Event: Vintage Market Day Nashville

     Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! I wanted to share several photos with you of my experience at the Vintage Market Days of Nashville over the weekend! If you haven't been, you definitely need to pencil this in for the next time. Actually, their next market in Nashville is in March and I would definitely make a trip if I were you. This was my first year attending and I was so happy to enjoy this market and take pictures for my blog to help promote this event. 

Vintage Market Days consisted of antiques, farmhouse decor, gifts, furniture, food vendors, and so much more. There were a lot of great vendors with a lot of great merchandise and ideas. I always enjoy events like this because it definitely inspires me to create my own masterpieces at home (haha at least I try anyways). This would be such a fun event with a big group of ladies or just strolling through by yourself is also fun. 

I enjoyed meeting several of the vendors and seeing  a lot of new booths I hadn't seen before at other local markets. There was definitely a good variety here as well. I hope you enjoy all of these ideas, just as much as I did. I hope you will consider attending this event next year around the Holidays but   also on March 16th-19th Vintage Market Days is coming back to Nashville at the same location at the Fairgrounds and I can't wait to see all of the Spring decor as well. Grab your friends and come down to Nashville for another great event! Thank you for the Vintage Market Days for having me!

Enjoy all of the displays, merchandise, and goods below :)
