We are pleased to share with you the twelve vendors who will be participating in the November 5th Urban Vintage Bazaar at Brown University!
Antiques in the Attic
A “vintage veteran” Diana has owned and operated her brick and mortar shop for years on Pontiac Ave. in Rolfe Square, Cranston but is no stranger to taking her goods on the road. Look for amazing costume jewelry, holiday collectibles, housewares and other unique gems! (Rumor has it she will share her space with another area “vintage veteran” – you’ll have to come by to see!)
Find Me a Memory
Yet another “vintage veteran” and another Diana; she is also no stranger to the antiques and collectibles business having sold in group shops and on-the-road at vintage events like this one for years! She is also the first person to tell me about this “new thing” eBay 15 years back, where she was savvy enough to start selling back in 1997! She will bring some select clothing and jewelry along with antique and collectible books and art to this venue. Visit her on-line any time at Find Me A Memory and The Library Cat.
The women of Gypsy refer to themselves as a “Roaming Resale Boutique” which means you can ONLY find them on the road at events such as this one! While they have a somewhat regular gig at SOWA Vintage Market, they are constantly updating their inventory with vintage and previously-owned fashions with an eye towards hard to find and hard-to-fathom-in-your-hands! designer goods at breathtakingly affordable prices! Check out their schedule here at Find Gypsy.
Guess What I Have
Those of you who miss the days when This and That Shop was a fixture on Wickenden Street will be so happy to see Mayra’s smiling face at Urban Vintage Bazaar! You will remember her as the sales person who usually helped you check-out but what you probably did not know is that she also sold her goods in the shop and has an amazing collection of items to share with you at this event! You can visit her on-line shop any time at Guess What I Have, but, visit her at the Bazaar for fresh vintage goods - clothing, jewelry, accessories and funky housewares - she has not even shared with anyone yet!
Unassuming academic and mom by day – incredible finder of mid-century chic items any time she goes hunting! Nimco has one of the most amazing collections of mid-century goodness – especially enamel – that I have ever seen! Luckily, she has no more room at her own house, but, her finding skills continue to enable her come home with goodies that she occasionally shares at pop up venues such as this one. Consider yourself VERY lucky….
NJ Nan’s Antiques
Nancy has an eye for beautiful items - a talent she luckily uses to share her finds with you! In fact, we met as I was drooling over some of her fantastic holiday pieces as she stocked her space at a local antiques mall. No stranger to taking her wares on the road, she will bring vintage jewelry, housewares, linens and books to the Bazaar on November 5th!
S & M Salvage
This couple is no stranger to collecting vintage or doing live events, but, they are just getting their vintage items out for the first time as S & M Salvage at our venue! What does this mean? Two people with awesomely cool, and totally FRESH vintage stock of industrial items and lighting among other things for the first time at the Urban Vintage Bazaar. How can you resist? I cannot wait to see what they bring!
Natalie opened her store, Shoppe Pioneer, on South Main Street earlier this year and it is already making a big splash in the vintage and fashion scenes of Providence! Although her shoppe is in the heart of the RISD campus, she will travel ALL THE WAY up the hill (RI inside joke) to Brown to show off an exclusive selection of her vintage and re-sale designer goodies for you!
We really, really wanted to have a “record guy” at our event and are lucky to have one of the best, Studebaker Hawk! Some of you may know him from his DJ-ing skills, others may know him from his appearances selling at the Rock and Roll Yard Sales and the rest may simply be friends with him on Facebook as the guy has more friends on Facebook than anyone else I know! Check out his page here, or, send him a friend request as I am sure if you want to be his friend (and who wouldn’t?) he will accept! We can’t wait to see - and hear! - the vinyl goods he shows up with!
The Red Velvet Shoe
I know no one else who is as careful and meticulous with her vintage items as Michelle from The Red Velvet Shoe. She only buys the best and only sells if items are in impeccable condition and merchandised to perfection! Warning: beware of getting sucked into her booth for hours as once you start looking you just can’t stop! She will bring her classic clothing, accessories and jewelry, but, is also bringing some fun linens, books and records and I, for one, cannot wait to see what she has! You can see what she is up to – selling on-line or in-person, or, musing about the vintage world- on her blog, Tales of a Vintage Wardrobe.
I’m not quite sure how Deb from Vintage Haven does it, with spaces at several local antique malls, participation in a number of pop-up events and even selling at the local outdoor flea, she still has miles of inventory to share with you! (did we mention she also works full time?) She has not only amazing energy but a great eye for vintage and antiques, and will be bringing a terrific assortment of clothing, jewelry and accessories, along with vintage linens, lace, buttons and patterns! Her stuff will have you drooling as she has a special affinity for textures and colors that will have you swooning in awe! Oh, and have we mentioned yet she is also on-line? Visit her any time at Vintage Haven.
Carmen and Ginger
I will be bringing an assortment of vintage clothing, accessories and jewelry with an emphasis on funky coats, leather jackets, day dresses, fun, colorful brooches, necklaces and earrings and handbags galore! I will have items for both men and women – mad men, rockabilly, groovy, mod, and disco trends will be well-represented. I will likely bring along some mid-century pottery and serving items as well, just to keep you surprised and wowed! You can visit me any time at Carmen and Ginger.
