Kick it old school with this upcoming
vintage market

 

The Old School Vintage Market returns to South Central Kansas, with the outdoor market being offered in Iuka on June 8. The market will include boutique offerings, handmade crafts, antique furniture, candles, home décor, and even specialty food items, from freeze-dried candies to breads to pickles.

Luke and Caitlin Laha, the founders of the annual event, describe themselves as having “a passion for (the) old, dingy, unique, and homemade. They bought an 1880 farmhouse a few years ago, restoring it and combining its original features with “modern farmhouse fare.”

“We enjoy treasure hunting for items that fit the era of the house while repurposing things to be functional for our family,” their website reads.

For more information, visit www.oldschoolvintagemarket.com.
