Good Times at the Vintage Whites Market

I almost can't believe that this time last week I was rolling into Salt Lake City to spend the weekend at The Vintage Whites Market. Where did this week go?!

I had a lovely time at the VWM and enjoyed teaching my first interior styling class, meeting new friends, catching up with old ones, and doing a tiny bit of shopping too. I even managed to run around before the market opened and take some photos to share.

I wish I had been able to get a better shot of the entry- 3 Dotters Vintage Rentals did an amazing job. There were bikes and globes hanging from the ceiling!

Love the VWM totes- they're handmade!

These old educational charts from asian countries were so cool. C.G. Sparks had a great selection of antiques and beautiful new imported items as well.


Ande Monster was one of my favorite booths- they had a great mix of vintage clothing and home goods,  and their signs with the chalk lettering were amazing.



Cathie from Flea Attitude had a booth filled with great things, and she really helped me out of a bind by loaning me some shelves to use in my class. So thankful.

The ladies from Vintage Cupcake Co kept everyone going with delicious treats and charming old fashioned sodas.

I didn't even look to see how much this amazing sign from Coquille Vintage was, but I knew I had to at least have a photo of it.

3 Craft Chicks had so many great things- aren't these suitcases beautiful? 



Nathan, from Funky Junk, hamming it up for the camera. His wife Jennifer, puts on the Funky Junk Show and always has one of the best booths at the Farm Chicks Show. I always love getting to see them so it was a great surprise to find them here with all the wonderful things in their booth.


I love love love these tipi's from Cat & Quail! If I had kids I would have bought one of these in a heart beat.  Their booth was great looking too.

The flowers and decor in the Ruche booth were so beautiful! Designed by Ashley from Tinge, they were the perfect match for the Ruche brand. If you're in Salt Lake- hire her for your next event, she's amazing!

Sam and Beth from Ruche, and Ben from Folk magazine- some of my lovely new friends from the weekend! Ruche and Folk both sponsored the event- thanks friends!

Loved that all the tables for shoppers to sit at were topped with vintage linens.

John from The Cabinet of Curiosity had a booth filled with all sorts of unusual things- always my favorite.

I even got to have a little reunion with Caytlyn, who I met at Alt this year. She and her husband run Dots & Stripes and  make the cutest wood cutout signs. Their booth design was so simple and looked amazing- all those bright colors made me happy every time I walked by.

My favorite vintage clothing booth was definitely 58 Bluebirds. The very stylish proprietor (and another new pal), Sonja, had the best selection of  clothes and accessories and was so helpful- loaning out things for us to use in the vintage fashion show.





I was so impressed with the vignettes that the students from my workshop created. I especially loved hearing their thoughts behind the displays. The woman who created the vignette on the red shelf even told a story about a family member through it, in spite of the fact she was working with items I had brought as props which she had no connection with. I had such a great time with the 'students'.

Before I left for the day I had to snap a photo of this charming rest room building. There were so many lovely old buildings all over the fairgrounds.
What a great time! If you ever have the chance to visit either the Salt Lake or Montana markets, I'd recommend it- it's one of my favorites!

I'll be back next week- sorry for the long stretch between posts, I should be back on a normal schedule now though.

Happy weekend!
