Yes, ladies and gents, the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer returns for its seventh season next week and Ben and I are stoked! So stoked, in fact, we just air high-fived in our living room where the above mounted bull horns of Vintage Mixers past overlook. 

This vintage vendor fair gathers local lovers, experts, and protectors of vintage in one location. It is the mecca, the Super Bowl if you will, of all things collectible and nostalgic within the Pittsburgh area. Offering genuine vintage men and women's fashion, art, housewares, vinyl, home décor and more from 30+ regional vendors, this event cannot be missed in my book. Teamsters Local Union 249 in Lawrenceville, once again, is home base. The Mixer main event occurs Saturday, May 14th, from 9am until 4pm. Hunt for your next story all while enjoying goodies from Pgh Po'boy and Berlin Street Food, jam out to local DJ's, sip on curated drinks by Espresso a Mano and satisfy your sweet tooth via Leona's Ice Cream Sandwiches. The folks behind the Mixer have your cravings covered. Tickets are $5 a pop at the door and children under the age of 12 are F-R-E-E.

And if dropping a few bucks for tickets isn't fitting your fancy, check my Instagram for a lil' giveaway.  

When it comes to the hunt and the obsession (as my dear friend Leslie would say), I crave first dibs. The Pittsburgh Vintage Night Owl event, occurring the Friday prior to the main event, gives folks early access with a side of live jazz, cocktails from Allegheny Wine Mixer, and eats from Lenna's Food Truck. This is where you will find me and my husband the night of Friday the 13th. It will be serving as our third wedding anniversary celebration which occurs on the 17th. Based on our mutual love of vintage and embracing storied treasures with a life lived long before our own, this is our idea of a perfect date night. Tickets are $15 a pop for the Night Owl event and well worth every cent. Grab your tickets here and we will see you there!

Thanks to the amaze folks behind the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer, 
I have two (2) General Admission Tickets for Saturday's Main Event to give away!

Follow along on my Instagram for further details!

Cheers, Jessa
