Refresh and recycle: Vintage Market returns Saturday


Last year’s Vintage Market took place on the Panama City Marina. This year’s Historic Downtown Panama City Vintage Market is moving into the old Historic Marie Hotel building at the corner of Fifth Street and Harrison Avenue. The first market is Saturday, April 13, and it will continue the second Saturday of each month through November. Beginning May 11, vendors also will set up on the street.

PANAMA CITY — Refresh the look of your home, or yourself, with new-to-you treasures when the Historic Downtown Vintage Market reopens for the season.

 “The vendors will be ready to haggle, and you will get bargains. It’s gonna be fun,” said event organizer Lisa Doss.

But sometimes you can’t put a price on hand-picked collectibles.

“They’re memories from when you were a child. Some people collect certain colors of glass and dishes,” said Doss, who sells vintage clothing, jewelry and furniture. “My whole life, I’ve always loved to play house.”

The Vintage Market opens Saturday in the old Historic Marie Hotel building, which once again will be filled with relics from the past.

“There are now four garage doors, so the whole front will be opened up,” said Debi Anderson, who owns Elegant Endeavors downtown with Jane Lindsey. “We’re going to be open early on in the morning as well, since the Vintage Market is so close to us. Estate Treasures will be open as well.”

The Vintage Market began last year to coincide with Art-Tique, which resumes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in downtown Panama City. The market has been moved from the Panama City Marina, so vendors and shoppers don’t have to worry about the weather.
