The Shreveport Scottish Rite Antique & Vintage Bazaar was created to:
1) Raise much needed funds to maintain the this one-of-a-kind piece of Shreveport & Louisiana history
2) Provide an air-conditioned summertime event for downtown Shreveport
3) Support local businesses and foster a tight-knit antiques & vintage community
We launched this event in July of 2019, and the response from the city, community, and media were incredible. We believed the event would be successful, but had no idea just how well it would go. We created this event to raise funds for an emergency plumbing issue on the second floor that greatly jeopardized key parts of the building. The incredible response from the public & vendors greatly contributed to our goal of replacing 100 year-old plumbing, and got us well on our way to financing that project. Fundraising aside, it was amazing to see just how happy and cheerful everyone was. It was truly miraculous to us. In 2020, we will feature more vendors, more appetizing concessions, and other improvements. Please joins us in 2020 as a shopper or a vendor and come have a blast with us!
For shoppers, a $5 donation allows you to entrance into our marble lobby & beautiful beaux arts dining hall (tickets are good for both days, children 12 & under are free). Here you will find a wide variety of curated treasures from all over the world. Teenagers and young adults will find vintage shirts, dresses, vinyl, and other fashion accessories. Adults enjoy our mid-century decor, Victorian jewelry, and a host of other designs from a host of different periods. If you want to take a break from shopping, enjoy a guided tour of our treasured Cathedral by a Scottish Rite member. Finally, concessions will be available in the lobby.
For vendors, this event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to boost sales and promote your store or brand. Within one weekend, you can expect to have more than 900 serious shoppers engage you, your brand, and your wares. This event is primarily focused on antique & vintage items, and designed for vendors who professionally or semi-professionally deal within the Ark-La-Tex. This event is not intended for “flea-market” style merchandize, crafts, or multi-level marketing items. Vendors are vetted and will be accepted after a review of their brand and inventory. Our coordinator is very responsive and he strives to make sure our vendors are successful.
Thank you for stopping by!
