VINTAGE JUNK MARKETS VS ANTIQUE MALL SHOPPING
The newest trend in decorating seems to be shopping at vintage markets and junk shows. These Vintage Shopping venues pop up every couple months or quarterly all over the valley and they draw crowds.. I myself prefer shopping at Antique Malls where everyday is a Vintage Market, though I have been known to do my own impulse shopping at a few pop ups around the valley. I actually like attending Pop up markets, they have a large selection of ” rusty gold ” and you can get some wonderful decorating ideas and DIY projects for your own making.
Vintage markets entice impulse shopping you have no time to think about your purchase because tomorrow the venue will be gone. Impulse shopping is great for the vendors not so good for the shopper. You have no time for comparison pricing .
Save money, shop at local Antique Malls where everyday is a Vintage Market. You want to redecorate or find a special treasure to re purpose you don’t have to wait 3 months or pay admission you just drive to the local Antiques Mall. Prices at Antique Malls are much more reasonable than pop up markets, especially for big items. I have seen buffets, and hutches at Vintage Market priced 3 times what I would pay at an Antique Mall. At most Antique Malls you can ask to hold a large item while you go home to take measurements, or just envision the item in you home, and most will allow layaway on items priced over $100.
