Randolph Street Market + Modern Vintage Chicago Extravaganza! 10.17-10.19

Oct2014-MVC+RSM-finalWith Randolph Street Market’s 2014 summer season officially in the books, vintage FANatics are clamoring for more and Randolph Street Market’s October 17-19, 2014 extravaganza is the answer! Being billed as the first Randolph Street Market all-inclusive two-fers, this two for one show combines the fashion and jewelry spectacular that is Modern Vintage Chicago with home design, antiques, artwork and more that Randolph Street Market is known for. By joining forces, these two events combine and conquer- kicking off the Fall season in high style!

 

Set within the historic Plumber’s Hall, home to Randolph Street Market’s monthly events, 125+ vendors will take over the entire facility. The 9,000 square foot ballroom will boast high fashion and jewels, while the remaining areas will offer only the finest furniture, artwork, accessories, decor, fancy foods and more!

 

Friday night, October 17, the Market will play host to a Modern Vintage party in the Ballroom with early shopping and a drink included for $20 per ticket. There will be fashion installations, live music and entertainment, makeovers, and light bites for attendees to enjoy. This ticket includes entry into the Market all weekend long!

 

General admission will commence October 18+19, in which guests and shoppers will enjoy an Oktoberfest theme with cider, German beers, pumpkins and Fall foliage amongst their favorite vendors including: Diane Landry Vintage Fashion, JS Lighting Sculptures, Mary Resek Antiques, Richard’s Fabulous Finds, Shop NOV, Vert Moderne and more!

 

By reservation only, shoppers can attend the 12 pm Lunch n’ Learn October 18, with the legendary fashion icon and lecturer, Nena Ivon. The presentation entitled: “Cloth to Couture: The Little Black Dress Story,” will tell the historical tale of the coveted “little black dress” and how to find that perfect fit for holiday gatherings! ($20 per person with boxed lunch)

 

“Combining the bi-annual Modern Vintage Chicago event with Randolph Street Market’s October show was a natural fit for our vendors and shoppers,” says Sally Schwartz, Randolph Street Market founder and curator. “Offering a VIP event Friday provides early buy opportunities moving into the full celebration of style all weekend long!”

 

This  Market, aptly dubbed “the Barneys of vintage” is a huge celebration of fashion, home design, antiques, artwork, music, food and great people watching. Since its inception, the Market has doubled its number of dealers with 250+ quality pickers, tripled in size encompassing 8 acres of one of a kind treasures, and welcomed more than 90,000 shoppers in 2013. Thanks to Sally Schwartz, The Randolph Street Market put Chicago and the Midwest on the map for well-curated antiques and vintage offerings as the first market of its kind in the Chicago area.

 

Since its debut, the Randolph Street Market has drawn thousands of loyal followers from Beijing to New York City appealing to collectors, art buyers, stylists, and vintage aficionados including celebrity shoppers, Vince Vaughn, Nate Berkus and Sophia Bush.
