VINTAGE JUNK MARKETS VS ANTIQUE MALL SHOPPING

The newest trend in decorating seems to be shopping at vintage markets and junk shows. These Vintage Shopping  venues pop up every couple months or quarterly all over the valley and they draw crowds..  I myself prefer shopping at Antique Malls where everyday is a Vintage Market, though I have been known to do my own impulse shopping at a few pop ups around the valley. I actually like attending Pop up markets, they  have a large selection of ” rusty gold ” and you can get some wonderful decorating ideas and DIY projects for your own making. I usually go to the vintage markets on the last day, I am not a fan of crowds.

Vintage markets entice impulse shopping you have no time to think about your purchase because tomorrow the venue will be gone so be careful.  Impulse shopping is great for the vendors not so good for the shopper, if you are not careful you will end up with many items you cannot use, but on the bright side, you just might become a vendor yourself one day. junk2junk3junk4

If you do not want to wait for the next market, Any of these Vintage Market Items could be purchased from an Antique Mall at fractions of the pop up venues. Remember most of the vendors from the Vintage Markets rent space at local Antique Malls in your area.

I like to Save money and shop at local Antique Malls where everyday is a Vintage Market. You want to redecorate or find a special treasure to re purpose you don’t have to wait 3 months or pay admission you  just have to  drive to the local Antiques Mall.  Prices at Malls are much more reasonable than pop up markets, especially for big items. I have seen buffets, and hutches at Vintage Market priced 3 times what I would pay at an Antique  Mall.  At most Antique Malls you can ask to hold a large item while you go home to take measurements, or just envision the item in you home, and most will allow layaway on items priced over  $100.
