Posted by | April 26, 2018 | events, vendor spotlight | No Comments
VTGCLT is popping up on May 12th at Camp North End for the seventh annual Summer Market! Come out and spend the day shopping with over 80 of the region’s best vintage & handmade vendors.  $7 early bird entry at 10am // $2 general admission 11am-5pm.  

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.
