Flea markets are my kryptonite! I love them, but all too often I find myself powerless to the charms of tattered recipe books, rusted metals, aged wood and charming fabrics. A few of my good friends took their love of vintage and turned it into something magical- The Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer.

The Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer is a one-of-a-kind vintage vendor fair that melds community, creative inspiration and nostalgia. In addition to being an avid attendee, this year I had the opportunity to photograph the event.

The vintage inspired Natrona Bottling Company van was a perfect fit and kept the many, many shoppers hydrated during their intense vintage shopping.

For its sixth edition, the PGH Vintage Mixer added a twist- a Friday night “Night Owl” preview event/early bird special, complete with live music from The Gothees and guest emcee and Pittsburgh drag queen Alora Chateaux.
