Yesterday morning I went to one of the biggest vintage market attractions in Saint Louis. The Gypsy Caravan is an annual event that helps supports the St. Louis Symphony. I had heard about the event last year and was interested in going, but unfortunately I heard about the disastrous parking situation and that alone kept me from going. Fortunately this year, the event learned from its mistakes and did a better job this year in regards to dealing with the parking and traffic.
I arrived around 9:40am and I must say I was even impressed with the turnout of vendors and buyers. Yet a friend of mine who had been to last year's event informed me she thought there were not as many vendors as last year. So I can only imagine how big it was compared to this year.
So I decided to just start at the very end of one side of the vendors and just work my way up and down each isle. I saw some really great home made crafts and unique ideas, and other vendors had items that really sent you back in time. There were also food vendors as well but I just bought a hotdog and a soda while in the Arena. Thankfully the AC was going full blast.
As if outside wasn't enough, apparently they had also opened up the inside of the Saint Charles Family Arena to vendors as well. The main ground floor had tons of vendors and then there more vendors even on the second floor. So I wrapped up looking around about 11:40am and decided to head back home. I actually was able to make my way through the whole caravan and only purchase 2 items, necklaces. One was fancy with a high heel shoes in black and gold, the other a black leather necklace that had a beautiful brass centerpiece.
The weather was just really hot and I needed to get home to recharge myself for our family gathering held at a relative's house that afternoon to celebrate Memorial Day.
Of course I took more pictures than the ones you see here. To see the rest of my collection click on the link below.
