We all know how it goes—September hits and the rest of the year becomes a blur. Whether you’re getting a head start on your holiday shopping or simply want to peruse the aisles for what inspires you, Vintage Market Days (VMD) has the perfect finds during “Celebrate”, hosted Thursday, September 29-Saturday, October 1.
Plus, we have a special surprise in store for our North Alabama friends. Keep reading for all the details.
Scope out seasonal decor + the latest trends
In case you’ve never been to a Vintage Market Days event, buckle up and get ready for a 3-day shopping frenzy celebrating and supporting small businesses. There is something for everyone to find, including vintage, antique, re-purposed and handmade items like:
- Home decor
- Seasonal items
- Children’s things
- Outdoor furnishings
- So much more
Vintage Market Days is also celebrating 10 years—it’s the perfect reason to celebrate if you ask me.
Shop for a cause + support small biz
One of the best parts of VMD is how it gives back. 100% of their bag hold proceeds and a portion of all ticket and merchandise sales benefit Designs for Hope and The Dannon Project—local organizations who make a difference in Birmingham through restorative support and clean drinking water.
Plus, it empowers guests to shop small through their curated vendors. Take it from Sherri Leal of Mad Dash Mixes:
“Vintage Market Days is truly a top notch event! We have worked with them for 10 years and are continually impressed with their level of dedication, not only to their customers but to us, their vendors as well. Be sure and come out to see us.”-Sherri Leal, Owner, Mad Dash Mixes
Become an early bird
If you’re wanting special shopping hours and the biggest selection, Thursday’s VIP hours are for you. From 4-8PM, VIP ticket holders will get to shop their hearts out (early) so they don’t miss a thing. Plus, the first 100 VIP presale ticket holders will receive a VMD swag bag with the first 25 bags randomly containing market cash (a gift card that is valid for all vendors) valued between $5 – $100. Oh! Did we mention a free bag check, giveaways and cupcakes to celebrate 10 years of Vintage Market Days?
The early bird also gets the worm on Friday during Early Shop—the first 25 shoppers will receive an exclusive VMD tote.
Whatever ticket option you choose: free parking and a guaranteed good time will be provided.
