Are you a bride planning a vintage-themed wedding and can’t seem to find enough milk glass vases and mason jars or don’t know where to get your hands on a vintage typewriter and other old-timey trinkets you’d like to incorporate in your decor? OR, are you a bride who recently said “I do” at a vintage-themed wedding, and now you’re left with dozens of glass goblets and mismatched china plates, and you haven’t clue what to do with them?
Well, consider today your lucky day, because I have a cool solution for both types of brides: Allow me to introduct you to the new Urban Flea Market in downtown Salt Lake City.
The brainchild of SLC resident Kate Wheadon, the Urban Flea Market is the perfect opportunity to dig out those dusty toss-aways taking up space in your attic, basement, or garage and give them new life and a new home, or to browse the flea market and find a new treasure to call your own.
Not only is the The Urban Flea Market a super cool, super smart idea for all Salt Lakers, it’s especially cool and smart for brides and grooms. As Wheadon notes, the flea market “would be a great opportunity for brides to sell decorative items they used at their weddings, or for brides-to-be to find cool items to decorate their receptions.”
The first Urban Flea Market kicks off on Sunday, July 31 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Washington Square in downtown Salt Lake City. Additional flea markets are scheduled for August 14, September 11, and October 9.
Are you a buyer? The flea market is free to attend. Are you seller? Vendor spaces start at $30 for the day. For more information, check out the Urban Flea Market website.
I will be up bright and early on July 31st and walking down to the first flea market (grande skinny vanilla latte in one hand, oversized shopping tote in the other)–will you?
