We recently had our Mid Century Modern minds blown when we finally visited the Vintage Marché Vintage Market for the first time during their July sale. Known as Tampa’s Premier destination for vintage, repurposed, and one-of-a-kind finds- we couldn’t agree more!
The market is typically open the first weekend of every month – Sat 9-6 and Sun 9-5 – it features 30+ vendors with over 15 thousand square feet of unique treasures located at 2200 2nd Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33712. They even do a preview event on the Friday before the market opens called “First Dibs Friday” for $5 – there’s no excuse to let that treasure slip away.
Vintage Marché gets merchandise from various vendors that they refer to as Bees. Bees, or pickers travel the region and country searching for the best vintage furniture, lighting, home decor, art, jewelry, clothing, and anything nostalgic. Vintage Marché has adopted the Bee as its symbol and is prominently used in the logo and brand elements. The bee has been a symbol of immortality and resurrection from Ancient Egypt, and in Napoleon’s time as a symbol of industriousness and prestige. It can be found in Renaissance paintings as a symbol of love and is a modern-day symbol representing community. The Vintage Marché Bee symbolizes a collective of like-minded people coming together to resurrect and love all things vintage. A must-visit in St Pete for sure! The next Market is scheduled for Aug 6,7,8, 2021 – Everything you need to know is on their Website, or find them on Facebook or Instagram! Swoon!
