This week we are talking about the 5 best reasons to shop vintage. I’m so excited to share this post with you guys today! One because I think it’s so true, but two because y’all we are featuring one of the best handmade vintage markets I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Just going thru the photos Whitnee sent me on what to feature on the blog makes me even more excited to attend in a few weeks! There is nothing like just hopping in the car, driving to a market like this and finding some wonderful treasures. You will be amazed if you attend this sale, amazing in the sense that sometimes you need to be refreshed, inspired, & just have some fun. I feel like lately between everything we have going on, we are not taking the time to rest or do fun things.
So when you are making your junkin’ plans for the next trip remember these reasons and MAKE SURE and put GypsyMoon Marketplace on your list! All the beautiful photos below are from this wonderful market located at Highland Stables in Kentucky.
1. Character – rust, faded paint, worn and aged.
2. Nostalgia – collections, items passed down, treasures etc.
3. Unique- handpicked vendors, vendors create their own storefronts, create items you can’t see at a department store
