Local art event planners and pop-up trail blazers, The Handmaidens have been working on a few awesome, new projects for downtown Raleigh. As most of the fans of high quality craft have noticed, The Handmade Market took a little break this spring, as sometimes a re-boot is necessary to grow and keep things fresh.

And reboot we did! We have been researching successful events around the area and listening to various local business owners chat about what Raleigh needs and wants.

The industrial, vintage movement has crept into almost every scenario. Shop owners need new display ideas. Pinterest lovers want more choices. We have a brand new, vintage shopping event coming this August! We are talking about a top notch, drool worthy, INDOOR, rusty junk market with an urban flair in downtown Raleigh. This is going to be big for local businesses too because shoppers will drive miles to shop, dine and mingle throughout the two day event.

Urban Vintage will be premiering at Market Hall in Downtown Raleigh during the August First Friday, and the following Saturday August 7 & 8th.
