Shopping for vintage wares can be a bit like a treasure hunt. After a day of store-hopping you might come up with nothing, but when you do discover that rare find, it’s the best thing ever. This weekend, retro-minded Twin Citians will have a few opportunities to dive into collections where they just might find that key piece they’ve been dreaming about. The monthly, traveling Minneapolis Vintage Night Market is setting up shop at Modist this Friday. Check out well-kept items from independent sellers. There’s A2ndhandhome, whose collection includes wooden bowls, quirky glassware, and gardening books from other eras. Old Soul Boutique has things like hot pink floral frocks, mod wardrobe additions, and yellow sundresses with rainbow belts. Other participating shops include Lighthorse Studios, Ruffled Vintage, and Dinosaur Hampton, whose new embroidery on vintage denim is highly coveted. The best part? Even if you come up empty-handed, at least there’s good beer to be had a few feet away. Also, be sure to check out Sunday’s Back Alley Bazaar III from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Golden Pearl Vintage (507 E. Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis; 612-378-3978) if Friday’s happening doesn’t sate your sartorial thirst.
