market in the city. Both events received rave reviews from vendors and shoppers. The market is coming to The Ranch at the Larimer County Fairgrounds for its winter installment. This market will be bigger than the first two markets combined, boasting more than 80 market spaces.

“After the holiday rush is over, the winter can feel long, so we’re looking forward to bringing some brightness to the season with our event where fantastic small businesses can connect with shoppers for a weekend of fun and treasure hunting,” Rankin said. “We’re especially excited because of the reception we’ve received so far. People are enthusiastic because we have the opportunity to fill a need in Northern Colorado in which we can bring small businesses together to create a unique shopping experience for our visitors.”

Familiar Faces Return to Old House Vintage Market

Well-known vendors include The Pink Attic Cat, Rare Finds Warehouse and Old Cottonwood. The Pink Attic Cat of Littleton was recently chosen as one of Colorado’s favorite antique/vintage shops in Flea Market Style’s Readers’ Choice. Old Cottonwood is a husband and wife team specializing in vintage, retro, industrial, primitive, recycled, and project pieces. The Nebraska-based duo is one of two vendors from across Colorado’s borders.

Rare Finds Warehouse, a local leader in rustic, vintage and industrial merchandise, sponsored the September market, and is back to offer even more to the market’s shoppers, this time as a vendor and sponsor. Thanks to Rare Finds’ sponsorship of The Old House Vintage Market, shoppers will receive vouchers for free warm winter drinks, branded reusable shopping bags, a cupcake giveaway and the opportunity to have fun photos snapped with a vintage camper.
