VTGCLT is popping up on November 18th at The Fillmore for the sixth 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 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!
