Shop Shabby Chic at the Vintage Marketplace

Vintage Marketplace is one of the many flea markets that line the streets of Branson but the variety and quality of its products is what sets it apart from the rest.

Located right off the strip across from the Hampton Inn and Faith Life Church, Vintage Marketplace is a hodge podge of antiques, uniquely crafted housewares and collectibles that can only be described as “shabby chic.”

I wandered through the market trying not to pick up a million different things that I would have loved to have bought and used for my home and wedding decor and I’m betting you’ll feel the same way. Each booth is rented out by different individual sellers and they are absolutely packed with awesome goods that you won’t find anywhere else.

One of my most favorite finds of the day was a very old and intricately designed leather purse that looked like it came from another century. It was in pristine condition and I found it hidden underneath a host of other antiques atop a wooden dresser. It’s finds like these that make flea markets so much fun!

In addition to having tons of great antiques and collectibles, Vintage Marketplace also has some amazing new and handcrafted items including elaborate metal and wooden wind chimes, chalkboard home decor and handcrafted birdhouses and feeders. I was really close to buying one of the rustic-looking bird houses near the front of the shop. They were very eye catching, sturdy and would have made a perfect housewarming gift for my Dad’s new mountain home but I kept telling myself, “You’re at work…you’re at work…you can shop later…”

Not shopping was very difficult but somehow I made it out without cracking my wallet open. I’ll be back though.

The Vintage Marketplace is a great place to find that perfect nostalgic gift, pick up base pieces for your own handmade decor or just escape the rain. Whatever the reason may be, definitely stop in for a peek at some amazing merchandise.
