Last summer, a new vintage marketplace was held in Wasilla. It offered Alaska artists a venue to showcase and market their original, upcycled and restored antique and vintage goods. Whether they were looking for new ways to furnish and accent their home or looking for ways to bring new life to favorite pieces, curious shoppers visited the Menard Center in Wasilla for a look around. What they saw left a great impression, and both visitors and vendors looked forward to this year’s event.
Though last year’s event founder was suddenly called out of state this winter, Bubbling Brook Farmhouse picked up the torch. Their business specializes in rustic upholstery featuring European and American grain and feed sacks, many of them originating in the early to mid-1900s!
Building on last year’s successful foundation, Bubbling Brook Farmhouse Vintage Market opens its doors on July 15th and 16th at the Menard Center. Some new features at this year’s Vintage Market will be a VIP shopping hour, live music and food trucks, as well as a Model A Car Club Show.
For mothers caring for infants and small children, a semi-private area with comfortable furniture will be set aside, to rest and refresh while shopping.
Children of all ages can enjoy getting their faces painted and enjoy some parent-supervised chalk drawing on the chalkboard wall.
More than fifty vendors were selected through a careful application process, to ensure that shoppers have access to only the best vintage, antique, upcycled and handmade products.
Offerings will include but not be limited to farmhouse-style signs, repurposed hardware and junk, vintage and vintage-style clothing, old furniture brought to life again, unique jewelry, handcrafted soaps and candles, farmhouse pillows and so much more.
Plan to bring your friends and family and spend the day enjoying a unique shopping experience.
VIP tickets are $25, allowing one to shop from 8am-9am on Saturday, ahead of the crowds, for the first pick of unique items. Regular tickets for adults, 18 and up, are $5. 17 and under are free. Sunday admission is free to all.
