The Urban Vintage Market is set for July 28 and 29 at the All Saints Chapel in downtown Raleigh.
The market will have antique, vintage, retro, mid-century, salvage and industrial goods. The Handmaidens, who put on the pop-up market, describe it as a “top notch, drool worthy, indoor, rusty junk market with an urban flair.” That’s right, it’s indoor – as in, air conditioned.
Hours are 6-9 p.m. Friday, July 28 (these are early bird hours and entry is $5) and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, July 29 (free entry).
All Saints Chapel is located at 110 S. East St. Get more details at thehandmademarket.com.
