Euro Vintage Market
I’m so excited to share this project that has been keeping me quite busy the last couple months: introducing…Euro Vintage Market! Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like – a market filled with European treasures, right here in Portland, Oregon.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’ll likely remember the shows I’ve held in our home these last couple years. I would clear out all but one room of our main floor and replace all my personal collections with items available for sale. Then I’d open up my doors to shoppers and watch as many of my European picks walked out the door with their happy new owners. So much fun!
While I thoroughly enjoyed having a show at my own house, it was quite taxing in terms of prep time and post-party clean-up, not to mention the fact that my poor hubby and fur kids had to live in a virtual store for the month before and after the event (yep, that’s how long it took me to set up and tear down).
That got me thinking…what if I moved this event off-site, outside my home? Then I thought, why not invite some other vendors who specialize in European goods and give our customers even more choice? Et voilà, witness the birth of Euro Vintage Market.
If you’ve always wanted to shop the flea markets of Europe but haven’t made it across the big pond yet, then this market is for you! If you’ve been to Europe to shop the fleas but didn’t find that one special item or it was too large to bring home in your suitcase, then this market is for you!
On August 20th, a select group of vendors will gather under one roof – the roof of Elephants Deli on SW Corbett, to be exact – to bring their very best European vintage and antiques. This will be a truly unique market so jot it down in your calendars.
To wet your appetites and give you a sense of the types of items you can expect at Euro Vintage Market, I’ll be sharing vendor profiles over the next two months so check back on the blog and follow along on the Facebook page or the FB event page for details, updates and sneak peeks.
