About The Vintage Bazaar

The Vintage Bazaar (TVB) is a curated vintage market featuring distinctive vintage furniture, home decor, clothing, and accessories. The first TVB took place February 27, 2010 at the DANK Haus in Lincoln Square. Since then we’ve had markets in vacant storefronts, warehouse spaces, concert halls, and outdoor spaces — including a pop-up inside of the wildly popular Renegade Craft Fair.

Vintage Bazaar 9.9

The first two markets of The Vintage Bazaar’s monthly summer schedule brought out more shoppers than ever before and featured a unique blend of high and low vintage decor, designer home goods, furniture, clothing, jewelry, and oddments. The addition of food trucks, along with local food booths, music, and cocktails has morphed the market into a destination for foodies as well as vintage pickers, decor fanatics, and the fashion forward. We’re now preparing for our Sunday, August 12 market, happening this weekend.

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.
