The Pensacola Vintage Collective will host a Vintage Block Party at The Handlebar in downtown Pensacola Sunday, May 7th from 1-6 p.m. The PVC is a local organization whose aim is to support the growing vintage scene on the Gulf Coast.
Founded in 2020, the PVC has hosted several markets where both local and regional small businesses have had the opportunity to showcase their vintage clothing, housewares, and handcrafted items here in Pensacola.
Sunday’s event will feature over 40 vintage dealers and artists with handmade items, food, drinks, and live music from The Yardlights.
One vendor spotlight is the CUTEST handmade rug maker, Sunny Side Rugs. Her social media game is as vibrant and fun as her art. Here’s what she has to say:
“Hi, I’m Josie! My love for art and cute home decor led me to create Sunnyside Rugs. Expect to find a variety of hand-tufted decorative art rugs at my booth: plant holders, rug mirrors, wall hangings, and more. I love creating rugs that will brighten up any space. See you at the market!“
It’s cool to have so many great creators side by side with all the vintage clothing and home decor that PVC is known for.
Another sweet vendor is Brian Tan who specializes in black-and-white interconnecting line art. His unique style and creative approach work well with different media. His art has been featured in everything from coffee and beer packaging, custom clothing, street art installations, interior wall spaces, and even on the jerseys of the NJ Devils NHL hockey teams warm-up gear!
Expect to find canvas works, prints, and a random assortment of one-of-a-kind items in his booth, as well as an interactive art piece that will allow each participant to decorate their own T-Shirt!
There will also be a food drive with the Pensacola Community Fridge, so please bring a dry canned good.
