The Old House Vintage Market is a well thought out shopping event taking into account our own extensive experiences as Vendors in Colorado-based antique, vintage, salvage, upcycled and handmade markets.
We gathered the best of our experiences and applied them to the creation of The Old House Vintage Market with total success: in 2017, The Old House Vintage Market was awarded Reader’s Choice for Best Festival in 5280 Magazine’s Top of the Town, made 3rd Place for Best Festival on the Denver A List and was featured in Flea Market Decor Magazine Holiday 2017 edition. In 2018, The Old House Vintage Market was mentioned as being “Worth The Trip” in Country Living Magazine’s January/February Edition and voted as one of America’s Top Flea Markets and Vintage Shows in the special Gardens edition for Flea Market Style Magazine.
Our hard work to create the best upscale market of the highest quality has resulted in high praise from our Vendors and Visitors as being a highly supported, happy and well attended market.
Our first and second markets were located at Parfet Park, in Golden, Colorado, in 2016. In 2017, we expanded to Loveland for an indoor market at The Ranch Event Complex and have had exponential growth ever since! In 2018, we hit the road with The Old House Vintage Market and expanded to Castle Rock not to mention adding an entirely new market into the mix with Smitten Wedding Market!
We recently welcomed Special Guest Liz Marie, of Liz Marie Blog and Jose Galvan, of White Cottage Farm, to The Old House Vintage Market. Liz Marie and Jose filmed their experience, from beginning to end, featuring Old House Vintage Market Vendors, customers, their Q&A Talks with our market crowd and so much more. We were honored to have Liz Marie and Jose and now consider them market friends that are always welcome back!
In 2010, the owner of The Old House Vintage Market, Bernadette Rankin, founded Old House Chic LLC, a business born from rescuing and repurposing antique and vintage elements salvaged from soon to be demolished, historic houses in North Texas.
Each of these homes held a treasure trove of history and with each piece that was salvaged, a story was saved. Old House Chic LLC was born out of a new found style of decorating with these rescued, salvaged and discovered pieces each with its own unique story- a style we called “Old House Chic.”
After being a vendor for several years, a love of the creative business community, mentoring new vendors and encouraging others to realize their dreams, took hold and we found a new home in Colorado and in the creation of The Old House Vintage Market. We love every part of what we do- supporting vendors, creating a high quality marketplace, meeting like minded visitors and the creation of an antique, vintage, salvage, upcycled and handmade community – all of which forms the heart of our blossoming market.
