The Vintage Bazaar, the pop-up flea market which since its founding in 2010 has “popped up” in a series of vacant storefronts and event spaces in Chicago including Congress Theater, announced today the next incarnation of its traveling, temporary vintage markets: a boutique, wedding-themed pop-up market at the Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western Avenue, on Saturday, January 21, 2012 from 11am-4pm.
TVB’s “Gettin’ Hitched” edition offers a unique spin on the traditional. The boutique market will feature a supercurated crop of 15 vintage dealers and vintage-inspired wedding vendors of wedding fashions, tableware, decor, paper and party supplies, jewelry, and accessories, all hand-picked with forever partnerships in mind. Plus, 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. And because much of what will be presented at the market is second-hand, TVB’s “Gettin’ Hitched” offers affordable, second-hand solutions for those crafting a wedding on a budget or looking to celebrate their day with minimal environmental impact.
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, and Mr. Modern — and more.
