At noon on Sunday, August 22nd, I queued up at the end of a line that stretched around The Congress Theatre for The Vintage Bazaar. Over 100 vendors had loaded their wares into the theatre for this modern pop-up flea market. I went armed with my camera to scope out the event.
The Congress was packed with vintage resellers and, by the time I made it into the theatre, a crowd hungry for deals. Katherine Raz and Libby Alexander organized an eclectic group of vendors for this one-day event. In addition to the racks of vintage clothing, there was also a fair share of vintage furniture and housewares.
The theatre was so packed with eager shoppers that nagivating the aisles between vendors was a bit tricky. And, due to the darkness of the Congress, photography was a bit of a challenge as well. Judging by the number of people I saw carrying purchases, the crowd and the heat in the theatre did not hinder sales.
