The Prairie Girls Vintage Market is once again coming to Cochrane.

Sisters, Tanya Fehr and Leah Faulkner are in their third year of showcasing vintage, re-purposed, upcycled, and creative pieces in a unique market experience.

This is not a craft fair by any stretch, although most items are one of a kind.

"The whole point is to find something different, something antique, something vintage, something retro, handmade, re-purposed, upcycled," comments Faulkner.

While you may see a few of the same vendors from last year the beauty of junking is that even the same vendors will have new pieces.

"Even the repeat vendors are bringing all new stuff and all new stock, they're encouraged by us to save specifically for this event so they can bring lots of unique finds."

Breathing new life into something old has many advantages, share the sisters.

"We are saving things from going in landfills by these vendors having creativity. Furniture or old farm pieces they get tossed every day and we can definitely us them in some other capacity."

Both ladies want to teach those younger, that just because something is old does not mean it is garbage.

"It really shows our younger generation how we don't have to be a throw a way society; where we are done with this...let's just throw it away in the garbage, (instead) how can we use it differently?"

The one stop shop vintage market will feature 50 vendors creating pop up stores displaying all sorts of unique pieces.

"It is worth coming too," shares Faulkner, "you will feel like you are in 50 different stores." 

Entry into the market costs $3 (children under 12 are free), with a portion of admission sales going directly towards Boys and Girls Club of Cochrane and Area.

The Prairie Girls Vintage Market is on Saturday, September 10 from 9 am- 4 pm at the Cochrane Ag barn.
