the vintage whites market

Last Saturday I went to The Vintage Whites Market (VWM) and it was so fun!
My friend Sara and I started going to these markets a few years ago and we LOVE them.
I am so thankful for Jana and Vanessa for creating this fun shopping EVENT for Montana. 

This years Christmas market was held at the Fairgrounds in Kalispell.

These gals work so hard making the markets fun, pretty, and full of awesome vendors. 
There were AWESOME ombre Christmas trees at the entrance. What a welcoming!
 Fabric and ribbons made these CUTE tress!
At the entrance they also had a cute photobooth! Stop it. SO FUN!!!
Oh and Ryan Gosling stopped by... ha! Kidding.
There were fun props too (Ryan being one of them) and some "Hey Girl" sayings.
Mine said, "That vintage lamp will look so good in our house." haha.
Then we were off and shopping! 
The vendors did such a great job of decorating their space!
 Sweet Briar Cottage was beautiful and I even purchased a cute book from them.

2B Vintage had GREAT stuff! Including an epic star made from some sort of huge chain with lights.

Salvage Sisters is one of my favorite local shopping spots.

Rusty Bucket Antiques. 
Why yes, that is a truck bed door turned into a bench. What the what?!?!

Cobblestone Moon had great treasures.

The Daisy Cottage is another local favorite.

I loved this hutch from Huckleberry Heaven.

These huge letters were AMAZING!
I really wanted to go home & decorate for Christmas after the market! 
I didn't though, for the sake of Thanksgiving.

Camp-N-Cottage had the coolest item at the market (even though I didn't buy one...yet)-
vintage country road signs. Sara purchased "Friendship Lane".... amazing. 
She has a great booth at 4th Avenue By The Tracks

 One of my favorite things about the Vintage Whites Market is it's more of an event than just shopping.
They have music (the amazing and adorable Shayla preformed this time), food, activities,
and a place for people to sit and hang out. 
 Desserts by Sweet Notions.

So many treasures!

 Huge lighted (and glittered) sign.

The Vintage Whites Market is so fun! I've loved watching this market grow and get better every year. 
Make sure to "like" them on Facebook AND check out their gorgeous blog!
Their blog is full of beautiful inspiration and ideas!
 Vanessa, Jana, Ryan ;-) Me, Sara
Did you attend the VWM? If so, what did you buy?
Check back Thursday to see what I purchased and what I turned it in to!
P.S. If I missed a vendor or don't have the proper link PLEASE let me know.
