Vintage Market Days organizers Amy Scott and Dianna Brown discovered an interest in vintage bazaars at a young age. As a child, Dianna frequented neighborhood garage sales to find items that she repurposed into decorations for her "pretend house." Meanwhile, Amy visited the Tulsa Flea Market with her mother and great-aunt, who collected Depression glassware and helped her start her own vintage collections.
As adults, Amy and Dianna organize upscale vintage events several times a year at indoor and outdoor locations throughout Oklahoma. In turn, franchisees have brought these shopping extravaganzas to at least eight other states. Shoppers can examine architectural salvage, peruse vintage home-decor items, or drape themselves in clothing and jewelry from yesteryear so they won't stand out as a tourist on time-traveling trips. And to complement the vintage wares, vendors also sell original art and handmade jewelry.
