Located three miles outside the village of Three Oaks, Michigan, surrounded by tranquil farmland settings, Blue Moon Vintage Market is an antique warehouse of more than 6,000 square feet full of primitives, antiques, and vintage items in every style you can imagine.
The market is the brainchild of a vintage-loving mother and daughter duo, Vicki and Jen Kerr. After losing a family member unexpectedly in 2012, the two decided to channel their grief into creative endeavors. Vicki had spent Jen’s childhood dragging her to various flea markets and antique shows giving her daughter the “picking bug” early. The two discovered a passion for re-purposing furniture and other items, eventually showing their items at various markets as their house overflowed with merchandise. In March 2015, Blue Moon Vintage Market was born.
Blue Moon Vintage Market is held once a month, in addition to a few special days that are added on the calendar when available. Blue Moon Vintage Market doesn’t feature set booths, but the cavernous space is instead filled with vignettes, scenes set with this-or-that piece to show shoppers what it would look like in their own home.
Right before each market day, Blue Moon Vintage Market is re-staged to keep the market updated with new merchandise and fresh finds. Past merchandise included vintage life jackets, antique tin letters, circus statutes and lights made of re-purposed industrial steel.
If you spot some of the newest items on the market’s social media, go early before your desired item is gone. Blue Moon Vintage Market even features treasures from noted thrifter and reality star Danielle Colby of A&E’s American Pickers. Chalk painting classes are also held throughout the year to help anyone re-purpose or remodel items from their home.
Treasure-hunting at the Blue Moon Vintage Market will thrill as the Kerrs hunt all over the Midwest for the best picks. Parking is free.
