Blue Moon Vintage Market is owned by a mother/daughter duo and was created in March 2015. We are often asked how we became market owners and it's a story we love to share. So.....here's our story.....Vicki (mom) has always been into home decor, especially hunting for treasures at flea markets and auctions. Jen (daughter) was taken to every flea market in the NW Indiana area early on (even though she did not exactly appreciate it back then). Jen got the picking bug in college and went on to decorate her home with her treasures and finds. In December 2012, we lost a family member very unexpectedly. We were having a very hard time processing our loss so Jen asked mom "what do you need to do with all of this?" Her response thru a lot of tears was "I want to take a chalk painting class." Of course I (Jen) had no idea what she was talking about so I did my homework and found an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® stockist a few hours away in central Indiana. We took the workshop in February 2013 and were immediately hooked. We processed our grief thru our new found therapy and began to paint everything. We started going to auctions every week and in no time we had our items on consignment in different stores. We became vendors at a new vintage market that summer in Three Oaks, MI. That market closed in the fall of 2014 and after a lot of thought and encouragement from the previous market owner.....we decided to create the Blue Moon Vintage Market. We like to say that we were able to turn our grief into something that we both enjoy....and we get to do it together :) We are also Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® stockists!
