Antique & artful flair

Vintage and Art Street Faire returns to downtown Camas

The seventh annual Vintage and Art Street Faire will return to downtown Camas Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will bring more than 60 vintage, antique, and local art vendors that fill the town with all things vintage, repurposed and artful.

Vintage offerings include a variety of indoor and outdoor furniture and home and garden items, as well as clothing and accessories. Art was added to the event last year and includes sculptures, paintings, glass art, metal work, handmade jewelry, fiber art, recycled art and more.

The faire is on Northeast Fourth Avenue and Birch streets, near Camas Antiques, 305 N.E. Fourth Ave.

“Downtown Camas with its historic buildings, tree lined streets, and wonderful shops is indeed beautiful in its own right,” said Sarah Voss, vintage vendor coordinator. “However, with the Vintage and Art Street Faire, the historic streets transform into a picturesque little market. There’s an abundance of little tented boutiques that each display their passion for creating beautiful things for their homes and that of our wonderful customers.”

Returning favorite vintage vendors include Aunt Adeline’s Vintage Jewelry, Moltwear repurposed vintage clothing, and Dare to Dream, which brings an eclectic mix of vintage items displayed around and throughout a red and white vintage trailer. New vintage vendors include Whimsical Details with canvas pillows, repurposed furniture and silver; and Dollhouse, which features shabby chic upcycled finds.

Returning artists include Late Night Lampworks with recycled glass and tin jewelry, Black Rabbit & Co with fabric art and vintage treasures, and Silver River Designs with unique batik handbags and photography.

New artists include Tamra Sheline watercolor artist, Claire Bandfield stoneware artist, and Visual Lifesavers Art, original oil paintings.

Live music accompanies the all-day event and includes jazz guitar and upright bass by Anthony Utehs and Jonah Svihus from 9 to 10:30 a.m., Carol Rossio Jazz Trio with many songs in French from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and the smooth indie sounds of Caryn Jamieson from 2 to 4 p.m. Fresh food options will include sweet and savory waffles by Hello Waffle, Getta Gyro, My Dad’s Kettle Korn, and pies and pastries by Truly Scrumptious.

“There is such a great feel to this event,” said Carrie Schulstad, executive director of the Downtown Camas Association. “You can come early for coffee, peruse all the vintage and art, find treasures, enjoy the music, and grab lunch. All our downtown shops are open as well so you can make it an all-day experience in Downtown Camas.”
