More than 175 creative artists from Arizona, California and surrounding areas are taking over WestWorld in Scottsdale from May 2 and 3.
The Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market will offer the ultimate vintage and handmade shopping experience, all while enjoying the Valley’s best food trucks and listening to live music from local musicians.
The market was created by two friends, Lindsey Holt and Coley Arnold, who both felt that Arizonans could use a little more junk in their trunks. The first vintage market would take place in the backyard of a Phoenix residence in September of 2011. In 2014, it welcomed 20,000 shoppers to its gates.
The market doesn’t just showcase the finest artisans, but also provides a “treasure trove of ideas and design inspiration.” On Sunday, a few lucky shoppers will have the opportunity to participate in “Flip Your Junk,” in which participants scour the market to find items they can take home and repurpose to sell in their own space.
Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market is also proud to announce new partnership with Meira House, a Phoenix area nonprofit working with the homeless and providing meaningful change in urban Phoenix. During the market, creators and gal pals Holt and Coley will also be collecting gently used and new adult shoes in their booth for those who are in need.
Shoppers who donate a pair of shoes will receive 20 percent in the Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market booth.
Want to experience Junk in the Trunk for yourself? Early entry admission is available on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. for $10 per adult ticket, and regular admission is available on Saturdays and Sundays after 10 a.m. for $5. Children under the age of 12 are admitted for free. The market ends at 4 p..m on both Saturday and Sunday.
