|KalamazooKitty Marketplace May Day|
It is hard to know where to begin to recap the day because so many wonderful things happened, so let's start with the facts:
*Over 100 awesome, hand-picked booths filled with vintage items, painted furniture, signs & art, boho clothing, salvage and so on and so on!
*9 local food trucks/vendors set up before the gates opened with everything from hot coffee to made-to-order omelettes! Did you get one of those omelettes? They were the talk of the day!
*Vintage campers....glampers! Wow were those cute...
*Kalamazoo Speedway on Ravine Rd.
*Sunday, May 1, 2016, 10-3
*UPCOMING: Sunday, October 16, 2016
*To bring local shops & food trucks to one place in Kalamazoo for an incredible day of shopping!
*To showcase local vendors and beyond...
*To give Kalamazoo a shopping experience that cannot be found anywhere else.
*Almost 6000 shoppers attended this event, with the majority of them being Pre-Sale ticketholders!
*Mothers, sisters, friends. Husbands, wives, coworkers. Neighbors, cousins, daughters. Pickers, collectors, makers. Me, you and everyone else!
So in preparation of the upcoming KalamazooKitty Marketplace, I would like to reflect back on some great memories that were captured by Butterfly Girl Photography on May 1st.

Have you ever seen anything so cute?! This camper was adorable inside and out! A growing trend in America right now is the remodeling of vintage campers into something fabulous...a glamper! Don't need a camper, but you need vintage camping gear?... Look here! Coolers, chairs, cookware, etc. Look for more vintage campers at the Fall Marketplace and make sure you ask to peek inside or you will miss the best part!
