This post is a long time coming. I have been asked lots of questions about Vintage Market Days and have been meaning to answer those questions since their spring event in late May, and I’m just getting around to posting! I’ve now sponsored two events with Linda, Melissa, and Ally (the beautiful faces behind Vintage Market Days of Greater Atlanta), and am finally going to answer your questions.
In the past, I’ve said Vintage Market Days is like everything you’d pin on Pinterest on your ‘Dream Home’ board. It’s a beautiful mash up of handmade, hand-crafted, farmhouse/fixer upper styled pieces, and choice vintage pieces like architectural salvage, old scales and wooden bowls, hand sewn and hand painted goods. What I have managed to leave out (leaving many of you confused) is how it started, what it is, and what on earth they need a photographer for!
One thing they do, and do extremely well, is hand pick their vendors, musicians and food trucks to create the most beautiful atmosphere. The atmosphere is at the event, but it is also in their marketing and social media posts – which is where I come in. I walk around and capture the beauty that is VMD, and they use the photos throughout the year to promote up-coming events (and make you wish you hadn’t missed the previous ones).
Linda and her team create beautiful wooden Farmhouse style signs for the home, which is how they originally connected to the founders of Vintage Market Days. They became fast friends. They caught the bug, and immediately were dreaming about running their own markets. What started as a beautiful dream has become an even more beautiful reality around the greater Atlanta area! Linda, Melissa and Ally’s desire is for their market to have vendors who not only produce beautiful products but who have beautiful souls. You come in and are hooked, not only because of the handcrafted, curated selection of your own “Farmhouse” dream home items, but because of the atmosphere, music, food trucks, and smiles.
