that like these things too. So I thought I would share some of these items here! The more I find and use these items, the less tolerance I have for anything new. There is so much already out there just waiting to be discovered, cleaned up, and loved!
