Hey y’all!

If you’re a regular around here, you know what Vintage Market Days is and my obsession with them. See my posts about their previous events here and here.

VMD of Lexington had their third event over Memorial day weekend two weeks ago. In case you’re unfamiliar with VMD, they are “an upscale vintage-inspired market featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home décor, outdoor furnishings, consumable yummies, seasonal plantings and a little more.” There are over 100 vendors from 19 different states, so there is bound to be something for everybody! A portion of the proceeds go to Old Friends Farm in Georgetown, KY where they rescue old racehorses and give them a home.

The theme for this event was “Old Fashioned Summertime.” This was the display that was set up when you first walked in. I helped work the event on Friday taking people’s tickets and giving them wristbands. We even got to wear these adorable aprons!

As usual, Friday is the “early buying event”. Tickets are $10 and are good for all weekend if you want to come back. Tickets for Saturday and Sunday are $5 and are also good for the remainder of the weekend. Friday and Saturday hours are 10am-5pm and Sunday is 10am-4pm. VMD is hosted at the Kentucky Horse Park in the covered arena, so even if it rains, it’s still on! Parking is $5, but is free if you come back and show your wristband.

I attended the event with my two best friends and my boyfriend, who was visiting Lexington for the first time. Eric and Mimi Griffith, the owners of the VMD Lexington franchise, were so kind to give me two tickets as a “thank you” for working for them the day prior. They put so much work into this event to make it amazing!

Each day the first 25 people in line get a bag full of coupons and other goodies. We were a part of the first 25 this time so we were excited to get those!

Going in I didn’t have anything specific in mind that I was looking to buy, just whatever popped out to me. Walking in, all of the booths were so beautiful! Here are some photos of the types of items the vendors sell:

One booth sold a wide variety of different flavors of coffee cakes that were absolutely delicious! Another sold worm castings as fertilizer (haha) and another drew pictures of your pets on the spot by simply looking at a photo.

I ended up buying a gorgeous studded white glass jar for $6.50 and a weathered wooden wall accent with metal detailing for $15. I should have bought more than one of those jars, they were so cute!

There were plenty of fantastic items for sale for everyone. All of the vendors were amazing and put so much work into getting set up. I would love to have my own booth at something like this one day! VMD of Lexington will be back in the fall for their fourth event October 26-28! I can’t wait to go for the fourth time!
