Vintage Whites flea market coming to West Bottoms Aug. 26-27

Can’t get enough of the West Bottoms flea markets? You’ll get an extra opportunity to shop for vintage and antique wares this month when The Vintage Whites brings its nationally renowned traveling show to the middle deck of the 12th Street Bridge Aug. 26 and 27.

The Vintage Whites Market, considered one of the top traveling flea markets in the country by magazines such as Romantic Country and Flea Market Decor, will comprise more than 150 vendors, live music, a petting zoo, fashion show, face painting, beer gardens and an appearance by Ree Drummond, star of the Food Network’s “Pioneer Woman.”

Jana Roach and Vanessa Pleasants of Montana started The Vintage Whites Market in 2010 in a garage with five vendors. Today, they produce markets in Montana, Utah and Colorado, each drawing more than 6,000 attendees. Roach and Pleasants also host a blog and online community with more than 350,000 followers.

Tickets to the West Bottoms event range from $6 to $32 for adults. Kids under 12 are free. For more information, visit
