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.

Hope to see you Saturday, friends.

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?!
