Searching for Vintage in Gainesville

vintagegainesville

Retro styles are everywhere on the interior decorating scene- mid-century modern, antique replicas, and so forth. You can buy new version of these things at furniture and home goods stores like Crate & Barrel, West Elm, and even Target….for a price! These reproductions are not always affordable and often lack character or quality.

If you’re searching for honest-to-goodness vintage finds in Gainesville, this upcoming event may be the perfect opportunity to find that vintage piece you’ve been looking for!

The Gainesville Pop-Up Vintage Market will take place next on April 6, 2018 at La Chua Vintage. The market is a recurring collection of vintage vendors that set up around Gainesville. The upcoming market will be a “happy hour” style experience, lasting from 5 PM to 10 PM.

When you’re looking for vintage finds, here are some things to keep an eye out for:

Quality is key – look for items that appear well-made and durable; skip furniture that is cracked or does not have a solid frame

Lackluster upholstery isn’t a dealbreaker – chairs can be reupholstered at home or sent to a shop to be worked on, so you’re not married to the current upholstery. Just keep in mind it is usually an investment.

Measure before you shop – furniture does not look the same way in a store as it will in your apartment, so sometimes it’s handy to keep your room measurements with you.

Be able to bargain – If you see a scuff or a scratch on something, that’s a bargaining point. Flea markets are great places to test your negotiating skills.
