Offering an upscale and unique shopping experience for “trending” vintage home décor, Trends Vintage Marketplace in Redding features a unique, beautiful showroom filled with repurposed, upcycled and repainted home and garden furnishings, gifts and décor that are all vintage or vintage-inspired, along with classic antiques and collectibles.

It all began in spring 2014 when a group of vendors who sell their wares at the biannual Roses and Rust Home and Garden Show in Shasta County agreed that a full-time venue offering creative and vintage décor would be a wonderful asset to the community. Additional enthusiastic local vendors joined, and within six weeks the 10,000-square-foot showroom filled and opened.

The marketplace has blossomed. The creative talents of its 40 “cream of the crop” vendors offer a diverse range of items in an array of styles including Shabby Chic, French Country, Rustic Farm Style, Retro and Industrial.

“The typical response from our wonderful customers is amazement,” says proprietor Pamela Wood. “They are overwhelmed with excitement as they walk into the showroom for the first time. We often hear comments like ‘This is the best store in Redding’ and ‘This is my new favorite store!’”

Reasonable prices and clean, beautifully decorated booths that offer inspiring decorating ideas and are easy to shop at, keep customers returning. Some visit on a weekly basis bringing friends and family.

“Our vendors are friendly and always willing to help you with your decorating needs,” says Wood. Each booth offers something different, and new merchandise is added daily. Find lamps, clocks and furniture made from vintage cars, along with barnwood signs, chicken wire cabinets, farm tables, pink lace garlands and French accents, and everything in between. The Garden Room offers unique hand-crafted potting benches, rusty yard art and patio furnishings. Several vendors make unique jewelry from vintage pieces and found objects.

Special events planned for 2015 include chalk-painting classes, a “Show and Shine Event” during Kool April Nights week, and a French Flea Market in spring.

Wood has over 35 years of antique store experience. She owned and operated several antique mall stores in other California locations, and has been a committee member and vendor of the Roses and Rust show as well as a vendor at other local antique stores.

“Trends by far is the best venture I have done to date. I credit its success to the quality of our vendors and the merchandise they sell,” says Wood.  “I am over-the-top impressed with them and their love and dedication to Trends. This wonderful group is like a second family – we have a lot of fun at the marketplace every day! Our motto is ‘We love it here!’ … and we really do!”
