Some Vintage Market Inspiration

It’s hard to believe that market day, September 24th, is already less than a month away! Our team has been keeping busy with all of the organizing and planning involved but we are beyond excited to spend the day alongside our 49 fabulous vendors! There are dozens of other vintage and handmade markets happening up and down the West Coast and we’ve been endlessly inspired by the creative folks out there, especially by some of our neighbors down South in Washington State. Barn HouseThe Farm ChicksRetreat Vintage Market and Seabold (to name a few!) are on our list of road trip stops in the year to come.
Now, many of our talented craftspeople and vintage sellers are seasoned pros when it comes to setting up their market displays, but this will be only the first or second show for a number of others. In fact, this is only the fourth show that we (Birch + Bird) have participated in and it’s high time that we get to work planning our own booth! To get the creative juices flowing, we thought we’d share some market display inspiration with you all…
Will you be joining us at Fieldstone Vintage Market on September 24th? Bring the whole family for a fun day supporting local small businesses and don’t forget that admission is by donation, in support ofCanuck Place Children’s Hospice. See you in a few weeks!

The Fieldstone Vintage Market Vendors

We had such a great night on Wednesday with our jurors and we feel so honoured that they took time out of their busy lives to come see what the Fieldstone Vintage Market is all about.  After long and careful consideration over wine and cheese, the jurors made their vendor selections for our fall market.  So, without keeping you waiting any longer, here are the Fieldstone Vintage Market vendors!
Vendors, if you have another 150 x 150 pixel logo that you would prefer us to use, please feel free to email it to us at birchandbird(at)gmail(dot)com.
Although we have filled the niches of photographers, baby hair clips & accessories and florists, we have decided to expand further into the field and applications will stay open until September 3rd. Feel free to spread the word! With the market a little more than a month away, you can browse through our vendors online shops now to see what they have to offer.  Be sure to mark September 24th off on your calendar and we look forward to seeing you at the Fieldstone Vintage Market!
