A Very Vintage Market Returns
Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 21! The third annual Very Vintage Market takes place from 9 AM to 4 PM on the 100 to 500 blocks of Jefferson, the 200 blocks of N. Third and N. Fourth, and the 300 block of Valley. This event, presented by Titan Broadcasting and supported by Pinned It Creations, brings thousands of visitors to our great downtown in search of retro, reused, repurposed, and upcycled treasures. We can't wait!
