Out with the new, in with the old.

On Sunday, a large crowd came out to the Vintage Market which is held every fourth Sunday at Pierce College.

The Vintage Market officials hosted more than 25 vendors at the event, some catering food while others promoted fashion.

Different vendors who attended the event displayed jewelry, furniture and even classic albums.

Sol De Cobre, a jewelry business vendor, showed off there and made items that attracted a few stragglers.

“Its good, we make handmade jewelry and we come every fourth Sunday,” said Felipe Dorantes, owner of  Sol De Cobre. “The material we use on the jewelry are leather, string and copper wire for our products.”

With the admission price for the market being $2, many wandered from vendor to vendor looking in the different tents.

Jenette Jessop is a vendor who made her own professional soaps that had various flavors and aromas.

“These are handmade soaps from the bottom up. Soon it’s going to be organic,” said Jessop’s husband Tony Jessop. “We also take personal requests if someone wants to create any combination of fragrance.”

The name of the Jessop’s business is Spirit Spa. Some of the customers have dedicated years to coming to the Vintage Market.

“I love it. Every month I have been attending, for a couple of years. Love the fact that everything is old,” attendee Shanit Nissan said.

Fashion was a prominent subject for most of the vendors, although some included clothes and artwork.

Most of the vintage items were classics and throwbacks that are unique and not commercialized by mainstream stores.

The Vintage Market will take place again on May 25 in the Parking Lot 7 near the science building.
