Heads up to new school love birds who love the old school look: The next incarnation of The Vintage Bazaar will be a boutique, wedding-themed pop-up market at the Empty Bottle on Saturday, January 21, from 11AM-4PM.
This market they're calling "Gettin' Hitched" offers a unique spin on the traditional bridal shopping experience. In similar curation style to their Holiday Market, this boutique market will feature a crop of 15 vintage dealers and vintage-inspired wedding vendors. Shop for formalwear, tableware, decor, paper and party supplies, jewelry, all hand-picked with forever partnerships in mind.
And it is getting to be wedding season so you can expect wedding caterers, DJs, photographers, florists, and more that specialize in vintage-inspired touches. The show offers a niche alternative for brides, grooms, wedding planners, stylists and events planners to connect with vendors and dealers who specialize in merchandise related to celebrations of true love for every stripe.
The vendor lineup includes: catering from Antique Kitchen, accessories and lingerie from Bombshellshocked, jewelry from Bunny's Trunk Show and Estate Chicago, gowns and dresses from Archives Vintage and Dethrose Vintage, servingware and rental china from Dinner Party, party decor and wedding accessories from Houndstooth Vintage, Hot House Market, Piccadilly Prairie, Mr. Modern and more.
The Saturday afternoon market will feature brunch cocktails presented by the Empty Bottle, plus DJ entertainment by Toast & Jam. Admission is $5. All attendees must be 21+ unless accompanied by parent.
