27 May Brick Presents: Viewmaster, A Virtual Vintage Shopping Experience
As though we are surprised, Brick, nestled in the heart of Blue Star Arts complex, has managed once again to support the local community in San Antonio, TX. This time by opening their virtual doors to vintage vendors and makers from San Antonio and beyond. All will be on hand for a stellar night of vintage shopping and good vibes, from the safety of their own homes. The event aims to nurture San Antonio’s growing vintage community during these unusual times by encouraging local businesses to work and grow together, bolster their online presence, and support sustainable shopping practices.

Viewmaster: A virtual vintage shopping experience will be an online-only event that will go live on Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat on Friday, May 29th starting at 3 pm. Originally scheduled, before COVID, was Brickadelic Vintage Market, which brings together 30+ vintage sellers and local makers under one roof three times a year. With so many of San Antonio’s vintage shops and pop-ups forced to shut down and pivot to online sales, Brick is translating the Brickadelic format to their social media platforms.

Aiming to create a space that ultimately lends a voice to local vintage vendors and makers, Brick has axed the traditional fees charged to vendors for participation in Brick’s pop up markets. Instead, vendors will donate the amount of their choosing to a GoFundMe campaign started by friends of the venue to help Brick as they continue to pay their employees despite not being able to generate revenue from hosting public and private events.
Included in the May 29th lineup are San Antonio favorites Grey Moon Vintage, Hello Tallulah, The Mermaid Farm, Moon Foxx Vintage, Overflow Vintage, Rude Remix Clothing, Mari’s Closet, Wanderlust Revival and many more.

In addition to the stellar lineup, local bands will be providing a soundtrack for the event with contributions from San Antonio’s own Idyll Green, The Shores of Orion, and Mirame. The event will conclude with an Instagram live stream performance by singer/songwriter Alyson Alonzo at 8 pm.
