Vintage Tour of Missouri: St Louis Spring Fling Vintage Festival

Tuesday, May 13, 2014


On Saturday, I met my best friend, Amanda in downtown St Louis to go to the 2nd annual Spring Fling The Spring Fling is hosted by St Louis boutique, Parsimonia Vintage and is one of the very few vintage events in the area.




This was my first year at the event and it was a wonderful time! It took place at the historic Crown Square, next to the city's oldest soda shop, Crown Candy Kitchen- in business since 1913. We had hoped to take the kids to Crown Candy but the line was never less than 50 people long so we skipped it this time.

The street was lined with vendors, both from brick and mortar and online shops, and a few who only set up at festivals. I got to chat with many curators and artists while we admired their beautiful things. My friend, Erin was there, with her beautiful booth from Yellow Bird Gifts




I bought a great pair of confetti cat eye sunglasses and a chunky bakelite bangle for a song.


 


Here are just a few of my favorite vendors from the Spring Fling. Do check them out online!

  3. What a fun event! I, too, wish there were events like this in my area. Alas, living in a small town in a rural part of my state means events like this don't happen very often. So glad you shared your great finds, too.

  5. Gosh...
    *hyperventilates heavily*
    What a mesmerizing amount of amazement! This, to me, would be a dream. Unfortunately, I have never had a chance to get into one of those events, or go to one of those places.. since we don't have any over here.

    Still, thank you ever so much for sharing this.

  9. What a fabulously fun looking event! Love your cheerful springtime outfit. That lilac-y shade of purple should be the official colour of May, if you ask me.
