They sell everything from antiques, furniture, vintage clothing, jewelry, art, and more! The April 2012 show was the largest to date, with over 200 vendors. Vendor’s arrived in the wee hours of the morning with trucks loaded with their latest finds and best creations. They quickly unloaded filling up several streets in the historic district. As the sun rose tents made of lace, burlap and vintage fabric lined the
streets. Each one resembling a beautifully decorated boutique.
We love these chairs! Turned legs and recovered in fresh white fabric, SO ROMANTIC!
This beautiful chair, was actually a matching set. The fabric was so vibrant and the gold trim...glamorous!
The Vintage Soul’s booth, was a favorite by many at the market. The owner, Debbie Mangual,
brings a romantic feel to her booth with a lace covered tent, fresh flowers, vintage clothes
and custom linens.
Outdoor furniture was available in every style imaginable. Old benches with white chippy paint, iron tables and chairs planted with gorgeous flowers all at affordable prices.
Karen and Kathy of Chic & Shabby started the day with two booths filled with furniture and home décor. Customers loved their style and great prices.

Life is such an adventure is it not? I cannot begin to think what it would be like without these artful journeys. I live in Brandon, Florida a recent transplant from Polk County after divorcing a couple of years ago. Wow what a difference over this way. I am a mother of four boys, the last one left at home and I have two wonderful grand babies. I have always been an artist and yes it took me a very long time to call myself that. In one form or the other being creative has always had a part in my life. I guess more of an escape in the roller coaster of life at times.

Wholesale inquiries welcome.
It's time to get ready for Spring. Let's start with a few ideas for the front porch.
1. Create a backdrop or focal point with weathered fences, bamboo or an old door.
2. An old window is repurposed to a shelf. Perfect for small plants.
3. Mix textures, rod iron, chippy painted items, rusty metal and feathery plants make for an eclectic look.
Changing a few items to reflect the different seasons doesn't have to be expensive. Visit thrift stores, flea markets and shop garage sales to find your items. The possibilities are endless.
Hi I'm Kathy, owner of Vintage Finds Magazine. I hope you enjoy these vintage shops and markets.
