What to do on Labor Day

Does Your Grandma Like Rock and Roll? Well then, We’ve Got Your Saturday Planned!

Flashlight Vinyl Market, Upcycling, What to do on Labor DayPamela DeweyComment

Hi friends.

I’m going to keep this week’s post short and sweet, or maybe short and a little punk rock. 

So did you hear? This Sat. Sept. 2nd, the Vintage Modern shop is offering its unique brand of vintage furniture, home décor and accessories at Flashlight Vinyl in NE Minneapolis from 10 am – 3 pm.

The Rock 'n' Roll Farmers Market will feature a mix of live music and DJs, makers, vintage sellers, food vendors/farmers and interactive activities from Flashlight Vinyl.

The Minneapolis Craft Market, who is organizing the event, stated, “This ain’t your grandma’s farmers market.” Which of course depends, on the kind of stuff your grandma is into. If she likes rock and roll, I say bring her along.

There is also a rumor burlesque dancers will be performing. I’m not exactly sure how that’s going work, but I'm looking forward to finding out!

For more details, see the event listing here.

Also each day this week on our Facebook and Instagram page, we are featuring vintage and upcycled items that will be available at the market. So if you aren’t following the shop already, head on over to Facebook and like us, or follow us on Instagram (or both, we don’t mind!), and you’ll get a sneak peek of the vintage goodies we’ll be offering this weekend. Like this dresser...

 This vintage oak dresser was made by Drexel. I added a coat of light grey and charcoal chalk paint, kept the original brass knobs added new square beveled brass-look pulls from Martha Stewart. It will be for sale Saturday at the Rock 'n' Roll Famers Market.
