8 Vendors at VTGCLT Summer Market Selling Furniture and Plants
Vintage Charlotte Summer Market is on May 12, 2018, at Camp North End.
And just like that, it's summer market season.
Vintage Charlotte returns again this year with its gradually-growing Summer Market, this time with the shopping event boasting more than 80 regional and local vendors. Expect to browse beautiful handmade goods and unique vintage finds at the market's seventh installment; it will be located in the historic former Ford Model T factory at Camp North End (1824 Statesville Ave). The VTGCLT Summer Market is happening this weekend, on May 12, and food and drink suppliers such as HEX Coffee, Birdsong Brewing, Bleu Barn Bistro, The Dumpling Lady, and King of Pops will all be onsite. Find the food trucks in the boileryard under the water tower. And, of course, no event in the modern age would be complete without a place to snap an Instagram picture—keep an eye out for the installation by Studio Cultivate for your photo ops.
Though there will be a large variety of items for the sale at the event, we are highlighting those that will be selling furniture, large decor pieces, and plants. Time and again, designers tell Charlotte Home + Garden that some of their best furniture finds are either second-hand or spotted at markets such as this one. For those unique pieces and plants your home has been missing, look for these vendors at the market. Parking is free, but general admission from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. is $2. Early bird entry at 10 a.m. will cost you $7.
