In addition its range of vendors, The Revival is holding several free seminars from experts on topics such as "Choosing Art for Your Home," "Styling Your Event or Wedding With Vintage Inspiration," and "How to Recycle Your Old Clothing into A Trendy New Pieces for Your Wardrobe" to name a few.
"When the idea for The Revival first came about, I wanted to create a community-like atmosphere for buyers and sellers to come together, shop and share their love of vintage," said Weatherly Copenhaver, founder of The Revival and owner of Decatur, Ga.-based gallery, Wild Oats and Billy Goats. "Vintage is more than a style; it's a way to repurpose items so they may find a new or different use. I believe the market will appeal to anyone from the crafty do-it-yourselfer, to a soon-to-be-bride or a budding fashonista, and look forward to sharing all The Revival has to offer with the people of Atlanta."
The Revival will be held at The Goat Farm Arts Center, 1200 Foster Street, NW, Atlanta, Ga. 30318. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased onsite or online at http://therevivalofvintage-efbevent.eventbrite.com/.
