If you know me, you know I have always been a bit obsessed with mid-century modern design, clothing, decor, and more, and am basically in love with everything from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. Luckily our city of St. Pete, FL has an incredible monthly Vintage Market that we first attended and wrote about back in 2021. A little over a year ago they moved from their original location on Second Ave South to a brand new space across town – so we had to check it out!

The market is typically open the first weekend of every month – Sat 9-6 and Sun 9-5 – it features 30+ vendors with over 15 thousand square feet of unique items now located at 2906 34th Street S, Saint Petersburg, FL, United States, Florida.
The good news is that it’s now located in a space that has much more parking in an actual parking lot, however, the day we chose to go, the parking was still a bit hard to come by as the new space is located next to a grocery store in a plaza that is typically busy on the weekends. It’s definitely in a less charming part of town but we stayed patient and eventually got a parking spot and headed in to see the new setup. As soon as we entered it felt exactly the same as the old location. Amazing treasures everywhere we looked and the place was packed both with vintage items and people!
Vintage Marché gets merchandise from various vendors that they refer to as Bees. Bees, or pickers travel the region and country searching for the best vintage furniture, lighting, home decor, art, jewelry, clothing, and anything nostalgic. Vintage Marché has adopted the Bee as its symbol and is prominently used in the logo and brand elements.
The bee has been a symbol of immortality and resurrection from Ancient Egypt, and in Napoleon’s time as a symbol of industriousness and prestige. It can be found in Renaissance paintings as a symbol of love and is a modern-day symbol representing community. The Vintage Marché Bee symbolizes a collective of like-minded people coming together to resurrect and love all things vintage. A must-visit in St. Pete for sure!
