Hi friends!

Well, good news then. The Vintage Modern shop is going to be slinging our vintage wares at two markets next week. And it is even better news if you consider yourself a feminist, or like to drink beer.

Or all three. I mean, I really hope you like all three things. (But more so, the feminism thing.)

On Thursday March 8th, the shop is participating in the FeMNist Night Market at the Grain Belt Bottling House in NE Minneapolis. The event is from 5-10pm and will feature female Minnesota artists, makers and businesses. We will be up on the second floor of the building, set up as part of the Wellness Lounge. So come chill out and say hi!

 

The event is at the Grain Belt Bottling House in NE MPLS from 5-10pm. Click  here  for details.

The Vintage Modern shop will also be at Refind Vintage Market at Modist Brewing in the North Loop of Minneapolis on Sunday March 11th. The event is from 12-5 pm and will feature a curated selection of vintage sellers. So beer + vintage = a very good Sunday.

The FeMNist Night Market is being put on by Still Kickin, Nora McInerny and The Coven.

Still Kickin is a charity founded by Nora McInerny and her friend, Lindsay. After Nora lost her husband to brain cancer, she created this nonprofit organization inspired by his favorite thrift store shirt. By selling t-shirts and other merchandise, Still Kickin is able to create “a safety net for other awesome people who find themselves going through awful things.” Every month, they pick a Still Kickin Hero and “give them the proceeds from our merchandise sales, donation-based workouts and other events held both in the Twin Cities area and around the country.

And on personal note, I am a big fan of Nora's writing. Her book, It's Okay to Laugh: Crying is Cool Too, meant a lot to me. The book is about love, grief, beauty, pain and all the other messy stuff in-between. Writing about grief is hard, and Nora does it with beauty and honesty. It made me laugh and cry, as promised. It is definitely worth a read. I've recommended it to just about everyone I know.

The Coven is a "collaborative community and co-working space for women and those who identify as non-binary" in Minneapolis. The community offers events and workshops and strives to empower its members to "become the absolute best version of [themselves] through connection, collaboration, and content."

The Refind Vintage Market is hosted by Minneapolis Craft Market and the vintage boutique, THE KEEP. According to their site, THE KEEP was founded "to bring a modern aesthetic to vintage clothing." The founders, Kathryn and Latricia, believe "the best looks come from mixing the PAST with the PRESENT."

Hope to see you next week! The shop will have some exclusive, new-to-you vintage merchandise available at these markets.

Let’s Take Our Relationship to the Next Level…Come Shop the Vintage Modern shop in IRL!

Hi friends.

Whew. We’ve been busy. Our apologies for being a little MIA lately.

But we haven’t forgotten about you! We’ve just been busy scouting new-to-you vintage home décor, as well as refinishing more fabulous, vintage furniture.

We added another vintage dresser to the site last week. Our Stormy Sky Chic Upcycled Wood Dresser is painted and distressed with a light grey chalk paint. We also added some sparkly, crystal knobs to amp up that shabby chic factor. Grab it here for just $140.

We also have a beautiful buffet that is almost finished, and we are super excited to show it off.

Show it off we shall, and that’s where you come in. We know you love shopping online, but we also know you like to get out from behind that computer screen sometimes.

So if it feels like it's time to take our relationship to the next level, we have to say, we couldn’t agree more. 

The Vintage Modern shop will be selling our vintage wares, including furniture, clothing, accessories, home décor and a small crop of succulents, at the Minne-Mile NightMarket on Saturday June 3rd from 5-10 pm.

The event is hosted by the Minneapolis Craft Market, and along with our shop, there will be over 25 vendors selling vintage and upcycled merchandise. 

So don’t be shy! Come out to South Minneapolis on June 3rd and shop the Vintage Modern shop IRL.

And don’t worry, we always bring flowers. ;)

This cute little cactus and other vintage merchandise will be available exclusively at the Minne-Mile NightMarket on Saturday June 3rd. See, we said we'd bring flowers?!
